  • Description

    A CROWD OF 35,000 TURNED OUT TONIGHT TO SEE DENMARK WIN THE WOMEN'S SOCCER WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP HERE, BEATING ITALY 2-0 (HALF-TIME: 1-0) IN THE FINAL.

    IT WAS THE THIRD TIME IN THE BRIEF HISTORY OF INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S SOCCER THAT THE TWO TEAS HAD MET. IN THE FIRST THEY DREW, IN THE SECOND, ITALY BEAT DENMARK AND TONIGHT THE DANES WON THE MOST IMPORTANT - THE ONE FOR THE WORLD TITLE.

    IT WAS AN ENTERTAINING MATCH, WHICH SAW THE DANES STRONGER IN TECHNIQUE AND WITH SURPRISINGLY QUICK AND ACCURATE PASSING.

    MISS SCHIAVO, THE BEST OF THE ITALIAN TEAM AND THE ONLY PROFESSIONAL ON IT, MISSED SCORING ON A PENALTY WHICH COULD HAVE LESSENED THE ITALIANS' DISADVANTAGE.

    THE ITALIANS CENTRED THEIR GAME AROUND HER, AS THOUGH SHE WERE A FEMALE GIGI RIVA, AND THE DANES FOLLOWED THE LEAD OF ITALY'S MALE TEAM'S WORLD CUP OPPONENTS, BY MAKING SURE SHE WAS CLOSELY GUARDED ALL THE WAY BY AT LEAST TWO PLAYERS. THIS WEAKENED ITALY'S CHANCES.

    SCORERS: MISS HANSEN IN THE 18TH MINUTE OF THE FIRST HALF AND MISS SEVCICKOVA TWO MINUTES BEFORE THE END OF THE MATCH, WHICH WAS WATCHED BY 35,000 SPECTATORS.

    THE PITCH WAS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.

    TEAMS:
    ITALY: SEGHETTI, CANEPA, CERUTTI, MONDO, PINARDI, BONANNI, MOLINO, DAVOM, MELLA, COLLA, SCHIAVO.

    DENMARK: TERMENSEN, G.NIELSEN, B.NIELSEN, LIND SCHEFFERT, EVERS, MANDICKOVA, HANSEN, IRENE CHRISTENSEN, INGRID CHRISTENSEN, SEVCICKOVA.
