Already in the last quarter, the triumph was confirmed thanks to two goals from Jimena Cedrés, at 22 and 26 to confirm the passage to a new series.” I am satisfied with the result, the qualification to the World Cup, to finish in zero and to play the game with control and absolute dominance, “said Ferrara after the victory of the team, which in the group stage had beaten Uruguay 6-0 and Chile 4-0 to get into the definition.
