ROME – Women's triumph fails for Italy but the defeat of measure (1-0 and for a very dubious penalty) against Brazil in the third and final round of the qualifying round of the French World Cup is painless for the girls of Milena Bertolini who go to the first round of the group. The Italians close Group C with 6 points, the same as Australia and Verdeoro but ahead of all by virtue of the better goal difference: they will return to the field on Tuesday 25 in Montpellier, facing one of the two thirds of groups A and B, Nigeria or China.
Two decidedly affordable adversaries, therefore, that could pave the way for the Italians towards the quarter-finals, a better world-wide performance achieved, however, 28 years ago. After twenty years of absence from the highest competition it would already be a success, but the girls are getting a taste for it and with the unexpected enthusiasm that football is giving rise to, they want to take advantage of the moment.
Coach Bertolini: "Go from first, I would never have thought of it" . "Too bad for the defeat, the draw would have been the fairest result. Congratulations to the girls who have stood up to Brazil. We are happy to be passed by first, I would never have thought of it ": this is what Sky Sport says to Milena Bertolini commenting on the defeat of the Italians against the national team and the passage to the first knockout round. "Now let's enjoy some rest – the Italian coach added – We need to get back on track". (source: Ansa)
