Azzurri victorious in Siena

The Azzurri defeated South Africa 2-0 in a friendly match this evening in Siena. Cristiano Lucarelli scored both goals in a game that fielded only three players from last year's World Cup championship team. Incidentally, Lucarelli was not a member of that team but played for head coach Roberto Donadoni in Livorno last year.

It is believed that this match was the first game ever played in Siena by the national team. Siena was scheduled to host a friendly with Romania in February but the match was canceled after a policeman was killed during riots at a game in Catania, Sicily.
Siena "friendly" to Azzurri
