Vlatko Andonovski is officially the new head coach of the U.S. women’s national team, and the National Women’s Soccer League has unveiled a $300,000-per-team allocation initiative to attract top world talent to the league. Oh, and on the same day as the NWSL’s announcement, MVP Sam Kerr told the Chicago Red Stars that she was leaving for Europe. Buckle up, people!

The winter months won’t feature any NWSL games, but we’re sure to have a whole lot of news. Dan Lauletta is joined by The Equalizer’s social media ace, Rachael McKriger, to discuss all the latest.
