Vivianne Miedema is pleased to see them Saturday in the quarterfinals against Sweden (2-0) finally accurate was the EK. The tip of the Oranjevrouwen made the second goal at De Vijverberg, after there in the days before the debate took its rise.

“Fine that he is in it, now it is whining away,” said Miedema, who is the world cup in Canada two years ago ended without a goal.

One of her accusers was Daphne Koster. The former captain of Orange said in the NOS that maybe it was time for a another striker, because Miedema’s status as a doelpuntenmachine again not has performed.

“There are more people that have called,” says Miedema. “But the coaches, the team and I have never doubted. The criticism did not much with me. In previous contests I got barely any space, and that space was on the wings. But against Sweden received Shanice van de Sanden and Lieke Martens right back cover and I got off. And that had an effect.”

The goal of the 21-year-old Miedema, her 42nd in total, in Orange, was a intikker. “Martens gave the ball well and deep, after which Van de Sanden perfect voorgaf. I could him so typing”, describes Miedema the goal.

“When the ball it was, there was relief and discharge. But mostly because it 2-0, and we was therefore the last twenty minutes easier could play football.”


Miedema: “We can’t wait for the semifinals

No beer

After the final whistle in Doetinchem in the netherlands was the celebration on the field and in the locker room of Orange. The joy in the dressing room was, however, for a large part to Miedema past, because they have a doping test and it took a long time before they get enough splash.

More than two hours after the semi-final if they pass the stadium exit, while the team bus long gone. “I couldn’t do it. Unfortunately I have no beer, I had it with water and coffee,” she says with a smile.

During the long wait, she saw the disappointment in the Swedish players, who were also called up for a doping test. “It sounds silly, but there I was very happy next to. It was also a nice moment to be back on my phone to look. Of course it goes over that I scored I did, but everyone is just happy that we are in the semi-finals.”


Lieke Martens: ‘we were with z’n all done’


Opponent in the semi-final, which is Thursday in the Grolsch Veste in Enschede, the netherlands played, England or France. Miedema says not to have. “They are both top performers, and of a different caliber than Sweden. Thus, We will not be the favourite.”

“Good, let them come. We feel invincible. Confidence is high and that we take to the semi-finals. With 30,000 supporters behind us in Enschede, it can do so. I can’t wait.”

The quarter final between England and France begins Sunday at 20.45 hrs and will be played in Deventer.
