In Vilnius, Italy achieved their fourth victory in the same number of matches. Bertolini: “The way is the right way.” On November 26 in Palermo the direct confrontation with Switzerland
Rhythm, focus and tactile, but also great plays and applause goals. Thus, the excellent performance of the women’s national team can be summed up, which in Vilnius overtakes Lithuania, achieving the fourth success in a row in world qualifying. Italy takes the field with great determination, breaking the deadlock in the 13th minute thanks to the Cernoia pearl and thus making way for the Italian goal. After the Juventus midfielder’s perfect free kick, Peroni and Giacenti scored goals in the first half, while Gama and Caruso scored 5-0 in the second half.
Poker wins are the best way to present yourself with confidence in the live match with Switzerland scheduled for Friday 26 November (5.30 pm) at Renzo Barbera in Palermo. After four challenging days with Swiss Gama and his teammates visiting Romania, two races will be won at any cost to end 2021 in strong blues and give an extra boost to the World Cup race.
“We’re happy, tonight the girls played a good game – that’s coach Melina Bertolini’s comment – these days we worked a lot on movements and speed, I asked to alternate between playing in amplitude and short-term drafting and the results are clear, even if we can score more goals. In November we have two more base games, to finish first in the group, we have to win all of them but the way is the right one.”
the match – As happened in Friday’s game at Castel di Sangro, Italy ditched the traditional 4-3-3 approach to side with the 3-4-3 that had been tried in recent weeks. But in comparison with the victory over Croatia, some interpreters change: in the goal after the elimination round, Giuliani returns, in the defense Linzini replaces Salvai, while Galli replaces the injured Rusucci. On the right side, the coach relies on the thrust of Bergamci, on the other side Bonance works, in the attack in turn from the rest of Girelli who was replaced by Peroni, driven by the first ball in blue.
In the first few minutes, it was the home team that took the lead using the ingenuity of number 10 Petravicini, who found Junošito in the area in the 2nd minute but the Lithuanian striker’s header ended up on his back. The fleeing danger shocks the Italians, ready to stimulate the outside players and give rhythm to their plays, trying to get around the fortress built by Viktoravičius with several cross passes from below. The Italian supremacy arrives in the 13th minute thanks to the usual Cernoia, who was repeated after the ban on the match with Croatia at the LFF stadium was lifted with a superb free kick ending his career at the cross columns. At 23, the “multi-level Juventus player” starts the move that leads to the doubling, providing a perfect aid for Peroni who does not give the opposing goalkeeper a chance to escape with a precise header. Melina Bertolini’s 35th minute monologue continues with fourth place in Giacenti’s World Qualifier: The Rossoneri striker frees himself on the offside brink and his left beats innocent Lucianocchi of the trio exclamation point in the first half of Italy’s excellent.
In the second half, the score was unchanged, with the Italians continuing to press to try to increase the number of goals. The right opportunity came in the 54th minute and this time it was Captain Gama who, after entering the area with a powerful shot, beat Lukianuki for the fourth time. In the following minutes, the coach revolutionized the starting line-up, giving space to Girelli, Gliona, Gianni, Salvai and Sofia, and five changes that do not slow down Italy’s momentum, realizing his inability to neglect the potentially crucial goal difference. For the purposes of the final Group G classification. In 83rd place on Gliona’s cross, the second blue spot comes from Caruso who, although Italy made two or three more balls, brought the curtain down on the match. Melina Bertolini’s players continue their journey in Group G with full points and without conceding goals: in a month there will be a date with Switzerland that could give a first important turning point for the path towards the tournament that will take place in 2023 in Australia and New Zealand, but Italy is ready.
