Italian legend coming to Perth

FIFA Ambassador Carolina Morace and her assistant Betty Bavagnoli will be coming to Perth during August this year.
Carolina Morace was the top scorer in Serie A in the 1984–85 season, and for 11 consecutive years from 1987–1988 to 1997–1998. During her career, she made 153 appearances for Italy, scoring 105 goals. While playing in the Italian national women’s league, she scored more than 550 goals. She took part in six European Championships as well as the inaugural FIFA Women’s World Cup China 1991, where she scored four goals. As a curtain-raiser to the 1990 FA Charity Shield, Italy played the England women’s national football team at Wembley Stadium. Morace scored all four goals in England’s 4–1 defeat and holds the record for all male and female players as scoring the most goals at Wembley.

Carolina and Betty not only played for the Italian National team but both hold their UEFA Pro License and have coached together the Italian Women’s National Team 2000-2005 and the Canadian Women’s National Team 2009-2011 where they won the 2010 CONCACAF Championship. Morace is also probably best known in Italy for having been the only woman to coach a professional men’s football team, Viterbese of Italian Serie C1, a post she took in June 1999.

While in Perth they will be offering their expertise to all female players at either the junior, social or elite level assisting them to improve their physical capabilities as players, technical ability and their understanding of the game.
