New Delhi, Jun15: Former Dutch international Wim Koevermans, who was a member of the squad that won the 1998 European Championship, has been named India's new national football coach.



The All India Football Federation made the announcement at a press conference on Friday.

Koevermans, 51, takes over from Indian coaches Armando Colaco and Savio Medeira, who held the job after Englishman Bob Houghton's stint ended more than a year ago.

Koevermans, who has previously coached Dutch clubs including N.E.C. Nijmegen, R.B.C. Roosendaal and M.V.V. Maastricht, has been given an initial contract of two years.

India is currently ranked 164th in the world.
