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 football association (DFB) announced on 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, reports Efe.

"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," DFB vice president of women's football Hannelore Ratzeburg said. 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.
