Ghedin handed Italy reins

The Italian Football Federation has named Pietro Ghedin as coach of the women's team, replacing Carolina Morace.
The Italian Football Federation has appointed Pietro Ghedin as new coach of the women's national team after parting company with Carolina Morace.

EURO woe
The 52-year-old brings a wealth of experience to the post, after acting as assistant to Cesare Maldini, Dino Zoff and Giovanni Trapattoni for Italy's men's team. He also had a spell in charge of Malta and switches to the women's game following Morace's departure in the wake of Italy's disappointing showing at UEFA WOMEN'S EURO 2005™.

Serie A experience
Italy lost all three games in the group stage in England and the former ACF Fiorentina and S.S. Lazio defender will be charged with helping them turn things around.
