There is a fear of circumstances Christina Chirichella, is at rest against the Chinese due to a small muscular problem, but the heart of Napoli in the match should be like Alicia Oro, alternating the output in the last match with Ophelia Malinov. In any case, both the latter and the alternatives, Marina Lupien and Elena Petrini, not forgetting Silvia Noakalore, give enough guarantees for a group that can actually count on 12 owners.
