Photos: For the first time in football history, a woman will coach an Italian male national team

In a footballing first, a woman will coach a male outfit in Italy when former player Patrizia Panico takes the helm of the national under-16 team. Rated the best female footballer from Italy, Panico is assistant for the under-16s but the head coach Daniel Zoratto is set to take over the under-19 side temporarily, propelling her into the top post for a spell.


"There are many walls still to break down," said the 42-year-old Panico of the daily barriers women face in Italy, which lags some other countries in Europe when it comes to equality.

"But this will help them fall. To be the first woman to coach a male side is a huge success for me," added Panico, who scored 110 goals for Italy in a mammoth 204 international appearances.



The two games Panico will oversee while Zoratto is away are against Germany on March 22nd and 24th.

What a man can do, a woman too can also be given a trial. Best of luck!

She has been tested in acting capacity. I think she will perform better now as the coach.
