Overall Game Assessment
This was an embarrassing win for the the United States. Yes it was dominating, but that is like a pro wrestler taking on a 1st grader! The United States scored 10 goals in the second half! Thailand was broken and was playing for their own pride. When we try to teach kids to be good sports, how does that message come across when you seek to embarrass your opponent? The US was never in jeopardy in this one, they did not take the foot off the throttle at all - they may have actually lost respect instead of gaining it as a result. If they did that against Sweden I would be impressed, not Thailand.

Coaching Comments
This game was over 12 minutes into it. Instead of using the substitutions to get all of the young players some experience, they brought in Carli Lloyd and Christen Press? Why? Why not get the youngsters some time and much needed experience. It will be well worth it later and a wasted opportunity.
