CALCIO-NAPOLINapoli defeated Siena 2-0 to reach the Italian Cup final on a 3-2 aggregate and will face Juventus in the May 20 final where they will look to end their 22-year wait for silverware.

Edinson Cavani was again the star of the show as he helped Napoli to a 2-0 victory over Siena .

“This was one of the aims that we set ourselves at the beginning of the year,” Cavani said. “Siena played a great game, especially in the second half. We had to suffer, after the break they took control but we managed to resist them.

“I am happy to be in the final and to have a place in a European tournament,” said Napoli coach Walter Mazzarri.

Napoli will play in a final for the first time in 15 years.

MIRKO Vucinic scored a stunning extra-time goal to help Juventus into the Italian Cup final with a 4-3 aggregate win over AC Milan in the semi-final second leg and sent Juventus into their first Italian Cup final since 2004.

Milan had forced extra-time by leading 2-1 after 90 minutes but ultimately paid for their semi-final, first leg defeat at home .

Veteran Alessandro Del Piero had given Juve a first-half lead but second period goals from Djamel Mesbah, his first for Milan, and Maxi Lopez forced the extra period.

Vucinic’s goal ensured Juve still have not been beaten this season.

“Going through means a lot to us, we’re really proud,” said goalscorer Del Piero.

“I’m delighted for tonight, as much for my goal as for qualification.

The All Blacks in Rome!


The All Blacks, New Zealand’s national rugby team, will play a test match against Italy in Rome on 17 November, according to the Italian Rugby Federation. The New Zealand national rugby union team, known as the All Blacks, represent New Zealand in what is regarded as its national sport. The All Blacks are the Rugby world cup champions, the IRB’s current Team of the Year, the leading points scorers of all time and the only international rugby team with a record winning margin against every test nation they have played. The All Blacks have held the top ranking in the world for longer than all other countries combined and in over 100 years only five test rugby nations have ever beaten New Zealand.

It will be the first time that the All Blacks have played at the 72,000-seater Stadio Olimpico, as the last time Italy hosted the formidable squad from down under was in 2009. That game was played in Milan’s S. Siro stadium in front of 81,000 spectators, and the All Blacks won 20-6. The last time the All Blacks played in Rome was at Flaminio Stadium – currently no longer being used by the FIR – when they hammered the Italians 59-10 in 2004.

The champion team is known for performing the fearsome “haka” (a traditional M?ori challenge) before each international match. During their northern hemisphere tour, the All Blacks will play Scotland on 10 November, then Italy, Wales and England over the following Saturdays.

Italy plans to face Tonga on 10 November in Turin, and Australia on 24 November in Bologna.
