U.S. WOMEN'S NATIONAL TEAM COACH JILL ELLIS WALKING INTO NEWS CONFERENCE 2.

(SOUNDBITE)(English) U.S. WOMEN'S NATIONAL TEAM COACH JILL ELLIS AFTER BEING ASKED WHAT SHE'S PROUD OF DURING HER TIME AS COACH, SAYING: "Well I said to the players yesterday, you know when we met, it's, you always think about medals and matches as it relates to this team, this team is built to win, it's supposed to win, expected to win, but it's more than that, and I think for me, you know just the moments that I said to them yesterday, the moments that truly make you feel, those are the moments that you remember.

You know it was seeing the video of Samy (Samantha) Mewis's parents celebrating, it was, you know, seeing Carli (Lloyd) score in her fourth World Cup, like those are really special moments, so it's not just the, all of it together is amazing but I think touching those little moments where you connect to people and you see joy, I mean, you know I said to them yesterday, sometimes part of this process is hard and it's, but that's, you know, that's the way the crest and the trough go together to make it and that's what I think this journey's been, but you know truly I'm proud of where we are and what we're doing and I feel like the team has continued to evolve." 3.

(SOUNDBITE)(English) U.S. WOMEN'S NATIONAL TEAM COACH JILL ELLIS AFTER BEING ASKED WHAT SHE THINKS OF WOMEN'S WORLD CUP BEING INCREASED TO 32 TEAMS, SAYING: "You know I think I was, I was ecstatic that they've increased the number of participants, I think that's a big step, I think you know with that you sometimes will get, you know, lopsided scores in terms of teams growing but I think when you just see the velocity at which the women's game has grown over the last four years in terms of 2015 to 2019 to now so I think that's great.

I think, you know, FIFA seems, you know they want to increase, I think it was a good, not lesson, I think it was a real eye opener to them just to see how marketable, how fan friendly, how exciting the women's game is in terms of being able to, you know, promote it and being able to gain sponsorship so I think overall I think that the World Cup did exactly what I was hoping for it to do in terms of selling our sport to more people, reaching more people and I think FIFA's gonna take note of that and in terms of hope yeah I mean you know everyone's batting around the money, yeah you want to see growth in that department as well for sure." STORY: Jill Ellis, who announced she will soon step down as coach of the U.S. women's national soccer team, said Friday (August 2) she's proud of where the squad is and where women's soccer is after the recent World Cup.

The 52-year-old, who steered the U.S. to a record-extending fourth World Cup title in France earlier this month, is with her team in Calfornia for a 'Victory Tour' friendly against Ireland this weekend.

Speaking to reporters at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Ellis said it was the little moments with her players that she'll most remember rather than all the "medals and matches".

She added that she was "ecstatic" over FIFA's recent decision to move to a 32 team field for the 2023 Women's World Cup and even if there were some lopsided matches it was important to grow the game.
