“A crazy situation”, says Van den Berg. “With six points after two games, you’re usually sure of the next round, but in this crazy pool not. But well, that keeps us nice and sharp. I want to go with nine points.”


Point of care towards the duel with the Belgians is that Orange Thursday against Denmark, a very weak second half delivered. It was mainly to keepster Sari van Veenendaal, thanks to which the Danes do not have at least a point and got.

“In the first half we had control, I did not expect it in the second half, as would tilt”, look Of the Mountain back. “Of course, went to Denmark opportunistischer play, with a lot of long balls. But it is too easy to achieve our own weak game good to talk to.”

“The organization was gone, and through carelessness, we held the ball more in the team. Against Belgium should absolutely not happen again.”
