Wiegman was in January appointed as successor in december dismissed Arjan van der Laan. Before that, she was assistant national coach under him.

“The staff, the team, there was from the beginning, so’n click. We have always said that it feels good, but that you have matches still to win,” said the 47-year-old coach, who is in the Netherlands for the first time to the European title led.

“This was the audience a great competition,” said Wiegman about the final against Denmark. “There were two teams against each other who wanted to play football. Teams that are both offensively played, but also space weggaven.”

“That we can still improve the women’s: attractive game and open match with two teams who are both for profit. Ultimately, it falls to our side, and I think that was justified.”
