Italy will take a narrow 2-1 lead to Ukraine in Wednesday's FIFA Women's World Cup play-off semi-final second leg after the visitors came away from Rieti very much in the tie.
In the first leg of their play-off four years ago Italy won 3-0 in Ukraine and they looked on course after an immediate goal by Valentina Cernoia. But Daryna Apanaschenko headed Ukraine level and although Melania Gabbiadini restored Italy's advantage, there is still all to play for in Lviv.
