Vladko Antonovski has resigned as head coach of the US Women’s National Team. The selection lord did it after a very disappointing exit from the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, in which things went wrong in the last eight after penalties. Sarina Weikman (National Coach England) is named as successor, America need not call.
This has been clarified by the director of the English Football Association (FA) Mark Bullingham. In an interview Daily Mail He rejected the departure of the Dutch coach who won the World Cup final after winning the European Championship. “We’ve read a lot of rumours, but he’s under contract until 2025 and he’s fine,” Bullingham said. According to the director, a new contract for Wikeman will be discussed after the match.

Bullingham has not even ruled out Sarina Wickman becoming the next national coach of the men’s team if Gareth Southgate leaves the post. “But I think it’s a shame for the Lions to take it a step further. We think Sarina is doing a great job. She can achieve anything she wants in football and is definitely a force to be reckoned with.
ESPN confirmed those words, with Southgate still mulling an exit after the disappointing World Cup in Qatar, with the FA more seriously considering appointing Wickman. It will be the first time in history that a woman has taken over as the national coach of the men’s team and it will be historic. “There is often talk about which person is best suited to coach England. But we like to say ‘any person'”, Bullingham explained.
Wykeman could write history with the England Women’s team next Sunday as she can lift the Women’s World Cup title for the first time. With Spain as their opponents in the World Cup final, they will be looking to avenge their elimination of the Netherlands.
