Singapore: The Football Association of Singapore named Bernd Stange the new coach of the national team for two years.

The association Wednesday said Stange`s ‘illustrious coaching career includes leading Belarus during the UEFA Euro 2012 qualifying campaign where they defeated France in an away qualifier’. He led Belarus to a FIFA ranking of 36th in 2011 from 90th in 2008 with his remarkable achievements including victories over the Netherlands as well as draws against traditional powerhouses Germany and Argentina.

Stange used to be the coach of the former East Germany. He was the coach of Iraq from 2002 to 2004 also. The 65-year-old German took over from Raddy Avramovic, who has led Singapore to several wins in southeast Asia.
