Dooley seventh American to coach foreign national team
[MAKING A LIST] Thomas Dooley became just the seventh American and first former U.S. international to coach a foreign
national team when he was confirmed to take over as the head coach of the Philippines national team.
The German-American, who played for the USA at the 1994 and 1998 World Cups, is 52. He
takes over the Azkals for the AFC Challenge Cup in May in the Maldives.
"We're serious with the preparation for the AFC Challenge Cup," Philippine Football Federation president Mariano Araneta told the national team's official website.
Dooley, the U.S. captain in 1998, had been announced as the pick a week ago, but his deal was
not finalized until Friday.
