Can anyone help with results and any other details from an international tournament held in Sardinia in June 1991?  The following countries were present (that I know about).  Most, if not all, of these teams were national teams.  Poland, Romania, Greece, Canada, Soviet Union, Bulgaria.

The details I have:
22.06.1991 Poland 4-1 Canada (in Villasimius)
25.06.1991 Poland 2-0 Greece (in Pula)
26.06.1991 Romania 2-1 Soviet Union (in ?) - Russian sources also give the score as 3-1 to Soviet Union
29.06.1991 Poland 0-0 Romania (in Nuxis) (semi-final?)
30.06.1991 Bulgaria 2-1 Romania (in Lunamatrona) (final?)

It's possible other teams (not necessarily national teams) were present.  From the dates above, it seems there was possibly a group stage (22-26 June) followed by finals matches (29-30 June).

Before going home, Greece later played a friendly match v Italy on 03.07.1991 (losing 6-0 in Viterbo).

First impressions are that Canada did not use their national team (they wouldn't be expected to lose 1-4 to Poland, as Canada are one of the better women's national teams).

For what it's worth, the Italian FA's website lists the match against Greece as having been played on the 3rd of May (a Friday), though a July date would probably have meade more sense in preparation for the upcoming women's Euro.

There's also mention of an Italy 4-1 Yugoslavia played on the 23rd of June, but on the mainland (Umbertide), so unrelated to the tournament.

Other FA's websites have not been helpful.

I've some issues of the magazine "Guerin Sportivo" from that period, but unfortunately beginning from mid-July 1991, and the only thing I've found is an article about the Italian participation in the European Championship. Pity that the interesting Sardinian newspaper "Unione Sarda" doesn't propose a digital archive.

As to the game Italy-Greece 6-0 in Viterbo, I just can say that also this website reports May 3, 1991 at 2.30 pm.
