Several surprises in the formation of women’s Italy for the match against Croatia this afternoon valid for the qualifications for the 2023 World Cup. The coach Bertolini in fact deploys a four-man defense with one between Salvai and Gama who will act as right-back, while Boattin will play on the opposite lane. A defense that, however, could also become three, also considering the one-pointed module of the slaves, with the advancement of the latter in midfield and the enlargement of Cernoia on the wing. The midfield will be all black and white with Caruso and Rosucci alongside the number 21. Forward space for the classic trident with Bonansea and Girelli flanked by Giacinti.
In Croatia it will be Glibo to act as the only striker in a 5-4-1 where the Veronese Jelencic will act as a left-handed full-back and the former Juventus player Bacic will defend the goal posts. These are the official formations of the challenge:
