Italy took the world by surprise during the 2019 Women’s World Cup, finishing on top of a group which contained Brazil and Australia, and making a respectable run to the quarterfinals. The Azzurre combined those classic, gritty Italian traits of “grinta” and tactical nous.
The Italians have steadily raised their games at the biggest stage and are earning a reputation for being a difficult team to beat. Now, with the rescheduled UEFA Women’s EURO falling in 2022 and starting this week, it is a new-look Azzurre gearing up for the competition.
Defensive solidity traditionally associated with the Italians remains, but it has been combined with a more modern and progressive approach.
