The USWNT hype is real
The US team scored a whopping 18 goals — 13 against Thailand — in a single group stage without conceding a goal, a World Cup record. The only other team to keep a clean sheet in the first round was Germany.
The defending champs will face Spain in the Round of 16 on Monday in Reims.
