Amelia Valverde (born January 14, 1987 ) is a Costa Rican soccer coach who took part in the 2015 World Cup with the Costa Rican women's national team .


From 2011, Valverde worked in changing roles for the Costa Rican Football Association , during which time she was in charge of the U-20 and senior national teams as an assistant coach. On January 12, 2015, she moved up as the successor to Uruguayan Garabet Avedissian as head coach of the national team, under whom they had recently qualified for the World Cup for the first time. Despite the upcoming tournament, Avedissian had surprisingly decided to accept an offer from the Puerto Rican Football Association . At the World Cup, their team got two draws in the first two group games against Spain and South Korea , so that the team was in second place in the table before the last match day. Due to a 0-1 defeat against South American champions Brazil in the last group game, the team was eliminated as the worst group third.
