“The rest week really allowed us to work calmly and focus on playing more directly, which is one of the things we’re best at. We raised our intensity on the pitch, especially after our opening goal, but today I really liked how we defended. The girls were, especially in the second half, compact and worked well by helping each other. Then, when we play direct football, we know how to do damage.

“We have [Martina] Lenzini, who I believe is the best centre-back in Italy, and I’ll try to play her there more often. Besides her, the whole team has a lot to offer, just look at the performance of captain [Sara] Gama today. In short, there were a lot of positives and defending is something that requires the whole team.

“Joe [Echegini] has scored eight goals in just a few weeks. She’s a quiet girl, her smiles are good for us, and she scores goals. Honestly, we don’t know what her ceiling is.

“This win gives us some reassurances after more than a month without a win. We’re very happy.”


“I’m, firstly, really excited and I want to give props to my team. For every one of those goals, we all worked for it and they’re great team goals. I really just had to put myself in the position and I wouldn’t have been able to do it without them.

“I’m really excited to have had the opportunity to be able to show what I can do, that makes me happy. I just want to make the most out of any opportunity I get, whether I score or not I want to be able to make an impact and I’m glad to have done that today.

"I know my strengths. Last year I scored 16 goals and knowing that I always try to put myself in the best position to score, that’s one of my best attributes and I want to make use of it as best I can.”
