The Netherlands Women vs England Women: After edging past against the English lass in the reverse fixture, rejuvenated Dutch women will take on the British women in a highly-anticipated second-round clash at the Wagener Stadium in Amstelveen.
Talking about the last fixture between the two sides, it was a searing clash between the holders of the two biggest titles in world hockey. Both teams looked agile in their approach despite taking the field after a six-month hiatus courtesy of the coronavirus pandemic.
It took more than just full time to separate the two sides in the previous game. Pien Dicke’s second-minute strike for Dutch started the proceedings, but Jo Hunter came with an equalizer in the final quarter of the game. The two teams had to settle with one-goal apiece, and the match had to go into the shootout.
In the shootout, the hosts came out all guns blazing and eliminated their opponents with ease striking the net thrice in the first three instances. Meanwhile, the British women were hoping for a miracle, but couldn’t produce something like that and managed only a solitary successful hit into the net. Eventually, the exhilarating contest went in favor of the hosts as they manage to take a comfortable lead in the shootout with a scoreline of 3-1.
The opening clash between the two sides left the fans awestruck, and with the expectations sky-high, yet another intimidating contest awaits at the Wagener Hockey Stadium in Amstelveen.
