KNOXVILLE, TN. – Tennessee assistant coach Becky Edwards is assistant coach of the USA U-20 women’s national youth team at the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Costa Rica under head coach Tracey Kevins.

Edwards joined the U-20 coaching staff in June and traveled to France for the 2022 Sud Ladies Cup, where the USA went unbeaten against France, Mexico and the Netherlands to take the title home.

The USA are currently in the group stage of the World Cup and won their opener against Ghana 3-0 on Thursday. The squad will be back in action against the Netherlands on Sunday at 7pm ET (FS1). When the teams met in June, they played to a 2-2 draw. USA’s final group stage game will be played against Japan on Wednesday, August 17 (FS2) at 19:00 ET.

“We’re very happy for Becky and the entire US team who are trying to bring a World Cup home from Costa Rica,” said the Tennessee head coach Joe Kirt. “It’s an incredible opportunity for Becky to win a second U-20 World Cup, this time as part of the coaching staff. We are excited to have her join us later this month but know she has some work to do in Costa Rica at the moment.”

After the group stage, the top two places in each group advance to the quarter-finals, which will be played on Saturday 20th August and Sunday 21st August. The winners of these games advance to the semi-finals on Thursday 25 August. The championship and third place match will take place on Sunday 28th August. The USA are one of four sides to have qualified for every FIFA WWC at U-20 level, alongside three-time world champions Germany, Brazil and Nigeria.
