Italy Hold Nerve to Reach Costa Rica


Italy booked their ticket for the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup Costa Rica 2014 after beating England on penalties in the UEFA U-17 Women Championship match for third place.

The two sides battled out a goalless draw, meaning the match – and a place in Costa Rica – had to be settled by a penalty shootout. Enrico Sbardella’s side kept their nerve to triumph 4-3 in Burton-on-Trent.
