BANGKOK (Reuters) – The general manager of Thailand’s women national soccer team apologized to fans on Wednesday after the record 13-0 defeat by world champions the United States in the World Cup in France.
The Group F result is the largest margin of victory in both men’s and women’s World Cup football, surpassing Germany’s 11-0 win over Argentina in 2007 and almost double the Americans own previous record of 7-0 against Taiwan in 1991.
Thailand - Goals - Halftime - US - Goals
Thailand were trailing by three goals at halftime before the U.S. netted ten goals in the second half, four of which came in a six minute interval shortly after the restart.
“We met with one of the strongest opponent in the world but I did not think we would lose this much,” said Thailand manager Nualphan Lamsam adding that she, the coaching staff, and the players “would like to apologize to all our fans… and thanks for all their support.”
“We will do our best in the next two games,” she said.
The last time the two teams met, the U.S. won 9-0.
