On Tuesday afternoon, the United States Women's National Team put together a brilliant performance against Thailand in the World Cup.

After watching Sweden take the lead in group stage with a 2-0 win over Chile, the U.S. stomped Thailand by a final score of 13-0.

With the win, the U.S. took the lead in the group and gave fans something to cheer for. However, a few people watching from home weren't happy with the way the U.S. players went about their celebrations.

Canadian soccer players Clare Rustad, Kaylyn Kyle, and Diana Matheson ripped U.S. stars Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe for the way they celebrated their goals.

Here's what they had to say.

All three have a point. The United States is a vastly superior team and shouldn't feel the need to celebrate their goals like they just won the World Cup.

And yet, this is what they've been working their entire lives for. If they can't celebrate with their teammates on the biggest stage, when is it okay to celebrate?

Next up for the United States is a contest against Chile on Sunday. The real test in group stage comes against Sweden on June 20.

Stay tuned for the latest from the Women's World Cup.
