Didnt see a thread for this thought It was worth following. the US women broke a whole bunch of records in their opener today. most goals in a half (10) most goals in a game (13) and tied the record for most goals by a player - 5. Yes I know its Thailand, but still, the world champs, looked.. well like world Champs. next up is Chile, then Sweden. for reference there have been 24 goals scored in all the other WWC games COMBINED. prior to the game today.

US beats Sweden 2-0 to win the group and set a group stage record for goals with 18. Now the bracket portion of the World Cup starts. The US will start off with Spain in the Round of 16 on Monday at 11 Central time. A win would set up a quarterfinal match against either Brazil or France

US barely beats England 2-1. England had a tying goal waved off for offsides, then had a PK saved by the Us goaltender. its the 3rd straight 2-1 win for the US which enters the final having scored 24 goals. the next one will tie the alltime record , shared between the 1991 US squad and the 2003 Germany squad, for most goal;s in a World cup. both the recordholders won the World cup that year.
