U.S. women's team, the oldest of the World Cup

Sweden defeats newcomers Chile 2-0 after delay

Sweden defeats newcomers Chile 2-0 after delay

The Americans poured on the goals and defeated Thailand 13-0 - the biggest blowout in the tournament's history.

At an open training session, French children surrounded the US players in hopes of getting autographs. The Yanks have won three previous World Cups, victories emblazoned in the three stars above the crest on their jerseys. They have won three World Cups since women joined the event in 1991, four Olympic golds in the last six Games and have topped the Federation Internationale de Football Association women's teams' ratings every year but one for the last 11 years.

Conditions were far from ideal in Rennes for Chile's clash with Sweden due to the torrential conditions in an encounter the Scandinavians went on to win 2-0.

Rain had been falling for around a quarter of an hour amid a threat of thunderstorms when the Mexican referee, Lucila Venegas, made a decision to take the players off in the 72nd minute with the score still 0-0.

Kosovare Asilani and Madelen Janogy got themselves on the scoresheet.

"In general we are stronger than our opponents and the final 20 minutes are important for us", said Asllani.

Along with winning championships and setting records, the USA women hope to break through barriers in their sport. They will be stepping onto the field as defending World Cup champions after their 2015 win in Canada, but are joined by many of their worldwide competitors in a crusade for gender equity.On the fieldThe United States' first game comes on the fifth day of the tournament, after many other nations have already begun competition in the Group Phase of the tournament - where teams are split into six groups to play round-robin style.The U.S.is in Group F, which also includes Thailand, Chile and Sweden.

US coach Jill Ellis said the anticipation to get on the field has only grown as players watched the other teams face off.

It was a deeply disappointing result for the Football Ferns, who had resisted so well for long spells at the Stade Oceane.

And the 2019 squad has many players familiar from the 2015 World Cup and before.

"Anyone who has broken a toe knows how much it hurts", said Voss-Tecklenburg, who described the 27 year-old as "irreplaceable".
