England football manager Phil Neville has dismissed rumors that he has had any connections to the US women's national team. The news came at a time when Jill Ellis, the head coach of the US soccer squad who led the team to victory during two World Cups, announced plans to step down.

The Daily Mail, a daily newspaper in the United Kingdom announced that Neville may now be looking for Ellis' job. This happened only slightly earlier before England played against Norway and defeated the Scandinavians 2-1.

Not surprisingly, these rumors were accepted as a plausible development both for Neville's career as well as the future of U.S. women's soccer in the United States. With the United States' women's soccer team so high on the Fifa world rankings, the stakes for the team will be high. Meanwhile, Ellis is named as one of the contenders for Fifa's women's coach of the year award along with Dutch counterpart Sarina Wiegman.

England's women's team is part of the Fifa standings even though the team has a long way to go still until it consolidates its power at the top. Interestingly, though, Neville didn't dismiss his own ambitions about the U.S. Team.

Rather, he just said for BBC Sport that there had been no interest on the part of the American squad, or to put this way nobody had contacted him to invite him to negotiate. Neville has quite a bit to sort out at home as well.

He is still the coach for the national English women's soccer team and that puts him tied to the job until at least 2021 when his contract expires. On his immediate plans, however, is his desire to put England on top of the 2020 Olympics. He even said so:

"My focus is on winning us a gold medal in the Olympics and beyond that. It's flattering because it means you are doing a good job, but my focus is England."

Neville similarly said that he was rather taken aback by people who constantly asked him what his next move would be. While Neville understood that each career had a trajectory, he has responded to such questions tersely that there is hardly a better job than the one he had at the moment.

There are many reasons behind this decision as well. Phil is given a lot of leeway when it comes to the national team, and this is backed by the country's soccer body. This translates into complete freedom of training the team any way he sees fit.

"I'm committed to the three-year project. I don't see another job that would give me what I'm in now. As long as the FA back me the way they've backed me, and the players show the same kind of thirst for learning, then I'll be here for the three years."

Meanwhile, the coming months will also be important for the U.S. Women's soccer team. After winning convincingly in Paris, France, the team needs to build on this success further. The stakes are high for U.S. soccer players, especially when people are now beginning to think that women should be paid the same money as men.

There has been a lot of pressure on FIFA to raise the Women's World Cup prize pool to which the world's governing body for football has responded positively.

Pulisic admits he's not one for big statements like the LA Galaxy star.

Pulisic - with the USA for a friendly against Mexico on Saturday - is more of a wallflower when it comes to comparing himself against other players.

Asked whether he had the edge on Napoli's Mexico forward Hirving Lozano, Pulisic replied: "I'm not going to give you like an Ibra answer here!

"I'll never be comfortable. I don't like being in front of cameras. I'm still getting used to it, I guess."

Gerrard first joined the club at the age of nine and played for 17 years in the Liverpool first team before leaving for American club LA Galaxy in 2015.

But, according to Owen in his book 'Reboot - My Life, My Time', Liverpool wanted Gerrard to leave sooner.

He writes: "In Steven's case, I severely doubt whether he really wanted to go and play in the States in 2015. I've heard that the club wanted him out two years prior to when he actually left.

"I'm sure he would rather have wound his career down at Liverpool, playing increasingly fewer games until he reached a point where he could be integrated into the coaching staff.

"This only happened later in his case. But instead, because he'd become so symbolic and so powerful, I believe he was forced out in the short term. Steven was bigger than the club."

Former United striker Ibrahimovic joked he is "ready" to help his old team out if they are in need of striking reinforcement and said - despite being 37 - he could still play in the Premier League.

Asked about the Swedish striker's comments, Solskjaer said: "If he was 28 and not 38 next month, it's a big difference, but Zlatan has had a great time here and of course he is still doing well but he was just unfortunate that he got his injury when he got it here.

"Who knows, he's got my number. He never rented my house but he was looking at it.

"If it's serious I will always speak to Zlatan."

Asked to clarify if he was being serious, he said: "I don't think that'll happen, no. I think he's had his time at the club, he's had a fantastic career at the club."

"I speak with him," Ibrahimovic said. "A lot of advice I give - but nothing I share with you!"

He also had stints with Roma in Italy and LA Galaxy in the United States.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Cole said: "After hard consideration, it's time to hang my boots up and look towards my next chapter, which will hopefully be coaching."

The Swedish is currently inviting controversy at LA Galaxy.

Moggi, who signed Ibra for Juve, told Firenzeviola.it: "Zlatan has a biological physique that allows him to perform at his best even at his age, just like Cristiano Ronaldo.

"He is sowing victories everywhere, even in America. Certainly it will not be Serie A, but goals must be scored wherever you go to play and if he came to Fiorentina also for the young he would be fantastic because they could perhaps learn something more from him that not even the coach is able to give.

"Ibra also inspires fear in everyone even now, but it is obvious that he is no longer the player he was at my time."
