China appoint manager Marcello Lippi in latest step to becoming football superpower

China has hired World Cup-winning coach Marcello Lippi to head its national football team. 

The national football association officially announced the appointment of 68-year-old Lippi on Saturday. 

Marcelo Lippi guided Italy to World Cup glory in 2006 when his side edged out France on penalties after a 1-1 draw in regulation time. 

It is the latest move by China in a national push to become a force in world football. 

Lippi replaces Gao Hongbo, who resigned after China's October 11 loss to Uzbekistan.
