No Trapp, and USA is up 3-0.

Coincidence?

I'd rather have Maria von Trapp at the 6, and she's dead.

I get wanting the goal difference advantage and kind of wanting the World Cup record, but throwing on an attacker for a defender when you're up 7-0, against a team of basically amateurs, I am not on board with that.

And that is why I don't put the women's game on the same level as the men's game. A country with the population of Iceland can compete at the men's level but because the US is so far ahead on women's right and sports than most countries, the women's game is still relatively uncompetitive and maybe 5-6(US, Japan, Germany, England, France, Australia, Brazil)teams have a realistic chance at winning a world cup. The other teams are just competing to fill out the competition.

I am less impressed and more expecting a result like this because the disparity between these two countries in terms of the women's game is that large. I was suprised Thailand was in the tournament in the first place.

Thailand's basically only in because North Korea got put in a group with South Korea and knocked out on goal difference before the Asian finals, likely because they didn't want North Korea doing rampant doping like 2011 (they were banned from 2015).

Hmmmm.... I get what you are saying but historically the men's game has been ruled by a few countries as well. Only 8 countries have won a men's World Cup: Francex2, England, Italyx4, Germanyx4, Spain, Brazilx5, Argentinax2, Uruguayx2.

Well only one team can win a given WC anyway but are you really going to use that to debate the heavy disparity between the women's game and men's game. The Netherlands, Belgium, Portugal have never won a WC and they have consistently produced some of the greatest talent the world has ever seen. Also, some of those teams have also failed to make it out the group stage in other world cups? You think that is going to happen anytime soon with the big players in the women's game(other than maybe a group of death type scenario)?

You were talking about a disparity between women. But there is also a disparity in the men's tournaments as well.

No need to get angry man.

Not angry at all. You seem like one of the most logical people on here. But Thailand is a country of almost 70 million people and they got demolished when Iceland has 350,000 people and drew with Argentina, one of the few nations to win it all.

That's my point, even though they may not win it. You will at least see a competitive match in the men's game. I am not a big women's soccer fan but I wouldn't be surprised if the US women's team doesn't win the tournament comfortably by(3 or more goals each game). Obviously, I wouldn't take the over on that prediction but I wouldn't lose my mind if they did.

They also unbalanced the groups putting Australia, Japan and South Korea all in the same group at the Asia Cup. Thailand drew with Australia in the semis before losing on penalties though (and then losing to China for 3rd place), both teams had already qualified for the World Cup by then.


With Jesse Marsch and David Wagner at the helms of teams in the top flight, YA will cover their exploits this season.
