(ANSA) – ROME, SEPTEMBER 17 – The journey of the National Women’s team begins downhill in qualifying for the 2023 World Cup.
At the first outing of the season, Italy beat Moldova 3-0 in a remake of the match that four years ago saw the debut on the bench of the coach Milena Bertolini. At the ‘Nereo Rocco’ in Trieste, in the stadium named after the creator of the bolt, Moldova closes in their own half in an attempt to limit the damage, but Italy is good at asserting an indisputable technical supremacy and breaking through the opponent’s block already in the first half thanks to the brace of Girelli and the goal of Giacinti. On Tuesday Gama and her team mates will take the field in Karlovac (5.30 pm) to challenge Croatia, who will make their qualifying debut at Romania’s home tonight.
“We are happy because we started this new path with a win – declared Milena Bertolini immediately after the final whistle – I liked the attitude of the girls, but there is a bit of regret for having made a lot of mistakes in front of goal.
Now Croatia awaits us, which is a very physical team with good individualities. Against them we will have to be more precise and nasty in front of goal “. (ANSA).
