LOS ANGELES — The Americans' 3-0 win over Chile set a record for the most-watched group-stage Women's World Cup match on U.S. English-language television.

Fox drew 5,324,000 viewers for Sunday's game, topping 4,492,000 for the Americans' 0-0 group-stage draw against Sweden in 2015. 

The game was the most-watched English-language soccer telecast in the country since last year's men's World Cup final.

In addition, Sunday's match averaged 84,000 viewers online, the second-most streamed Women's World Cup match.

The first two U.S. matches averaged 3,975,000, up 2% from 3,902,000 from four years ago.

And these record rating's are being talked about all over social media. 

The U.S. has advanced to the knockout stage and will finish group play on Thursday against Sweden.

Thursday's game against No. 9 Sweden will be the most challenging match for the U.S. out of the three games in the first round.
