The Italy Women’s National Team are back in action this summer with two 2025 Women’s European Championship qualification matches against the Netherlands and Finland, and coach Andrea Soncin has named a 33-player squad ahead of the games.

After an immediate upturn in form following the disaster that was the 2023 Women’s World Cup and Soncin‘s subsequent arrival on the bench – the Azzurre lost just two of his first six matches in charge, even beating world champions SpainItaly have had a harder time in 2024 so far.

Of their six matches this calendar year, the Azzurre have managed just one win. They can, though, take spirit from back-to-back draws against a good Norway side in the June Euro 2025 qualifiers.

That one win this year came against the Netherlands in Cosenza back in April, when AS Roma forward Valentina Giacinti and Inter‘s Agnese Bonfantini both scored. Soncin and the Azzurre will be hoping for similar against the Dutch in Sittard.
