    National team coach Jill Ellis is stepping down after leading the United States to back-to-back Women's World Cup titles. Ellis has been coach of the team since 2014 and has led it to eight overall tournament titles, including victories at the World Cup in 2015 in Canada and earlier this month in France . "The opportunity to coach this team and work with these amazing women has been the honor of a lifetime," Ellis said in a statement released by U.S. Soccer on Tuesday. "I want to thank and praise them for their commitment and passion to not only win...

    The U.S. Women’s National Team will compete for the biggest prize in women’s soccer when it takes on the Netherlands in the championship game of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup on Sunday, July 7 at Stade de Lyon in the French capital of women’s soccer. This will be the fifth appearance in a FIFA Women’s World Cup Final for the USA, which is the first and only nation to win it on three occasions: 1991, 1999 and 2015.

  • Alex Morgan Trolls England with Tea Sipping Celebration After Scoring Winning Goal

    Today is U.S. Women’s National Team (USWNT) player Alex Morgan’s birthday, but the celebration she’ll remember most about this particular birthday has nothing to do with her age. The USWNT was in a tense and hard-fought contest with England on Tuesday afternoon at the Women’s World Cup semi final in France. When all of a sudden, Morgan broke through the English defense and used a brilliant header to put the ball into the back of the net. The goal would have been good enough, but the trolling of England with the tea sip celebration complete with upturned pinky, took things...

    When heavyweights collide, the impact is always colossal. First, there's the anticipation, and for feverish excitement, no match at this Women's World Cup has yet to compare to Friday's quarterfinal clash between the US and France. There is a reason why ticket prices have gone in the same direction as the mercury during this week's European heat wave. This is the world's top-ranked team going head-to-head against the fourth best team in the world. The defending champion versus the host. An irresistible attack against an uncompromising defense. It is "Le Grand Match." It is a match that is helping propel...

Trump told The Hill in an interview Monday that he disagrees with her actions, but loves watching women’s soccer and thinks the players are very talented.

    The prohibitive favorites coming into the tournament, Team USA has gotten off to a perfect start. Shattering records en route to an 18-0 goal differential in group play, their biggest test thus far has been Sweden, whom they dismantled with ease 2-0. Now things get serious. On June 24 they'll take on Spain in their first game of the single-elimination knockout round. If they win, they'll take on France in the round of eight, who defeated Brazil in extra time. Spain finished Group B in second place (1-1-1, 4pts), while USA finished Group H in first place (3-0-0, 9pts). Team...

    At the start of the Women's World Cup, Team USA's third match––against Sweden––was marked as a key game in the group stage of the tournament. While the U.S. entered the tournament as the reigning champions and the most-successful nation in Women's World Cup history, the pain of an early exit in the 2016 Olympics still lingered in the air. Back in Rio, it was Sweden that ended the USWNT's fight for the gold, keeping the U.S. off the podium for the first time in history. Both Sweden and the U.S. enter the final match of the group stage with six...

    PARIS — It’s been a major talking point ever since the Women’s World Cup draw back in December. If the United States wins its first-round group here in France, and the host nation tops their own foursome, the consensus best two teams in the competition could meet in a do-or-die quarterfinal later this month in the City of Light. The possibility of such an encounter well before the final has prompted many to wonder if the French and American teams might strategically opt to not go all-out in the group stage, perhaps setting up an easier path to the July...

    Domination. There was no other way to describe the U.S. defeating Thailand on Tuesday night to kick off their Women’s World Cup title defense. The Americans poured on the goals and defeated Thailand 13-0 – the biggest blowout in the tournament’s history. Alex Morgan delivered five goals in the match, which was tied for the most in Women’s World Cup history with fellow American Michelle Akers who did it in 1999 against Chinese Taipei.

    REIMS, France — The U.S. and Thailand will be the last two teams to make their 2019 Women's World Cup debuts when they meet here on Tuesday (3 p.m. ET, FOX, Telemundo), and you could tell on Monday that U.S. star Alex Morgan has been ready to start for a while now. “We’re feeling quite left out that we’re the last ones,” she joked at a loose pregame press conference with coach Jill Ellis (who for her part showed off some impressive French language skills). The defending champion Americans didn’t appear to be overlooking Thailand—a wise call, considering 2011 champ...

    Nearly one million tickets have been sold for the Women’s World Cup before the start of the tournament on Friday, organisers say. In the biggest and – Fifa, football’s governing body, hopes – the best Women’s World Cup yet, France play South Korea at the Parc des Princes in the first of 52 games. The host nation hopes to emulate the success of the men’s team in Russia last year and make history by becoming first country to hold both World Cups at the same time. Among the 24 teams taking part, France are narrow favourites to win the tournament,...
