Women’s National Team: Azzurre beaten by Switzerland in final Cyprus Cup match

The Women’s National Team lost for the third time in the Cyprus Cup after previously falling 3-0 to DPR Korea, 4-1 to Belgium as the final match ended with Switzerland winning 6-0 in Larnaca.

It was a tough match against the Swiss who already beat Antonio Cabrini’s Azzurre twice in European Championship qualifying. Switzerland took the lead after just six minutes and doubled their advantage after 21 minutes. At 2-0, there was a good Italy chance for Bergamaschi on the counterattack but the Swiss made it 3-0 in the 33rd minute.

Switzerland added three more goals in the second half while the Brescia midfielder Barbara Bonansea hit the bar as the Azzurre looked to find a consolation.
