In these weeks, the Italian Women’s Serie A is coming to an end and Juventus and Brescia are head to head at the top. In the meantime, Italian national team is waiting for an important appointment in June that could mean the access to the World Cup in 2019.

The young and talented Cristiana Girelli is a key player in both “Azzurre” team and Brescia. In April, she scored an important goal in the match against Belgium and she is more than ever committed to help her team, Brescia, to win the Italian championship. A few weeks ago Mario Merati interviewed her for Calciodonne, here is the translation of the inspiring chat with her.

Undoubtedly, Cristiana Girelli will not easily forget these last weeks, her goal against Belgium has opened the way for the Italian National team to reach the World Cup in France in 2019, and her team, Brescia, is leading an exciting head to head with Juventus team in the Italian Serie A. Moreover, only a few days ago, her team won against Juventus reaching the Italian Women’s Cup semi finals.

Inter women’s team, the goals for the Azzurre and Zanetti’s advice: an interview with Agnese Bonfantini

Back in January, Calciodonne.it interviewed Agnese Bonfantini, forward of the F.C Inter women’s team. Born in 1999, number 10 on the shoulders, Alex Morgan’s achievements in mind (and in that pink head band as a hair clip) and a great future ahead, Agnese tells us something more about her.

Like many young players, Agnese divides her time between school and a promising football career, started when she was 6 years old. Her skills originate from a basic preparation given by male teams, in which she played from the beginnings until she joined the Inter women team. When she was 6 years old, for three years, she gained experience playing at the men’s team of Fondotoce. Later, she moved to Gravellona Toce for two seasons, before joining the Inter team.

But the famous “neroazzurro” colour, is not the only one that Agnese likes to wear. She also wore the “azzurro” of the Italian national team. First, she played in the under 17 team and now she is in the Under 19 team, with whom they have recently managed to pass the first phase of the European Championship. Here is what she told us: Read the rest of this entry →
