AC Milan Women took on FC Gintra in their first pre season friendly of the 2021/22 season in Lithuania. The Rossonere were held to a 1-1 draw by the Lithuanian Champions but we were able to get a good look at a number of the new signings. Milan Women went down 1-0 in the 74th minute but managed to equalise in the 86th minute with a rebound tap in from Miriam Longo following a cross from Rizza and a saved shot from Giacinti. There were plenty of debuts handed out to the Rossonere: Thrige, Stapelfeldt and Thomas all played from the first minute, while Giuliani, Kirschstein and Miotto came on to make their debuts in the second half.
The next friendly engagement will be on Saturday in Saint Vincent where there will be two matches, against the Swiss team Servette, another team involved in the Champions League preliminaries, and Sampdoria, new entrants of the new Women’s Serie A.
