FIFA Women's World Cup: Where to watch Italy vs China live on June 25

June 24, 2019 By Michelle Bonsu
Can the Azzurre continue their run at this summer's World Cup? Live Soccer TV's match preview provides match facts, team news, and global broadcast listings for Italy vs. China.

Current form: Italy vs China

Italy come into this game having lost their final group stage game to Brazil under rather controversial circumstances. The Azzurre were in contention to finish their quartet unbeaten until the South American powerhouse were gifted a rather generous penalty, which Marta easily converted to give them a life-line and passage to the round of 16. Although it didn't prevent Milena Bertolini's ladies from finishing top of their group, it means that they suffered their first regulation time loss in 2019 and now will have to quickly put that behind them as they face 1999 World Cup runners-up China. Prior to the defeat, Italy had won nine and drawn one of their 11 fixtures, with the only exception being a narrow defeat to North Korea on spot-kicks (7-6) after drawing them 3-3 in the Cyprus Cup final.

As for China, the Steel Roses have been hardly the most exciting or inspiring side, as they scored just one goal in their three group stage games. Despite dominating in the two tournaments they hosted - the Meizhou Four Nations Tournament and the Wuhan International Tournament - overall, China have not had a good 2019. They flopped miserably at the Algarve Cup and were beaten 2-1 by France in their pre-World Cup friendly game, and goals seem to be a major problem so far for this at this summer's tournament.

How they got to the round of 16: Italy vs China

The Azzurre came from behind to beat Australia 2-1 with two second half goals after the Matildas had taken an early lead. On matchday two, they easily cruised to a 5-0 win over debutants Jamaica, with Juventus-based duo Cristiana Girelli and Aurora Galli netting a hat-trick and a brace respectively. Although they will feel aggrieved in how they were denied three points against Brazil, nonetheless Italy's matchday three defeat was not enough to deny them the chance to finish top of Group C.

China, meanwhile, narrowly lost 1-0 to Germany, rebounded with a hard-fought 1-0 victory over South Africa, and held Spain to a scoreless stalemate in order to earn four points and qualify for the round of 16 as one of the better-ranked third-placed sides.

Match facts and stats: Italy vs China

  • This will be the eighth meeting between Italy and China
  • The Azzurre have the slightly better head-to-head record, with three wins versus the Steel Roses' two
  • However, China beat them 2-0 in their most recent meeting back in 2015
  • Italy are in the knockout rounds for the first time since 1991

Team news: Italy vs China

Italy: No injury or suspensions for Italy, thus the Azzurre can field their best starting XI ahead of this must-win game.

China: Wang Shanshan appears to have shaken off an injury as she featured in training on Monday, so coach Jia Xiuquan will also have his strongest team ready for this clash.
