Giacinti, in particular, has been Milan’s most prominent player for the Azzurre. To date, the forward has scored three goals for the national team.
The match against Israel will be played in Firenze on February 24th. Expect Giacinti to take the field then as Italy will try to secure qualification for the Women’s Euros in 2022.

AC Milan will take on Sassuolo this Saturday in the second leg of the Coppa Italia Femminile. The match will be a home game for Milan as they’ll be playing at the Vismara.
The first leg ended in a 1-1 tie. Milan will head into this game carrying an away goal advantage.
Look for them to try to win this match as they try to progress towards the seminfinals of the tournament.
The match will be played on Saturday at 14:30 CET (5:30 am PST / 8:30 am EST). There’s no word on where the match will be broadcast.

There might be a slight chance it’ll be streamed on the AC Milan app, Dailymotion page, and broadcast on Milan TV too.
