fell just short on Sunday evening as they lost the Coppa Italia Femminile final on penalties, with Roma getting their hands on the trophy at the Rossonere’s expense.

In what was an even game that the Giallorosse perhaps just edged, and Natasha Dowie in attack for came up against an inspired defence, with Allyson Swaby and Elena Linari putting in excellent performances.

Ratings:

Korenciova 5.5; Vitale 6, Fusetti 6.5, Agard 6.5; Bergamaschi 6.5, Jane 6.5 (89′ Mauri 6.5), Boquete 6.5, Hasegawa 6.5, Tucceri Cimini 6.5; Giacinti 7.5, Dowie 6.5 (76′ Grimshaw 6).

Player of the Match –

The Italian was frustrated for most of the evening, often venturing into offside positions in search of space behind a perfect defence.

The No.9 dropped deep in search of position and looked to link with Dowie quickly when the ball came her way. She moved well, but it just wasn’t to be her night with Roma’s defence being unbeatable.
