Serie A Makes History And Appoints League's First Ever Female Referee

Italy's Serie A has appointed Maria Sole Ferrieri Caputi for the 2022-23 season as its first female referee.

The 31-year-old Ferrieri Caputi became the first female to referee a match involving a Serie A team last year — Cagliari’s Italian Cup clash with Cittadella.

She will now referee a top-flight match for the first time next term after joining the league's officiating team on Friday.

New Challengers Approach — Meet The Three Promoted Teams In Serie A For 2022-23 Season

Last season, Venezia showed the world just how difficult it is to stay up in the first division after being promoted. Many teams work for years to reach the first division only to bounce right back down the following season. After a long season in Serie B, let's meet the three newest members of Serie A and learn how they got here.

Samuel Eto’o Pays $5.9 Million To Avoid Prison In Spain

BARCELONA — Former Cameroon striker Samuel Eto'o was handed a 22-month suspended prison sentence by a Spanish court on Monday after admitting tax fraud of 3.8 million euros ($4.00 million) while he was playing for Barcelona.

Eto'o agreed to pay a fine of 1.8 million euros and the 3.8 million in tax owed from image rights between 2006 and 2009.

Olivier Giroud Leads AC Milan To First Scudetto In More Than A Decade

Olivier Giroud will never be considered an all-time great footballer, but the Frenchman wins wherever he goes. He added yet another trophy to his considerable mantle while scoring a brace on Sunday.

Giroud’s two goals helped AC Milan beat Sassuolo 3-0 on Sunday, rendering Inter Milan’s 3-0 win over Sampdoria moot. The Rossoneri edged the Nerazzurri for the Serie A crown 86 points to 84, claiming Milan’s first Scudetto since 2011. 

Ivan Perišić’s Two-Footed Genius Ensures Juventus Finishes Season Trophyless

Weston McKennie and Juventus will finish the 2021-22 season without a trophy. Ivan Perišić made sure of it with two well-taken goals — one with each foot — in extra time as Inter Milan claimed the Coppa Italia 4-2 on Wednesday at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome. 

In a wild, back-and-forth match that saw Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri shown a red card, Inter took full advantage of two penalty kicks and dominated extra time to claim its eighth Coppa Italia, trailing only Juventus (14) and Roma (9) for most all time. 

You Cannot Fathom How Bad This Inter Howler Is Until You See It

It was all set up for Inter Milan to retake the lead in the race for the Serie A title. Just beat 13th-place Bologna and the blue half of Milan would overtake the red half for first place with four games to go. 

Instead, backup goalkeeper Ionuț Radu committed one of the worst howlers in the history of European football. 

Bologna knocked off Inter Milan 2-1 thanks to a calamitous mistake from Radu, who whiffed on the ball from inside his own six-yard box, allowing Nicola Sansone to swoop in and poke home the match winner in the 81st minute.

Spezia Player Subbed Out After 10 Minutes Because He Can’t Get His Earrings Off

M’Bala Nzola has been defeated by an earring. 

The 25-year-old Spezia forward enjoyed a brief 10-minute cameo during a 3-1 defeat to Inter Milan on Friday. The Angola international was subbed on in the 60th minute. Soon thereafter, the referee spotted he wearing earrings and told the player to take them off. By the 70th minute, Nzola was subbed off, apparently unable to remove his earrings. It was Spezia’s fifth and final substitution of the night.

Inter Milan Had Liverpool On The Ropes, But Then Alexis Sánchez Ruined All Our Fun

There's the scoreline and then there's reality. 

After Liverpool's 2-0 first leg victory at the San Siro back on Feb. 16, the refrain you constantly heard in the buildup and throughout the opening hour at Anfield on Tuesday was that Inter was still precariously alive in this one — just get the first goal and Anfield would be theirs for the taking!

Craving A Classic Title Race? Look No Further Than Serie A

In an era with historically-dominant clubs running away with their leagues every season, it becomes difficult to appreciate their supremacy because they have largely removed the drama from domestic title races.

In France, where the title race last season was one of the best in recent memory, Paris Saint-Germain has once again sat atop the table throughout the campaign.

Milan Madman Maignan Makes Slide Tackle 20 Yards From His Goal Then Chops Ball Past Two Inter Players

Saturday’s Milan derby did anything but disappoint as AC Milan defeated Inter Milan 2-1 in an incredibly entertaining game. Olivier Giroud netted two late goals for the Rossoneri to stage a dramatic comeback. The biggest hero of the game might have been goalkeeper Mike Maignan who had several brilliant saves.

Maignan’s finest hour came in the first half when he momentarily halted an Inter counterattack with a slide tackle 20 yards out of his goal. With the ball at his feet Maignan then had the audacity to attempt to chop the ball past both attackers.
