High decided to Play in Rio all to stop as international

Cubits High made Friday known immediately to put an end to her interlandloopbaan and had her decision been more or less for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro taken.

“I think it’s been lovely. For the Olympic Games in Rio, I knew almost for sure that I was going to stop,” said High, who is still a year held at her club, Amsterdam, for the camera of the NOS.

“During the Play I went to doubt, especially after that silver medal. But I have so many awards to get caught, so I leave it there not depend on.”

High won with Orange gold at the 2008 Games in Beijing and 2012 in London. They played a total of 232 international matches and made therein sixty goals.

The player from Amsterdam, which debuted in 2004 at the age of 17 for Orange. She was two years later, world champion with the Netherlands in Madrid. Her second world title she conquered two years ago in their own country.


Although next year the european CHAMPIONSHIP takes place in Amsterdam, saw High end, no reason to make her career in Orange to renew. “Give everything and go for it, I can see that not sitting. It is also not fun for the team to only one year to go. Equally the european CHAMPIONSHIPS and then stop. No, I will not.”

Despite the departure of Naomi from the Axis, and the temporary break of Eva de Goede (sabbatical), think High that there is no reason to panic for the Dutch team.

“It will be allright. There are fixed or new people. Young actresses. That is, in the past, also went well, so that will now also do so.”
