LYON , France – Jill Ellis’ toughest choices ahead of this World Cup revolved around whether to pick players for now or players for the future. In Rose Lavelle, she got both.Lavelle capped off her breakout tournament in a fashion she could hardly have imagined. Her speedy forward run and fierce left-foot strike in the second half effectively clinched the United States the title – Netherlands never looked like it could overhaul a 2-0 deficit, and didn’t.When it came time for the event’s individual accolades to be doled out, Lavelle ended up with the Bronze Ball, afforded to the third-best player of the tournament, behind teammate Megan Rapinoe and England’s Lucy Bronze.Article continues below ...Lavelle is 24 years old but looks younger and is the smallest and slightest member of the roster. But she’s a gamechanger and one the Americans have come to rely upon. She’s not the finished product, and still makes some mistakes in possession TheTopSoccer , but she is capable of breaking down a defense with her smarts and swift feet in a way no other player on the team can.“I agree that she is for now and for the future,” defender Becky Sauerbrunn told me. “I can’t speak highly enough of Rose, on and off the field. She is just able to do things that not a lot of women’s soccer players are able to. She can get herself out of really crazy pressure, she can create space and with that beautiful left foot, she can really hit some bombs. The national team is in good hands with her on it.”Outside of Rapinoe and Alex Morgan, the squad isn’t filled with household names but the free-flowing, enterprising way Lavelle plays may give her a chance to join those crossover ranks in the future.The U.S. program has been built on consistency and benefitted from some players whose careers have enjoyed extreme longevity. Yet with 12 players on the roster 30 or older Cheap Dortmund Soccer Team Uniform , you need fresh blood sooner or later, especially if there is to be no noticeable drop off in productivity. Lavelle brought an energy and variety to this squad that proved pivotal.“This group is so deep and so amazing and then we just filter through these new little superstars like Rose every now and again,” Rapinoe said. “First World Cup, that is incredible. Absolutely insane.”Lavelle is interesting and quirky, with a dry and goofy sense of humor that endears her to her teammates. However, her ability is no laughing matter. She starred against England in the semifinal and was even better on Sunday.“I feel like I gained a lot of experience and the players around me worked really hard to make me look good,” Lavelle said. “It is easy to perform when you have people like that alongside you.“The mentality of this team is that everyone has each other’s back. Whether you are having a good game or an awful game you know that someone is going to be running back , or covering for you after a mistake, and when you have that kind of support it makes you extra confident.”Lavelle was followed in France by a small collection of friends and family, led by her father Marty and mother Janet, who have proven to be among the most popular members of the American traveling support brigade.Marty Lavelle enjoys a social beer, a game of foosball and the opportunity, in the most heartwarming fatherly-pride kind of way, to tell people how darned good his daughter is. Over a beer at a Lyon hotel this week Cheap Inter Milan Soccer Team Uniform , he told a journalist he didn’t think there was another player in women’s soccer who had the skills and ability of his daughter.It is the kind of thing that dads say (right?) because they are supposed to– and in some cases, you’d just put it down to that.Except that with the Lavelles and their newly-crowned world champion daughter, if it’s not true already, it’s certainly heading in that direction. ZURICH (AP) — FIFA has hired a former Champions League marketing executive to run its commercial department.The governing body said Monday it recruited Simon Thomas as chief commercial officer to replace Philippe Le Floc’h, who oversaw World Cup sponsor sales since 2016.Thomas has been CEO of Switzerland-based agency TEAM Marketing, which has exclusive rights from UEFA to sell Champions League broadcast and sponsorship deals.His move to FIFA reunites a working relationship with FIFA president Gianni Infantino. Thomas’ two-year spell as TEAM CEO was during Infantino’s six-year stint as UEFA general secretary.Thomas’ career includes spells working for Nike in Australia and with the local organizing committee in Sydney ahead of the 2000 Olympics. He was also global head of sport for the international Fox Sports Channel.FIFA said Le Floc’h, also a former UEFA executive , chose to leave for personal reasons and will continue his career in Asia.Thomas will be expected to shape a commercial strategy for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. FIFA currently has eight 2022 sponsors in the top two tiers, which have typically included 12 to 14 deals. No third-tier sponsors have yet been signed.FIFA has also considered creating a separate, stand-alone strategy for the 2023 edition of the Women’s World Cup.
