New Delhi, May 15 (PTI) Croatian World Cupper Igor Stimac was Wednesday appointed head coach of the Indian football team for a two-year term.

The national team has been without a coach since the departure of Stephen Constantine in January, following the creditable show at the AFC Asian Cup.

The appointment was made by the AIFF's executive committee.

The 51-year-old Stimac, who was part of Croatia's 1998 World Cup squad that finished third in France, comes with an experience of over 18 years in coaching, structuring, and developing football and players back home, and internationally.
