"I did say I thought it was excessive and disrespectful the goal celebrations of the American team once the score hit 8-0".

Young fans wearing Japanese flag hair ribbons sit on the stand prior the start of the Women's World Cup Group D soccer match between Argentina and Japan at the Parc des Princes in Paris, Monday, June 10, 2019.

The U.S. women's national team has been slammed for its celebrations against Thailand, with current Canadian national team star Diana Matheson saying USWNT manager Jill Ellis should be embarrassed at her team's antics. "They're the No. 1 team in the world". Kaylyn Kyle said it was disrespectful.

The lopsided result prompted debate over both running up the score - goal difference can be crucial in the group stage of a tournament - and the American celebrations as the score mounted. For a handful of players, not only was it their first World Cup goal, but their first World Cup match.

"I understand there's a goal differential race in this tournament, and I understand they are nervous about drawing Sweden later in the tournament, but this was disgraceful from the United States", former Canadian player Clare Rustad chimed in.

USA Today columnist Nancy Armour also had no time for the critics.
