Tom Sermanni

This really is a fascinating story to me. Tom Sermanni was widely seen as a number one candidate for the US job. Why?
Lets not forget that Sermanni led Australia won 1 out of 4 matches in China!!!
Once again, 1 out of 4 matches.
... and they conceded nearly 2 goals per match... and it was Lisa De Vanna's individual, late heroics against Norway and Canada that even allowed Australia to progress out of group play.
It could all easily have been 1 win, 2 losses and out.
Remember 1 win out of 4.
It really makes you wonder about Sunil...

"Australian women's coach Tom Sermanni has knocked back a rich and prestigious job in charge of the US team to remain at the helm of the Matildas for another five years.
The US federation headhunted the 53-year-old Scottish-born coach after the World Cup in China but, after weeks of soul-searching, has opted to stay in Australia. Sermanni, named Asian Coach of the Year in the wake of the Matildas' fairytale run to the World Cup quarter-finals, will now guide them through to the 2012 Olympics."
