The thoughts of the Nerazzurre Coach and captain Lisa Alborghetti ahead of the match against Chivas


BROWNSVILLE – Inter Women’s USA tour continues, and it’s almost time for the team to take to the pitch: at 19:30 LT on Wednesday 10 August (2:30 CEST on Thursday 11 August in Italy), the Nerazzurre will face Chivas de Guadalajara in a friendly at Brownsville Sports Park.

On Tuesday 9 August, Coach Rita Guarino and Lisa Alborghetti took part in a press conference ahead of the game. Chivas coach Juan Pablo Alfaro also participated, as did midfielder Carolina Jaramillo and Jorge Villalobos, CEO of SMM Sports & Entertainment, promoter of the Nerazzurre’s American tour.

This is what Rita Guarino had to say to the media outlets present:

“We’re very happy to be here and have the opportunity to play international-level matches. Having these kinds of experiences and encountering football cultures that are different to ours will undoubtedly be enriching for us. It’ll be a pleasure to face Chivas tomorrow because women’s football in Mexico has turned professional in recent years and the level has risen significantly. We’ll face Chivas with a young side with players from our Primavera side also bolstering our ranks. We’re still in pre-season, but we’ll prepare as best we can for tomorrow’s match against the current Mexican champions.”

Nerazzurre captain Lisa Alborghetti stressed the importance of having such experiences:

“We’re delighted to be involved in an international tournament, the first time this has happened for our club at women’s level. For us, it’s a source of pride, and we’d like to thank the Club for the big opportunity they’ve given us. Tomorrow, we’ll play our first international-level match and, despite the fact that we’re still preparing for the season, we can’t wait to face Chivas.”
