The U.S. Soccer Federation is holding a press conference at 3:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday to announce the new coach of the U.S. women's national team. The Washington Post's Steven Goff wrote on his Soccer Insider
blog on Monday that a source told him Pia Sundhage
would be the pick. The 47-year-old Swede, her country's all-time leading scorer, was most recently assistant coach of the Chinese women's national team.
Sundhage, who coached WUSA's Boston Breakers in 2003 and was an assistant coach for the Philadelphia Charge in 2001 and 2002, stated that she was interested in the job after Coach Greg Ryan
's firing following the USA's disappointing third-place finish at the 2007 Women's World Cup.
