What They're Saying: Vlatko Andonovski

"At this point, the most important thing is that she enjoys the game, that she enjoys her club environment because we don’t want to put too much pressure on her. She’s a young player, a talented player, a good player and all she needs to do is just to enjoy the game.”

-- USWNT coach Vlatko Andonovski on 18-year-old Alyssa Thompson, whom he did not call up for the April friendlies against Ireland. He said Thompson, who scored in her NWSL debut for hometown Angel City FC before a sell-out crowd on Sunday, has the potential to make the USA's World Cup squad, and his decision to bring her into camp last fall was because he wanted her to get that experience with the national team if she does earn a roster spot for the World Cup.
