The Italy Women’s National Team were unable to build on their recent and impressive win over The Netherlands away against Finland in 2025 Women’s European Championship qualification, losing 2-1 in Helsinki.

AS Roma full-back Lucia Di Guglielmo had put the Azzurre ahead in the first half, but the hosts responded soon after to go in level at the break courtesy of a Jutta Rantala strike. Young Como Women forward Oona Sevenius scored the winner for Finland, aided by a big diversion as Elena Linari looked to swipe the ball away from goal.

The result leaves all four teams in League A Group 1 level on three points after two matchdays.
