Reigning champs the USA have never lost their opening match of a Women’s World Cup – could Thailand pull off a soccer shock in their Group F showdown? Read on to find out how you can catch a USA vs Thailand live stream from anywhere around the world with our instructions below.
Ranked No.1 in the world and enjoying a six-game winning streak (they’ve been beaten only once in their last 39 games stretching back to 2017) the USA are unsurpringly clear favourites to win today’s match with the bookies. In contrast, Thailand have lost all but one of their last 12 games.
Live stream USA vs Thailand – where and when
Today’s match takes place at Stade Auguste-Delaune, Reims in the north of France.
Kick-off is at 9pm CET local time, 8pm BST for viewers in the UK, and 3pm ET, 12pm midday PT for those in the US. For fans cheering on in Thailand, kick-off is at 3am Thursday morning.
Flanked by the double threat of Tobin Heath and Megan Rapinoe on the wings, all eyes will be on Alex Morgan up front for the USA. The game’s current biggest star, Morgan hasn’t perhaps lived up to her billing in the two previous World Cups that she has previously appeared in, and it’s an albatross she’ll likely want to eradicate as early as possible in France.
For Thailand, hopes will be resting on striker Suchawadee Nildhamrong, and goalkeeper Tiffany Sornpao – the nation’s two best players who both play club football in the US.
The two teams have only met once before, a friendly in 2016 which saw the USA dish out a comprehensive 9-0 thrashing. The omens aren’t good for Thailand, and them avoiding a cricket score against a confident USWNT will be seen as a major achievement.
We’re expect a goal-fest and you can ensure you don’t miss any of the action by following the instructions below and grabbing a live stream of USA vs Thailand wherever you are in the world.
