and thus at the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup has been a bit 'behind' other European nations with Spain falling behind the most. After a golden moment in the 90s between '99 and 2014 there was a fifteen-year slowdown, where “Italy stopped and the rest of Europe ran," explained the coach of Azzurre Milena Bertolini. Despite this setback, the movement is back on track and the FIFA women's world cup is the testing ground to see how far the Azzurre have come.
The battle already begins in the group stage of the FIFA Women's World Cup, where italian national team is part of Group C with Australia, Brazil, and Jamaica. The carioca and Australia, in 6th place in the FIFA ranking
