For people who complain about goals in soccer they should have liked it

For me it was lousy game to watch after we were up 7-0 I also agreed with the announcer that said we were lobbing dangerous 50-50 balls into the goal box to score that could have resulted in one of our players getting injured in throw away time. Thailand played 1-2 steps behind the whole game but took down our players hard a couple of times and it would have sucked big time to see somebody get hurt in a game like that. It is hard because everybody wants to score World Cup goals for their resume and just pride but I would have turned that into a passing clinic after going up 7-0.
I had a couple friends slobbering over the 13-0 score pointing out that the Mens teams had not scored that many World Cup goals in the last 5-6 World Cups combined or whatever number it was arguing about pay equity but to me the market bears out what Men and Women get paid and I love, love, love Alex Morgan but she would not sniff playing time on the Men's World Cup team if she decided to self identify as a dude and go out for them.
