Naz U20femm-25-08Third and decisive appointment at the World Championship for the National Women's Under 20: at the "Univer Stadium" in Kobe against Nigeria 90 'without appeal for the Azzurrine. Either inside or outside, this is at stake in the last race of Group B (9.20 hours, direct Raisport 1, deferred 21.05). After the draw at the debut against Brazil and the setback against South Korea, Italy plays all its chances of passing the round with the strong African team, leaders of the group with 4 points and finalist in the last World edition.
A difficult task for the team of Corradini, forced to win with at least two goal difference to hope to achieve that qualification in the quarterfinals that would be a historic result for the national team and then continue its journey on Japanese soil. In fact, Italy, in its previous and only appearance at a World Cup in 2004, was eliminated in the elimination round: just like eight ago, Nigeria was the last opponent of the Italian team in a race that ended in a tie (1- 1).
In the modern facility of the city of Miki (just outside Kobe), the Azzurrine played in the afternoon the finishing session in which the blue technician was able to see the full recovery of Lisa Alborghetti: the blue midfielder, the victim of a left ankle injury in the debut race, he played the whole training session together with his classmates and is to be considered fully recovered. The whole team is therefore available to Corradini with the exception of Franco, disqualified. At the end of today's session, the Azzurrine signed Italian flags to be delivered to the children of the city of Miyagi, the center hit by the tsunami last year; the initiative, promoted by a Japanese volunteer association, has found the full support of the Italian team that responded with great enthusiasm.
"The girls are ready to give everything - the comment of Corradini on the eve of the decisive race with Nigeria - because they want to redeem themselves from the colorless test against South Korea and do everything possible to reach the quarters, which would be a fair prize and deserved for this team.These days - continues the coach blue - they served to regroup the group after the defeat on Wednesday.I asked the girls to show everyone that the real Italy is the one seen against Brazil and I noticed in their eyes the desire to overturn a prediction that now sees us disadvantaged for tomorrow I'm optimistic because I saw the team again compact and that has taken courage: will serve a great game, but also a little 'luck against an opponent of absolute value " .
The race will be directed by the Chinese referee Liang Qin. In Tokyo, in the other group race, they face each other
South Korea and Brazil.
