Always found that annoying in soccer.
Not to target the USA team, because i saw this a lot of time in either women or men world cup.
Just stop celebrating it's a blowout. You still see the players jumping in each others arms on goal 9,10.11.12 and even 13.
A little respect maybe.
It was Pugh's first World Cup goal. Should she not celebrate because it might have been the side's tenth goal?

No problem with the celebration but no problem with the criticisms either. It may have been her first WC goal and in 20 years a goal is a goal. But in the moment it hardly seemed like an achievement. 3rd goal in 5 minutes? 4th in 10? A bit of consideration for the opposing 11 is always welcome.

OTOH, can't deny her her Nike Moment. Getting there is no picnic.

I hope they at least took the Thai team out to party afterwards.

I saw some very sportsmanlike conduct after the match with USWNT players hugging and comforting Thailand players.

Where were these complaints after May 27, 2018 when Thailand beat Indonesia 13-0 in a friendly?

I know you aren't saying they aren't, but I just want to point out that for their part, Thailand seems okay with how it played out.

Maybe not applicable because it was a friendly and probably any celebrations got zero coverage, if there were any.
