HALF TIME! England 1-0 Italy

So far, it’s very good for England in terms of two-over-two wins in the Arnold Clark Cup.

Sarina Wiegman will look more at the performance after making nine changes on her side.

Rachel Daly certainly made her statement by scoring after being picked from the front. Katie Robinson was smart and gave Daly a great assist in the head.

Yet England lacks a bit of rhythm. Italy surrounded Keira Walsh and Jess Park was not as effective as she could have been, while Laura Coombs remained silent.

Defensively, England was pretty solid.

England 1-0 Italy

45 minutes: Get off the bar! Hemp, now on the right, throws a swinging cross into the middle where Daly rises well again. This time the header hits the post and then the flag for offside is raised. Daly was gone early, so it didn’t count anyway.

England 1-0 Italy

43rd minute: Half chance for Italy! Bonansea spins well in midfield and heads into space. Giacinti wanted to dodge Carter’s shoulder and Bonansea tucked him in, but Roebuck read it well and rushed to pack up. Good goalie.

England 1-0 Italy

39th minute: Italy has not yet responded to England’s opening goal. They set out to restrain England, but their confidence seems insufficient when they get a chance to advance.

Carter clears the Italian attack while Giugliano searches for Giacinti.

AIM! England 1-0 Italy (DALY 33′)

The lioness has taken the lead! Robinson scores and Daly faces England first!

It was a great game from England starting with a wide ball from Greenwood to Hemp. The winger advanced, but Italy failed to clear the cross properly. Le Tissier gained a substantial head to keep England in the forefront and played wide against Robinson from the right.

This time he found his middle goal: Daly beat the defender on the ball and took a header past the Italy goalkeeper. A great move and a great goal for Daly to achieve – reaffirming his choice!
