Fiorentina Women’s FC were beaten 1-0 by Juventus Women at Allianz Stadium on Sunday after Sofie Junge Pedersen struck six minutes from time in front of 39,027 fans in Turin.

“We leave with our heads held very high indeed,” said coach Antonio Cincotta after the game. “We’ve come here and played at the Stadium with a lot of pressure around the result and because of the atmosphere, yet we’ve shown courage to give a chance to young players who will be the future of Fiorentina and the national team.

“I wasn’t expecting us to have possession of the ball for such long periods. I feared it would be the opposite, given the atmosphere, but it shows that my team have huge mental strength. I’m proud of our performance – proud of the girls and all the staff.”
