Arnold takes temporary charge of Australia

MELBOURNE, July 21 (Reuters) - Assistant coach Graham Arnold will take interim charge of the Australian national team for the next two Asian Cup qualifying matches, Football Federation Australia said on Friday.

Arnold, who was assistant to coach Guus Hiddink during the World Cup finals in Germany, will take charge of the Socceroos for the matches against Kuwait in Sydney on August 16 and Lebanon in Adelaide on August 31.

Dutchman Hiddink left his post to take up the coaching position with the Russian federation after Australia were eliminated in the second round by eventual champions Italy.

FFA, who said Arnold's appointment would assist continuity, made no comment on its search for a full-time successor to Hiddink.
