England 1 (Moore 25) Italy 3 (Panico 59, Conti 64, Gabbiadini 86)
England finished fourth in the Cyprus Cup following a 3-1 defeat to Italy on Tuesday afternoon.
Jade Moore gave England the lead on 25 minutes with her first senior team goal after being set up by Rachel Williams. Hope Powell's side took this lead into the break, but Italy turned things around after the interval, with Patrizia Panico starting their comeback just before the hour mark.
Pamela Conti then put the Italians in front after 64 minutes and Melania Gabbiadini completed the scoring four minutes from time.
This friendly tournament ultimately provided the Three Lions with the opportunity to prepare for their Euro 2013 qualifier against Croatia at the end of the month, and there were a number of milestones reached out in Cyprus as Moore made her debut against Finland and both Fara Williams and Casey Stoney earned their 100th international caps.
England: Rachel Brown (sub Siobhan Chamberlain 60mins), Alex Scott, Rachel Unitt, Steph Houghton (sub Jill Scott 45mins), Laura Bassett, Casey Stoney, Dunia Susi (sub Karen Carney 69mins), Fara Williams, Rachel Williams (sub Ellen White 59mins), Jade Moore, Sue Smith. Subs not used: Karen Bardsley, Sophie Bradley, Kelly Smith, Jess Clarke, Anita Asante, Carly Telford, Fern Whelan.
