After their unforgettable performance at the World Cup in June 2019, the Italian Women’s national soccer team started the new season in Israel last Thursday.

The team led by coach Milena Bertolini confronted the Israeli national team at the Ramat Gan Stadium in the first qualifying match for the Euro Cup 2021.

The Azzurre defeated the home team 3-2.

“The August and September games are always difficult. At the beginning of the match, we suffered from Israel’s aggressive attitude and also because we were not playing at our best. We did not take advantage of all the opportunities we had and then when we thought the game was over, we slowed down too much and suffered again. We must continue growing,” commented Bertolini.

On Tuesday, Italy will play against Georgia.
