Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    A match of few clear-cut chances ended goalless as Teodora Albon brings the opening game of Women's EURO 2013 to a close. Despite enjoying the majority of possession Italy were unable to break down a dogged Finland side, who will surely be delighted to come away with a point. The Azzure will hope for better luck against Denmark on Saturday.
