Former Singapore coach Jan Poulsen has been
appointed to lead Armenia in the 2010 FIFA World Cup’
qualifiers, the Armenian FA said on Thursday.

The much-travelled Dane, who also coached Jordan
during last year’s U-20 FIFA World Cup, replaces
Briton Tom Jones, who was sacked following Armenia’s
poor UEFA EURO 2008 qualifying campaign.

Jones took over as Armenia’s caretaker coach midway
through last year after the death of fellow Briton Ian
Porterfield.

Armenia have been drawn in European Group 5 for the
2010 FIFA World Cup qualifiers along with Spain,
Turkey, Belgium, Bosnia and Estonia.
