PASADENA Cheap Real Madrid Soccer Team Uniform , Calif. (AP) — Jill Ellis likened her tenure in charge of the U.S. women’s national team to an amusement park ride. She also compared it to a tumultuous ride on a five-year wave.The most successful head coach in program history seems quite content to get off this merry-go-round on her own terms.Ellis was upbeat Friday when she joined her players at the Rose Bowl for their first workout ahead of a five-game exhibition Victory Tour designed to bring the World Cup winners to their legions of domestic fans. The tour got a slight damper Tuesday when Ellis announced she will step down at its conclusion.Before her team’s first game since her decision, the only two-time Women’s World Cup-winning coach expressed pride in her work and optimism for the future without her, starting with the Tokyo Olympics next year.But more than anything else, Ellis exuded calm about her decision to walk away on top.“When I took the job … it was the beginning of a cycle, and now I feel like this is the end of a cycle,” Ellis said. “I know the Olympics is very close, but that begins another cycle, if that makes sense. I think the timing is now. … I mean, 5 1/2 years is kind of a long time in this job, which has been great and such a privilege. But I didn’t give much consideration to coaching next year.”Ellis likely could have stayed on through Tokyo, but decided to give a head start to her successor. She had a few words of advice for whoever steps into her large shoes.“It’s a roller coaster. Put your seatbelt on www.thetopsoccer.com/club-team-kit/tottenham-hotspur ,” Ellis said with a grin. “Enjoy the ride, because you’re going to expect highs and lows. It’s the wave analogy. It’s the trough and the crest. You can’t have a beautiful ocean without both of those. You can’t have this journey without all the highs and lows.”The 52-year-old Ellis lost exactly seven of her 127 games since May 2014, winning eight tournaments and half of the nation’s four World Cup titles. When her team raised the trophy last month in France, the Americans reaffirmed their status as the world’s dominant program.“Well, I’m selfishly sad,” World Cup hero Rose Lavelle said. “I’ve really enjoyed having her as a coach. I feel like I’ve grown so much the past three years, and I’m sad, but I’m happy she went out on top and now has some time with her family to enjoy.”No coach can match Ellis’ international accomplishments, yet she still faced near-constant scrutiny for her tactics, lineup decisions and substitution patterns — even from former and current players for a team that never lost a game at two World Cups.Megan Rapinoe said she “wasn’t super surprised” by Ellis’ decision.“It’s obviously a very difficult job to have, and to be able to go out on top is obviously a nice way to go Cheap Argentina Soccer Team Uniform ,” the Golden Ball winner added.Christen Press praised Ellis for her ability to create a structured training environment similar to the stability of a men’s club team — a difficult feat given the unstable, traveling nature of national teams.“It’s hard for me to imagine that any program in any sport would have this level of meticulous detail and control,” Press said. “I think Jill was able to do that because she was in the system before she was the head coach. We’re taking everything that we do on the road, so every single training facility is different. When you have a meeting is different. What you’re eating is different. It’s the head coach’s job to oversee that, and it was such a seamless thing for us. We could really focus.”After this tour ends Oct. 6 in Chicago, Ellis will spend at least the next year working for U.S. Soccer as an ambassador. That hasn’t stopped widespread speculation about her long-term plans, but Ellis isn’t sharing in it.“I haven’t given any thought to my future, I really haven’t,” Ellis said. “I just felt the timing was right. The timing is right for whoever the new coach is. The timing was right for me on a personal level with my family. I’m going to still be working in a capacity for a while for U.S. Soccer, so I haven’t even thought about coaching another team at this point. “The U.S. women are opening the tour with the team’s fifth-ever game at the famed Rose Bowl, where they won the World Cup in 1999 on Brandi Chastain’s penalty shot. A statue of Chastain celebrating her goal was dedicated outside the stadium last month.Rapinoe and Alex Morgan won’t play in the tour opener at the Rose Bowl while they recover from minor injuries. MILAN (AP) — The transfer window in the Italian league will close on Sept. 2. Here’s the pick of the signings so far ahead of the season which starts this weekend:ROMELU LUKAKU (Inter Milan)The Belgium forward will add some much-needed firepower to an Inter Milan team that managed only 57 league goals last season — well below the three teams that finished above it in Serie A.Inter’s chief goal scorer www.thetopsoccer.com , Mauro Icardi, was stripped of the captaincy and dropped from the squad midway through the season. He was expected to leave in the offseason but has yet to be sold.Lukaku, who was signed from Manchester United for around 65 million euros ($73 million) plus 13 million euros ($15 million) in bonuses, has been given Icardi’s No. 9 jersey,Lukaku scored 42 times in 96 matches for United after joining from Everton in 2017.The 26-year-old Lukaku is Belgium’s top goal-scorer with 48 goals in 81 games. He helped the team to third place at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.MARIO BALOTELLI (Brescia)The newly promoted side pulled off perhaps one of the biggest coups of the season, bringing Mario Balotelli back home.Balotelli joined his hometown club on a free transfer after his contract with Marseille expired, returning to Serie A after an absence of three years.The Italy forward was born in Palermo but moved to Brescia at the age of two and his adoptive family still lives there, although his father died in 2015.Balotelli’s last spell in Italy in 2016-16 was a miserable one as he struggled with injury and scored only once in a season-long loan at AC Milan. He returned to Liverpool in 2016 and moved immediately to France, resurrecting his career at Nice and Marseille.The 29-year-old Balotelli, with his physique, technical ability www.thetopsoccer.com/national-team-kit/belgium , and qualities as a finisher, is one of the world’s best strikers but his on-the-field achievements have often been overshadowed by his antics off the field.He also hopes to play for Italy again, ahead of next year’s European Championship.Balotelli will partner Serie B top goalscorer Alfredo Donnarumma and with both being served by exciting teenage midfielder Sandro Tonali — who has been likened to Andrea Pirlo — Brescia could get the goals it needs to prevent it from going straight back down.MATTHIJS DE LIGT (Juventus)If you can’t beat them, buy them. That appears to be Juventus’ philosophy as it continues its quest for the Champions League title.De Ligt scored the goal that eliminated Juventus from the Champions League in April as he captained Ajax to the semifinals. A few months later, Juventus signed the Netherlands defender.De Ligt, who turned 20 this month, became the most expensive defender in Serie A history when he completed a 75 million euros ($85 million) transfer from Ajax.Strong on the ground and in the air, De Ligt scored twice with headers in the Champions League last season — with only Cristiano Ronaldo (four) managing more.ISMAEL BENNACER (AC Milan)The midfielder’s profile rose sharply after he was named player of the tournament at the recent Africa Cup of Nations, where he helped Algeria win the title for the first time in 29 years.However, the 21-year-old Bennacer had already committed himself to joining AC Milan from Empoli for a fee of around 16 million euros ($18 million).Bennacer joined Empoli in 2017 from Arsenal following a loan spell at Ligue 2 side Tours, and impressed in Serie A last season despite his club’s relegation.FRANCK RIBERY (Fiorentina)The veteran Frenchman could be a key piece to the club’s aims for a renaissance under its new American ownership.Ribery was a free agent after 12 seasons with Bayern Munich Cheap Brazil Soccer Team Uniform , which included a Champions League title in 2013.The 36-year-old winger will link with midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng, who also joined Fiorentina in the offseason.Fiorentina was bought by cable television businessman Rocco Commisso in June after finishing 16th in Serie A last season, narrowly avoiding relegation.Commisso, who also owns the New York Cosmos, reportedly paid about 160 million euros ($181 million).
