United States vs ThailandEdit

The United States opened their defence of their Women's World Cup title with a 13–0 victory against Thailand, setting a new record for the largest margin of victory in the tournament's history, as well as the most goals in a match.[8] The majority of goals came in the second half, grouped in bunches over the span of a few minutes each. Alex Morgan scored five times, tying a tournament and team record set by Michelle Akers for most goals scored by a player in a single World Cup match.[9][10] The U.S. team were later criticised for celebrating their later goals during the match, with some media commentators and former players calling it disrespectful,[11] but the celebrations were defended by other media commentators, the team's players and members of the opposing Thai bench.[12][13]

United States vs ChileEdit

The United States fielded a reserve squad with seven changes to the starting lineup to rest its players ahead of the final group stage match against Sweden.[20] Carli Lloyd scored in the 11th minute from the edge of the penalty area and Julie Ertz added a second with a header on a corner kick in the 26th minute. Lloyd scored her second goal of the match in the 35th minute, heading in another corner kick, and missed a penalty kick in the 81st minute that would have given her a hat-trick.[21] Chilean goalkeeper Christiane Endler made several major saves as her team was outshot 26–1, and was named the player of the match for her efforts.[21] With her brace, Carli Lloyd set a new record for most consecutive World Cup appearances with a goal, having scored six matches in a row (starting in the 2015 knockout stage), surpassing the record of German forward Birgit Prinz from 2003.[22]

DisciplineEdit

Fair play points would have been used as tiebreakers in the group if the overall and head-to-head records of teams were tied, or if teams had the same record in the ranking of third-placed teams. These were calculated based on yellow and red cards received in all group matches as follows:[3]

  • first yellow card: minus 1 point;
  • indirect red card (second yellow card): minus 3 points;
  • direct red card: minus 4 points;
  • yellow card and direct red card: minus 5 points;

Only one of the above deductions were applied to a player in a single match.

Team Match 1 Match 2 Match 3 Points
                                   
  Sweden 1 1 −2
  United States 2 1 −3
  Chile 2 3 −5
  Thailand 1 2 2 −5
