Romania took the lead in the 6-th minute.Cristina Carp caught the ball after a corner kick and after a shot it flew in the net, regardless of the efforts of Edona Kryeziu to clear away from the goal line. In the 19-th minute Mara Batea punished the badly structured defence of Kosovo and scored after a good wing pass of Adina Giurgiu. 8 minutes later Batea scored again by center breakthrough and passed the ball under the plunge of 16 year old goalkeeper Florentina Kolgeci. In the second half Kosovo got a more equal game and even made a couple situations in front of the Romania's goal. Especially active were Valentina Limani and the captain Qendresa Krasniqi. Kolgeci made a good saving in the end after a shot by Ioana Bortan. There was no other score and the match ended with a classic result 3:0 in favor of Romania.
