The third time she went out in the warm-up of a friendly match against Fir Academy and I had to operate. Between labia, glena and other parts of the joint the orthopedists said there was disaster. So I saw from the stands my teammates rossoblù, last year I was playing in the FemiCz Rovigo, winning the Scudetto. In the summer I moved to Calvisano. Here the coach Gianluca Guidi is giving me confidence, compared to the one that perhaps Umberto Casellato had lost in Rovigo. returned to the field in the two matches of the Italian Cup.

In the Top 10 I made my debut with Rovigo against the Lyons, scoring immediately “. Same script followed in Calvisano. “An easy goal – reconstructs Mastandrea – A well-constructed action initiated by Consoli, passed through the hands of Vunisa and others. I free off I only had to crush. But it is an important goal for the team.
