The United States Women's National Team got off to a great start at the 2019 World Cup on Tuesday, pouring in 13 goals against a hapless Thailand squad. But many are accusing them of celebrating a little too much once the game was in-hand.

Star forward Alex Morgan took to Twitter to celebrate the fact that four World Cup first-timers - Mallory Pugh, Rose Lavelle, Samantha Mewis and Lindsey Horan - all scored in their debuts. It was a strong message.

Responses to Morgan's tweet show that people are divided about the late-game celebrating by the team. Some think the United States should have shown more class. Some don't think it's a big deal at all.

Here's the tweet, with a number of responses arguing both sides.

Goal differential is a major tiebreaker at the group stage, so you can certainly make a case that it's important to score as many goals as possible. The celebrating aspect of it all is what's up for debate.

Regardless, Morgan and the rest of the United States team still have two more games before knockout play - against Sweden and Chile. A win in either game should put them through.

The United States will next take on Chile on Sunday.
