National team: Italy

Which player has most inspired you and why? I like players that have the same role as me on the pitch, and more generally players who give their all on the field.

Which coach has most inspired you? All my coaches have given something to me. But there is one who pushed me most me when I was young.

What was the best advice they gave you? Play football. Keep the ball on the ground.

Best player you've played with? There are several, but football is a team sport and the team has allowed me to progress.

Toughest opponent? Inka Grings

What are your memories of your first club as a child? I was playing with the boys and I did not want to miss a match against one of my friends. I was injured and had a cast, but I escaped from the house without my mum knowing.

What tip would you give a young player hoping to succeed? Play with your heart, train as much as you can, and have the will to succeed with the group. The team will help you make the difference.

What was the experience of playing in a youth final tournament? The final of the 2008 European Championship that we won with the Women's Under-19s. An incredible joy.
