Carlo Silipo's girls achieve the feat: they beat the USA, gold in three Olympics and four World Cups in a row, 8-7 and reach the world semifinal
The last ones to have succeeded in a World Cup had always been the blue ones: there is an unfinished business, a story of destinies that are intertwined betweento the Setterosa and the unbeatable Americans, who had suffered their last defeat in 2015 in the preliminary round from Italy: that time they finished with a title with stars and stripes, on the other hand the USA then won three Olympic gold medals and four World Cups in a row, and a bronze for us. This time it finished 8-7 for Carlo Silipo's girls and we'll see what the final outcome will be. Meanwhile, a great reason to be proud after the defeat against Greece, which still gave the girls a jolt. Best player, goalkeeper Caterina Banchelli: it was a very tiring match. I no longer have a voice. We promised to get out of the water after giving everything. We did. I haven't really liked it so far either. I chose the right game to play.
We finally saw the Setterosa, the one I'm proud to drive – Silipo's first words -. A performance of head, heart and character was needed to beat the United States. We succeeded. This success must give us confidence and awareness. The World Cup doesn't end here, just as it didn't end after the defeat against Greece when I already heard the bells for the deceased.
