Megan Rapinoe has given a candid assessment of what it must be like to manage the USWNT in a new Netflix documentary on their 2023 World Cup failure.
In Netflix’s new documentary Under Pressure detailing the US’ failure at the 2023 Women’s World Cup, the attacker shared some insight on what she felt it would be like to coach the United States women’s national team at a major tournament, with boss Vlatko Andonovski coming in for significant criticism.
“I always say it’s the worst job in the world because if you do your job, then you were supposed to, and if you do one hair less, then you are gonna get lambasted for it,” she said.
The USWNT crashed out of the 2023 World Cup in stunning fashion, exiting in the round of 16 via a penalty shootout loss to Sweden. It was the earliest exit from the biggest stage ever for the group, with Andonovski resigning after amid criticism over his tactics and personnel choice.
The USWNT legend retired after the end of the NWSL season where, heartbreakingly, she tore her Achilles in the championship game just three minutes into the match. She will be undergoing rehabilitation on the injury over the coming year, before deciding what’s next.
