Summary :

  • Against all the odds, proving every prediction wrong, Italy topped their group, which had women’s football powerhouses Australia and Jamaica in it.
  • Their stoic defense and ruggedness in the middle of the park was the reason for their unexpected high return.
  • Chine, on the other hand, rode their luck and scraped past their group by the virtue of being one of the best third-placed teams in the tournament.
  • A 1-0 win over South Africa and a stalemate in the last game against resurgent Spain was enough to send them into the next round.
