2 goals with a header in Palermo – Switzerland succeed in a coup against Italy – sport

  • The Swiss women’s national team won the important World Cup qualifier in Italy 2-1.
  • Two headed goals in the first half make the difference in the first battle of Group G.
  • After a contact injury, the Swiss must shiver until the Italians hit the crossbar in injury time.

It was the match that stunned all the players of the women’s national team since the draw for the qualifying groups. And they were ready for the decisive match. Most of their favorite opponents were from Italy.

In the ninth minute, the Swiss took the lead. Kumba Su headed in a cross from Anna Maria Kronogorsevich a few meters from the goal to make the score 1-0. It went exactly like this after 11 minutes, only from the other side: Ramona Bachmann crossed this time, Kronogorsevich prevailed firmly in the middle and put Switzerland ahead by two pieces.

Italy Breeding

Italy got stronger after that, but Switzerland remained the slightly better team. The hosts had their best stage in the second half, shortly after their subsequent goal. Bachmann lost the ball in third defensive position after dribbling, then Barbara Bonanci saw her take out Luana B├╝hler and unsustainably turned into the goal (60).

This seemed to awaken the Italians: immediately after that, they showed themselves as decisive and dangerous. Nielsen’s team was also lucky in the final stages. Bonansea missed the equalizer seconds from the end with a shot from the crossbar. Before that, Italy also demanded a penalty kick.

Before that, guests could explain everything from the third gate. Yes, it should: Svenja Volmley hit the post after a goal error (50th position), and Bachmann twice failed against Laura Giuliani (53/57 position).

So it continues

On Tuesday, the Swiss national team meet away from their native Lithuania, after which it is time for the winter break. The second duel with the Italians does not last until April 12. 4 days before that, the national team plays in Romania.
