Wim Rijsbergen has been named the new head coach of Trinidad and Tobago, replacing outgoing boss Leo Beenhakker.

Rijsbergen was Beenhakker's assistant at this summer's World Cup, which saw Trinidad exit in the group stages on their tournament debut.

Rijsbergen, who played for Holland at the 1974 World Cup, will be assisted by Anton Corneal and Jan Van Deinsen.

Beenhakker is set to take over as the new Poland boss but will remain a technical advisor to the Soca Warriors.

"The Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation remains highly appreciative towards Mr Beenhakker for his services towards the uplifting of the country's football and for his guiding of the team to the 2006 World Cup Finals in Germany," said a statement on the official website.

"We also wish him the very best in his new role with the Polish FA."
