Ireland defender Louise Quinn headed home the winning goal for Fiorentina to beat AC Milan in the semi-final of the Italian Super Cup.

The former Arsenal centre-half, playing in her first season in Italy, scored the vital goal in the 65th minute to secure a 2-1 victory for the Viola.

AC Milan grabbed the early lead in the cup clash thanks to Valentina Giacinti's sixth-minute lobbed effort, but two second half goals ensured that Fiorentina progressed to set up a meeting with Juventus in the final.

Abi Kim levelled matters in the 56th minute with a scrambled effort at the back post, before Quinn's glancing header from the edge of the six-yard box from a corner secured the win.
