        Ex-Iceland boss Heimir Hallgrímsson has been named as the new Republic of Ireland manager.

        After an eight-month search for a replacement for Stephen Kenny, Hallgrímsson has been appointed by the Football Association of Ireland (FAI). 

        Joint head coach of the Iceland side that beat England in the last 16 of the 2016 Euros, Hallgrimsson was then in sole charge of the national team when they reached the 2018 World Cup finals. 

        FAI director of football Marc Canham spoke after the unveiling of the Republic's new manager and stated that Hallgrímsson was "our number one candidate".

        "Not only does Heimir have significant experience at international level with two different countries, but crucially he also has a track record of qualifying for major international tournaments and taking teams up the Fifa world rankings," stated Canham.
