Ives Serneels describes Belgium’s historic victory over Italy as a career highlight

Head coach Ives Serneels declared Belgium’s historic victory a career highlight after a 1-0 win over Italy to secure their first place in the quarter-finals of the European Women’s Championship.

Tine De Caigny sent the Red Flames through with a commanding second-half goal, the Belgian defense being able to hold off an emboldened Italian attack in seven minutes of added time.

Serneels’ attention will soon turn to his side’s tough Friday game against Group C winners Sweden, but he took the time to savor the magical moment after the final whistle.

“This is a historic night for Belgian women’s football,” he said.

“I’ve had a lot of good moments in my career, but this is definitely at the top. This could be the best moment yet. It took a long time: I’ve been in the Belgium women’s national team for 11 years now. So I’m really happy that we’re making it to the quarter-finals!”

His counterpart expressed disappointment after a game in which Italy created many chances in the second half.

“They gave everything they had,” said Milena Bertolini.

“This tournament was an important experience and will help us grow for the future.”
