Having won the FIFA Women's World Cup for the first time in Spain's history less than a month prior, the federation has been forced to make a coaching change.
Jorge Vilda, who led the Spanish women to the World Cup title and had been in charge for eight years, was sacked as head coach in early September as part of the federation's overhaul in the wake of the Luis Rubiales scandal. In Vilda's place, the Spanish football federation (RFEF) appointed assistant Montse Tome as his successor.
Tome's hire is a historic one, making her the first female head coach in Spanish women's football history, but questions remain over how the federation will proceed into the coming four-year cycle.
With Tome set to debut as Spain head coach against No. 1-ranked Sweden on September 22 in the UEFA Nations League, The Sporting News brings you a full breakdown of the new boss.
