Martens hopes that they can play against Belgium after ‘rottrap’ ex-team-mate
Lieke Martens do not know whether they Monday can play in the final group competition the european CHAMPIONSHIPS against Belgium. The left of the Oranjevrouwen has an ankle injury suffered in the 1-0 victory Thursday at The Castle against Denmark (1-0 win).
Shortly after peace was the 24-year-old Martens hard on her ankle hit by Sanne Troelsgaard. The Danish middenveldster was last season, her team mate at the Swedish FC Rosengard.
“It was a rottrap”, regretted Martens, after a clarification early on Troelsgaard. “They said that they played the ball, but that was not so. It was not nice.”
The 24-year-old Martens, recently for three years laid down by FC Barcelona, the game could continue, but it was twelve minutes before time, still with a painful ankle to the side.
“I tried it out, but it remained stiff. Then it is better to get a fresh someone to throw. For me it is now a matter of repair. I’m going to do everything to be fit for Belgium.”
Martens: “We are going to work hard so that I match fit again ben
Although Orange after two matches without the loss of points to head in group A, against the Belgians still go wrong. If it’s a tie, the Netherlands is definitely of the first place, but a defeat the team of coach Sarina Wiegman drop to the third place and that means switch-off.
“But I’m not worried, self-confidence is after two victories as great,” says Martens, who do not find that Orange on a tie should play against Belgium. “A tip, is what we do not. We want to win.”
The netherlands against Belgium begins Monday at 20.45 hrs and will be played at the Koning Willem II Stadium in Tilburg, the netherlands. The other team contest, between Denmark and Norway, is at the same time finished.
