The AC Milan Women have been racking up many awards as of late.

Valentina Giacinti was named the AIC’s Player of The Month. The player more than merits the honour based on her performances in the month of March. In particular, she was outstanding against Inter Milan, where she scored four goals leading Milan to a derby victory. To date, Giacinti has scored 16 goals and has been the driving force behind Milan’s attack.

Mária Korenčiová was named the Footballer of The Year in Slovakia. The goalkeeper has had a great season, as she’s registered 111 saves and has kept ten clean sheets for the season.

Serie A Femminile is currently on hiatus due to the international break. Yui Hasegawa has been summoned by Japan to play in their friendlies against Paraguay and Panama. Valentina Giacinti and Valentina Bergamaschi have been summoned by Italy to play in their friendlies against Iceland.

Italy’s matches will take place on April 10th and 13th. The Milan players will meet their old teammate, Berglind Björg Thorvaldsdóttir, along with their new one, Guðný Árnadóttir, then.

League play will resume on April 17th. Milan will play Napoli CF on April 18th. The match will take place at 12:30 CET (3:30 am PST / 6:30 am EST).
