USWNT Coach, Vlatko Andonovski Steps Down After Devastating World Cup Loss

USWNT Coach, Vlatko Andonovski Steps Down After Devastating World Cup Loss

The USWNT head coach, Vlatko Andonovski would be stepping down after the United States were knocked out of the 2023 Women’s World Cup in the round of 16.

Speaking of the decision, U.S. Soccer Sporting Director Matt Crocker said: 

“All of us at U.S. Soccer thank Vlatko for his dedication to our Women’s National Team over the past four years.”

“Vlatko worked tirelessly for this team and has been a strong and positive leader for our women’s program. We’re grateful for everything he has contributed to U.S. Soccer and know he has a bright future in the sport.”

Twila Kilgore would be the interim head coach, as the association searches for Vlatko’s replacement. 

Kilgore served as an assistant coach for the USWNT for the past year and a half.

Sweden on Aug. 6 defeated the U.S. women 5-4 on penalties in the round of 16, knocking them from the competition.

Vlatko was named head coach of the women’s national team in October 2019. He was the ninth head coach of the team in its 38-year history.

Andonovski replaced Jill Ellis as head of the team. Ellis announced she would step down after the USWNT won the last World Cup, which was held in 2019. 

Under Andonovski, the team won the bronze medal at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics.
