• Women’s World Cup Record Breaking Win For USA vs TH

    Match day five of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup kicked off in Paris Tuesday afternoon. The day’s matches feature New Zealand and the Netherlands in Group E and all four teams of Group F, the last group in the tournament.

    United States 13 – 0 Thailand

    The last team to play their opening match, the United States had something to prove when they opened their 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup defense Tuesday. The U.S. women were the clear favorite to win this match and with five wins and two draws, they had never lost an opening match in the history of the tournament.

    United States vs. Thailand match recap

    To call this match a rout is an understatement. Continuing their opening match undefeated streak, the number one ranked United States barely gave the No. 34 ranked Thailand a change.

    The U.S. came out of the gate strong, dominating possession and keeping the ball in Thailand’s half of the field. They found the back of the net in the fifth minute on their third shot. But after VAR review, the goal was called back because a U.S. player was in an offside position.

    Morgan corrected that in the 12th minute, putting away her first of the night. Kelly O’Hara played a perfect ball over the top of the defenders from the right side of the penalty area and Morgan headed it past the Thai keeper effortlessly.

    It was all downhill from there.

    By the end of the first half, the U.S. had taken a 3-0 lead. No one could have predicted they would score 10 more in the second half.

    The United States’ 13 goals is the most-ever scored in a World Cup match – men or women. Alex Morgan’s five goals ties the single-game record in a Women’s World Cup match held by Michelle Akers (USA).

    “We were really clinical,” Alex Morgan said of their attacking play. “Every goal matters in this tournament.”

    In the end, the U.S. notched 13 goals on 39 shots, 21 of which were on target. Thailand blocked nine of the shots, but gave up 10 corner kicks.

    Chile 0 – 2 Sweden

    Chile made their first appearance in the Women’s World Cup Tuesday in the Group F opener. The 39th ranked La Roja Femenina took on ninth-ranked Sweden, who have played in every FIFA Women’s World Cup since it began in 1991. It is the first time these two sides had met.

    Match recap

    Through the first 45 minutes, Chile staved off Sweden’s attack. Sweden’s best chance came off their third corner kick in the 23rd minute. A well-placed header to the bottom corner of the net looked certain to go in. But a fingertip save by a diving Goalkeeper Christiane Endler knocked the ball clear as it teetered on the goal line, keeping Sweden off the score sheet. The Chilean keeper made two more big saves in the first half, blanking the Swedish attack.

    The Swedish women held 70 percent of the possession, and outshot La Roja 8-2. But the score remained tied nil-nil as the whistle blew to end the half.

    The weather was a tale of two halves in Rennes, as a the sunshine at the start of the match gave way to an absolute soaking downpour for the ending 45 minutes. In the 72nd minute, the ref has made the decision to pause the match, due to the severity of the weather.

    After the weather delay, Sweden’s attack came back in full force, finally breaking the deadlock in the 83rd minute. A scrappy fight for the ball in the Chilean box had led to a few missteps and missed kicks when Asllani ran up and popped the ball over Endler’s head for the first goal.

    In the fourth minute of stoppage time, Janogy – who entered the match as a sub, in the 81st minute – found the ball 40 yards out and out ran three defenders to put away her first international goal. The late goal sealed Sweden’s win, giving Chile no change to equalize.


    • 83′ – Kosovare Asllani (SWE)
    • 90’+4 Madelen Janogy (SWE)


    • 67′ – Magdalena Eriksson (SWE)

    New Zealand 0-1 Netherlands

    New Zealand vs. Netherlands started the action Tuesday, culminating the first matches for Group E. Expectations were high for the Dutch in only their second World Cup appearance. Both countries had previously faced each other in the group stage of the 2015 Women’s World Cup, resulting in a 1-0 win to the Netherlands.

    Match recap

    History repeated itself in a hard-fought, back-and-forth battle on both sides of the ball. Plenty of chances were had, but no goals through 90 minutes of play.

    Patience paid off for Netherlands, however. In the second minute of stoppage time, the scoreless tie was finally broken. With tired legs, Netherland lobbed a ball into the box, two headers later, Jill Roord scored her 4th International goal for Netherlands.

    Literally minutes from a draw and a much-needed point in the Group E standings, New Zealand has their tenth loss in World Cup play. Their all-time record in the Women’s World Cup is 0-3-10. The Kiwis go on to play Cameroon, who lost to Canada yesterday, while New Zealand faces Canada in a battle for the top of Group E.

    NAKHON PATHOM — Without explanation, the police cadet academy announced Sunday they would ban females and only admit men starting next year.

    Authorities said women will no longer be allowed to enrol in the Royal Police Cadet Academy for the 2019 academic year, prompting concerns among activists that sexual assault cases may gain less attention with the decrease in female officers.

    “It’s policy,” Capt. Worawut Sripakhon of the cadet academy said Monday morning by phone when asked for an explanation. “We’re not allowed to give any more information than that.”

    Supensri Puengkhokesoong, a women’s welfare activist and director of the Social Equality Promotion Foundation said the ban goes against Thailand’s Gender Equality Act and could reduce attention toward sexual assault cases and other issues involving women or children.

    “According to the law, if a woman is sexually assaulted, the police officer in charge of their case must be a woman,” Supensri said. “And cases about family and children, the police officers need to have communication skills as well as knowledge about human, female and children’s rights.”

    Many netizens expressed concern that such crimes would be handled worse by insensitive questioning from male officers.

    “Only policewomen are able to get the real testimony from the assaulted, and their stories of suffering,” Facebook used AorAe Jm Cop wrote. “It’s as if they’re raped again during investigation if there are no female offices. They would rather keep that suffering to themselves.”

    Supensri said females who had worked to enter the academy for the 2019 academic year are also upset at the new policy after having spent time and money to prepare.females lady woman banned forbidden stop work police force pattayatoday

    Facebook page Thai Female Investigators posted a widely shared photo of the report with the caption, “There will only be 10 classes of female police cadets, classes ‘66 [2009] to ‘75 [2018]. It has been the Royal Thai Police’s honor to admit female police cadets.”

    Several policewomen contacted for an interview declined to give their opinions.

    The cadet academy opened in 1901 and allowed females enrollment in 2009, having since produced about 700 policewomen.

    Attending the four-year program at the cadet academy as a Matthayom 6 high-school graduate is one of the principal ways to become a policewoman. Two other options are to enter different pre-cadet training programs and to take another test, or obtain a bachelor’s degree and then a six-month training program by the Royal Thai Police.

    Many netizens expressed disappointment at their dashed hopes and dreams of becoming future policewomen.

    “So ancient. I feel sorry for the girls and women with dreams of becoming a policewoman,” Jittawan Konsertaemaineab said.
