Awards, international call-ups and cup action: News about the AC Milan Women

By Steph Insixiengmay -

Two players from AC Milan Women were selected for the Team of the Week while a number have been summoned for international duty, after the upcoming Coppa Italia action.

Top honours

Two Milan players were named to the FIGC’s Team of The Week for Matchday Nine. Laura Agard and Christy Grimshaw earned top honors for their performances last weekend.

In particular, Agard made five blocks, three interceptions, and cleared two shots off the line. Grimshaw, on the other hand, made thirteen recoveries in the midfield. And as the FIGC noted, no player had that many recoveries that day. It was truly a commanding performance from the two of them.

International duty

A few AC Milan players have been summoned for international duty. Valentina Giacinti, Laura Giuliani, and Valentina Bergamaschi have been summoned to play for Italy. They will face Switzerland and Romania on November 26th and 30th.

Grimshaw also made Scotland’s list for the Women’s World Cup qualifiers. Mária Korenčiová will be summoned for Slovakia, while Guðný Árnadóttir has received her summons for Iceland.

Iceland will play Japan in a friendly match and then face Cyprus for a Women’s World Cup qualifier. The friendly game will be played in at the Yanmar Stadion in Almere, Netherlands on November 25 and the qualifier will be played on November 30 at the AEK Stadium in Cyprus.

Árnadóttir will play against former Milan player, Yui Hasegawa, during that friendly. The international break will begin next week.

Coppa Italia

AC Milan will play Lady Granata Cittadella this Saturday at 14:30 CET. According to MilanNews24, there will most likely be a heavy turnover for the match, as Milan’s best players will be rested for this encounter.

Among them will be Laia Codina and Refiloe Jane. The two players are still recovering from injuries and are said to be undergoing individualized training regimes in preparation for the upcoming derby against Inter.

The derby against Inter will take place on Sunday, December 5th, at 14:30 CET.
