It ends with a defeat at the end of the third day of Women’s Nations League dell’Italiaagainst the world champions of Spain. Soncin’s girls played in a compact and balanced way and enjoyed the chance to score a point against La Roja until the 90th minute. The Italians remain at the moment at the momentthird place in the rankings with three points, behind Sweden (which could reach 6 points with a victory against Switzerland) and Tomé Vazquez’s team.
There will still be three more games to play and the National Of Walkers and companions will be able to aim for second place, to defend League A and avoid any type of relegation, also in view of the upcoming European and World Cup qualifiers. The first place will qualify for the final four, which is important from an Olympic perspective.
Italy-Spain Women, the Italians surrender at the end
Soncin deployed a formation with two very narrow lines forming a 5-4-1 in the non-possession phase, to try to limit Spain’s great quality, which they also showed off at the World Cup. La Roja obviously played the game and created many scoring opportunities, with the Italians good and lucky to defuse them. But then in the 90th minute came the joke signed by Beautiful: the number 10 took over from the bench and put her stamp on the match. Half joy for Soncin, who doesn’t bring any points, but a lot of material to work on.
