SWE-W vs THL-W : Thailand suffered the ignominy of being at the receiving end of the biggest defeat in any competitive football game. The reigning world champions, the USA, thrashed them 13-0 and made the mockery out of every pre-match prediction.
Despite the USA putting forth their title credentials, not everybody enjoyed their wins. There was a lot of debate on the social media whether the USA players should have celebrated their goals, but the fact Alex Morgan and Co. did, neutrals, Thailand fans and even some factions from the USA, all labelled their actions a disgrace to the game, and against the sportsmanship.
The FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019 match will be played between Sweden and Thailand at Allianz Riviera (Nice Stadium), in Nice. The ground has a capacity of 36,178.
The game will start at 06:30 PM (IST), on Sunday, June 16
