ITA-W vs JM-W Dream11 Match Preview, Team News, Lineups
It’s the 2nd game for both the teams and a lot is riding as another negative result would knock Jamaica out of the competition, while Italy must win to keep their destiny in their own hands. World Ranking:
First Game Snippets: It was a chastening experience for Reggae Girlz in their first ever world cup as they were handed a 3-0 defeat at the hands of women football powerhouse Brazil. Nerves seemed to have got the better of Jamaican players, as they failed to take advantage of the opportunities they created, and they had enough to make the match a tad more competitive. With just 3 games at the group stage, a loss can land a team in the catastrophic situations, and that’s what Jamaica find themselves in as they face an elimination game against Italy.
Italy fared far better for their long absence from the FIFA Women’s World Cup, beating a top team in Australia 2-1 in their opening game. Though the win tops every other emotion, head coach Milena Bertolini must have been delighted nonetheless at the fighting spirit shown by her players on the pitch. It’s worth mentioning that Azzurri came from behind to win the game with the winner coming in the 95th minute from the head of Barabara Bonansea.

Possible Ins or Out: Cheyna Matthews wasn’t at her best against Brazil and could be a benched here as the manager looks to make changes both in personnel and formation. Jody Brown could get the start as a No-10, moving in behind striker Khadija Shaw, with Trudi Carter playing alongside her upfront.

Possible Ins or Out: We expect Milena Bertolini to go with an extra player in the midfield against Brazil. Image credit @AP Australia were leading 1-0 going into the break and were far superior to Italy. If there was a team likely to score the 2nd goal of the match, it was the Aussies. But Azzurri’s head coach Milena Bertolini made a tactical change at half time, replacing midfielder Aurora Galli with defender . The move worked as Bartoli’s defence first approach made the life difficult for the Aussies in the middle of the park. Elisa Bartoli
