The Royal Spanish Football Federation have dispensed with the services of Jorge Vilda and appointed Montse Tomé as head coach.

Tome had been Vilda’s assistant since 2018, in which time the RFER said ‘she established herself as a fundamental piece in the growth of the national team’.

She is a former Spanish international, who played for Oviedo, Levante and Barcelona, winning two league titles and one cup with the latter.

Her first test comes this month with UEFA Women’s Nations League ties against Sweden and Switzerland in Córdoba.
