The USWNT is the favorite to repeat as Women's World Cup champions, but that doesn't mean they're taking this tournament for granted as the defending champions. Led by five goals from Alex Morgan, the Americans set the record for the largest win in Women's World Cup history with their performance. However, let's keep in mind that this win came against a Thailand team that's ranked 34th in the world, compared to the top-ranked USA.
