IRELAND DEFENDER LOUISE Quinn was on target for Fiorentina this weekend in the Coppa Italia but her effort wasn’t enough to see them through to the semi-finals of the competition.

Quinn scored the only goal of their second leg clash with Inter Milan but they lost the overall tie following a 2-0 defeat in the opening leg.

Fiorentina took the lead in the 40th minute of the clash, with Quinn rising highest to get on the end of a free-kick and guiding the ball to the net with a header.

The Wicklow native has been in good scoring form for the Italian outfit, having also bagged a goal in Fiorentina’s Italian Women’s Super Cup semi-final win over AC Milan last month.

They subsequently lost out to Juventus in the decider.

Quinn joined Fiorentina last summer after three years in England with Arsenal.
