On Tuesday afternoon the United States Women's National Team made their 2019 World Cup debut against Thailand.

After watching Sweden take a lead in group play with a 2-0 win over Chile, the U.S. women responded by dismantling Thailand.

After five goals from Alex Morgan and 13 total goals from seven different players, the U.S. team walked out with a 13-0 win.

The victory gave the United States a solid advantage in group play with a massive goal differential.

However, a few fans weren't happy with the outcome. A minority group wasn't happy with the way the American women kept scoring, despite a win being virtually guaranteed at the half.

Well, former U.S. soccer star Abby Wambach had a message for them:

"For all that have issue with many goals: for some players this is their first World Cup goal, and they should be excited," Wambach said.

"Imagine it being you out there.This is your dream of playing and then scoring in a World Cup. Celebrate. Would you tell a men’s team to not score or celebrate?"

What she said.

Next up for the United States is a contest against Chile on Sunday. The biggest test of World Cup group stage will come against Sweden on June 20.
