The United States will launch their title defence at the Women's World Cup in Reims, France, against Thailand tonight.

U.S. put Thailand to the sword in Tuesday's record-breaking win as titleholders showed no mercy in their World Cup opener.

It is dramatic that three of the Netherlands' four Women's World Cup goals have been scored after the 87th minute, and all three have come from substitutes.

It is an intimidating assignment for the Thais, who are only appearing at their second World Cup. Would you say this about the men?

The Thai squad has two USA -born members who have played for American colleges: Goalkeeper Tiffany Sornpao plays at Kennesaw State University in Georgia, and forward Miranda Nild played at UC Berkeley - Morgan's alma mater. They were world class. Later, in high school, "she was a three-time all-league pick and was named All-American by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA)", according to her Wikipedia page. Stop judging these women with patriarchal glasses.

Morgan says that sort of experience gives the team an edge.
