Jill Ellis: US women's head coach takes charge of final game

US women's soccer coach Jill Ellis preps for last game

Jill Ellis says it is for other people to determine what her legacy is after she bowed out as head coach of the United States women's team.

Both goals came in rapid succession.

Ellis, who took charge in 2014, led the side to two World Cup final victories, most recently in France earlier this year.

The 53-year-old, Portsmouth-born coach has stepped down after changing into exclusively the second to win consecutive World Cups, male or feminine, and the primary within the girls's sport.

South Korea, ranked 20th in the world, opened the scoring on Ji's goal then held on for the draw despite some furious pressure by the mighty Americans in the final minutes of stoppage time in front of a crowd of 33,020 at Soldier Field in Chicago.

Rick and Morty season 4 gets a trailer and release date!
Thanks to a first trailer for Season 4, however, we know that the next batch of episodes will start to arrive on Sunday, Nov. 10. More madcap adventures are on the way for the duo, with Rick floating in a hoverchair eating while Morty free-climbs a cliff.

A successor to Ellis has not been named with less than a year remaining before the next Summer Olympics at Japan.

The United States almost gave Ellis the victory that was expected, but a goal from Lloyd in stoppage time was nullified by an offside call, and another stoppage-time attempt from Mallory Pugh hit off the crossbar.

Just a year after being appointed, in 2015, Ellis helped the U.S. to their first World Cup victory in 16 years.

Lloyd's goal in the 37th minute was her team-leading 13th this year. Jessica McDonald also clanked a header off the right post in the 83rd minute. That was Ellis's 106th victory as coach and saw her surpass Tony DiCicco for most at the helm of the USA women's team. The U.S. also played South Korea last Thursday. The next match for the Americans will be against Sweden on November 7th in Columbus, Ohio.
