What next for Lionesses boss Sarina Wiegman who’s linked with England men’s job
Sunday's heartbreak wasn't unfamiliar for Sarina Wiegman – four years ago, she watched as the USA celebrated their fourth World Cup win.
Less than 12 months later, and after the Dutch FA had commissioned a statue of her, Wiegman had put pen to paper on a deal with the FA. Wiegman has only added to her legacy on these shores: a win at the Euros and a World Cup final.
However, after a second World Cup final loss in as many appearances – questions have now been asked about Wiegman's future. She has admitted she has no plans to leave her current role, but there are two glaring opportunities for the Dutchwoman.
Ahead of the World Cup final, the FA announced Wiegman would be considered for a role in the men's set-up.

England's wait for a world title continues, and as the ghosts of 1966 live on, attention turns to Gareth Southgate.
Southgate has led his side in two World Cups: making it to the quarter-final and the semi-final respectively. However, his current deal only runs until the end of 2024 – enough to see him through the Euros.

FA chief executive Mark Bullingham admitted: "I think football is behind other sports in terms of lack of female coaches at the top level, and that has to change.
“Do I think Sarina could do any job in football? Yes, I do. I’m really happy with the job she’s doing and I hope she stays doing that job for a long time.
"If at some point in the future, she decides she wants to move into the men’s game, that would be a really interesting discussion but that’s for her, right?"
However, the men's game might not be the only option for Sarina, and it's hard to say no to the USA Women's side. Wiegman has been linked with the vacancy, but she's shut down the links: "I'm really enjoying my job.
"I have the impression that people still like me doing the job. I have no plans to leave. I'm staying out of [speculation regarding the USA job]. I've heard it.
"I'm with England, I'm really happy with England and I have a contract until 2025."
