Hrubesch Named Interim Coach of Germany Women’s Soccer Team

BERLIN – Former Germany international Horst Hrubesch is stepping in as interim head coach of the women’s national team after the dismissal of coach Steffi Jones, the German soccer association (DFB) announced Tuesday.

Hrubesch, a former Germany forward in the 1980s, led the men’s under-21 Olympic team to a silver medal at the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro.

“I’m very thankful that Horst Hrubesch is willing to help us out. We all know how important qualifying for the World Cup is in terms of the development of women’s football,” said DFB vice president of women’s soccer, Hannelore Ratzeburg.

Hrubesch will lead the women’s team in the upcoming two games against the Czech Republic and Slovenia on April 7 and 10, respectively, according to the DFB statement.

Ex-coach Jones, who appeared in 111 games for the national team as a player, was unable to help Germany defend its European Championship title last summer after being eliminated from the quarterfinals.

DFB President Reinhard Grindel thanked Jones for her efforts with the national team, adding “She is and will remain a defining face of women’s football in Germany and I would be delighted if she stayed at the DFB in some other role in the women’s game.”

In order to qualify for the World Cup, Germany needs to win the next second leg match against Iceland, after losing the first leg 2-3 at home on Oct. 20.
