The Orange Women will start the friendly match against Poland with Esmee Brugts on Tuesday (kick-off at 8 p.m.). The left back has recovered from an injury and takes the place of Kerstin Casparij, who starts on the bench.
The Netherlands-Poland starts on Tuesday at 8 p.m. in the stadium of Sparta Rotterdam. The game is the penultimate game for the Orange in the Netherlands before leaving for Australia and New Zealand, where the World Cup will be held from July 20 to August 20.
Remarkably enough, Vivianne Miedema is a spectator at the match against Poland, which did not qualify for the World Cup. The all-time top scorer joined the Orange Women on Sunday at the invitation of Jonker. She will miss the World Cup due to a serious knee injury. According to Jonker, her presence has a “positive effect” on the group.
