After losing the very precious semifinals of Women FIH Series Finals Italy and South Africa will meet today in Valencia, for the 3rd and 4th rank in the series. Italy faced a mortified defeat against Canada yesterday while South Africa at least gave a tough battle to Spain but eventually succumbed to defeat.
Both the teams give their all in the match but at the there is only one winner which certainly Italy and SA weren’t. Now today, they will be playing to secure the third and fourth position in the series. Hence, if we talk about their previous experience, then both Italy and SA have played one match against each other, in which Italy won. The goals were equal however, one goal from each side.
There are news updates from either side of the team, so they will most likely go with the usual squad for the next fixture.
