Hege Riise is now England Women’s interim manager after Phil Neville left the role to join David Beckham’s Inter Miami.
Riise will be assisted by ex-Canadian international Rhian Wilkinson and Kay Cossington, having previously worked as assistant manager of the successful USA women’s national team and following a playing career in which she made 188 appearances for Norway, the most in the country’s history for both men and women.
She will take charge of the Lionesses until Sarina Wiegman, the current boss of the Netherlands, comes in to take the job on a full-time basis in September.
Riise said: “I’m excited about the opportunity I’ve been given to work with England Women.
“This is a proud and ambitious team that I look forward to working with and I am confident of making a positive impact when I meet up with the squad in February.”
FA Director of Women’s Football, Baroness Sue Campbell said: “I am delighted to welcome Hege Riise and Rhian Wilkinson to the England coaching team, having had positive discussions with them in recent weeks.”
