Martens proud that they trust Pointed has performed at free-kick

Lieke Martens is happy that they have the trust of captain Sherida Pointed Saturday, has performed in the 2-0 win semi-final against Sweden. The left of the Oranjevrouwen scored on The Vijverberg after 33 minutes from a free kick, while Pointed, is actually the specialist is.

“I asked Sherida or I him could take and she said yes,” says Martens for the camera of NUsport. “Then I had to show that I was worth it. In any case, between the posts.”

The 24-year-old Martens placed the ball neatly into the far corner and put Orange on a 1-0 lead. “The players of Sweden stood very much to one side. On the other hand, I saw them not, so I knew that the ball there was. And luckily it was in it,” said Martens, who in the previous match against Belgium, also all is accurate.

“I’m sitting in the tournament. This form should I stick in the direction of the semi-finals. But above all it is a team effort that we’ve come so far. We have z’n all done.”

The semi-final against Sweden was extra special for Martens, because they are the past four seasons at club level played in the Scandinavian country. This summer, she drew at FC Barcelona.

“I have a very nice time in Sweden and know a lot of players. For the contest, it was therefore already special for me. And of course it is fantastic that I decisive could be, though that may be a nuisance for my former teammates. But they said afterwards that we deserved to continue.”

In the semi-finals awaits Orange Thursday England or France. Which two countries Sunday in the quarter-finals facing each other.

“I’ll go tomorrow just quietly find out who the next opponent is,” says Martens, who has a slight preference. “France is this tournament less in a flow than England, but it makes me not very much.”
