Germany to hire Switzerland women's coach Voss-Tecklenburg

FRANKFURT, Germany — The German soccer federation says it has hired Switzerland coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg to take over the women's national team after the 2019 World Cup qualifying program.

The German federation says Voss-Tecklenburg, a former Germany international, has a contract through the 2021 European Championship.

Interim coach Horst Hrubesch will lead the team through two remaining qualifying games in September.

Both Germany and the unbeaten Swiss lead their qualifying groups for the 2019 tournament in France. Germany could be overtaken by Iceland before they play again on Sept. 1.

In six years with Switzerland, Voss-Tecklenburg led the team to its first World Cup in 2015.

The Swiss soccer federation praised Germany for its conduct in talks, and says they agreed to a friendly between their men's national teams in 2020.
