Former Italian star to take over Canadian women’s soccer team

Posted by iamhannah on February 5, 2009

TORONTO — Former Italian international star Carolina Morace is Canada’s next women’s soccer coach.

A source confirmed Morace is to be introduced at a news conference later Thursday. Morace, 45, succeeds Even Pellerud, who stepped down last year after leading Canada to the quarter-finals of the Beijing Olympics. The Norwegian native has since taken a job as head of the women’s program with the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation.

Morace played 153 times for her country, scoring 105 goals. She is also the only woman in Europe to have coached a pro men’s team, having run Serie C side Viterbese.

She debuted for the Italian women’s national team in 1978, against Yugoslavia, at the age of just 14, and went on to captain the side.

She has also coached the Italian women’s national team and more recently served as a soccer TV analyst in Italy.
