The US Women’s National Team scored more World Cup goals in one day than the men did in the 2006, 2010 and 2014 World Cups combined

Samantha Mewis of the USA celebrates with teammates after scoring her team's fourth goal during the match against Thailand on Tuesday in France.

If you tuned into the Men’s World Cup in 2018, or 2014, or 2010, or 2006, but aren’t turned into this year’s Women’s World Cup, it’s time to reconsider.

The US Women’s National Team just scored a record-breaking 13 goals against Thailand, who scored, well, none — the biggest defeat in Women’s World Cup history.

And what about the US men?

Not only did they fail to qualify for last year’s games, the women scored more goals on Tuesday than the men scored in the 2006, 2010 and 2014 World Cups combined (12).

Let’s recap.

In 2006, they scored 2.

In 2010, they scored 5.

In 2014, they scored 5.

In 2018, they scored — well, nothing. They weren’t there.

So, it took 13 years of World Cup play for the men’s team to do what the women’s team did in one day. Seventeen years if you’re counting back to 2002.
