Herve Renard has been confirmed as the new France women’s head coach until 2024 following his resignation from Saudi Arabia’s men’s team.
The Frenchman replaces Corinne Diacre, sacked on 9 March after several players said they would no longer represent the country under her leadership.
Renard, 54, requested his contract with the Saudi Arabian Football Federation (SAFF) be terminated on Tuesday.
The Women’s World Cup will take place from 20 July to 20 August.
Renard has won the Africa Cup of Nations as head coach with both Zambia and Ivory Coast, becoming the first person to lead different countries to the AFCON title.
