REUTERS: Interim England women coach Hege Riise will take charge of Britain's women's team at this year's Tokyo Olympics, the Football Association (FA) said on Wednesday.

"We could not have been more impressed with the impact that Hege and Rhian (Wilkinson) have had in such a short space of time with England Women, particularly during our recent international camp at St. George’s Park," Sue Campbell, the FA’s director of women’s football, said in a statement,

"I am in no doubt that their Olympic experience and management expertise will provide the squad with the best possible opportunity to succeed at the Tokyo Games."
