The United States Women’s National Team got off to a fiery start at the Women’s World Cup in France, seemingly scoring at will during their opening match against Thailand.

While many of the goals were impressive in their own right, the highlight of the first half came from Tobin Heath, who sent a defender to the ground with a devastating nutmeg while attacking Thailand’s goal.

The nutmeg is something of a signature move for Heath, with U.S. Soccer even dubbing her “Queen of the Nutmeg” for her antics in practice.

On Twitter, fans poured praise on Heath for her flashy move.
