Orange and Germany know each other well. A year ago, both teams faced each other at the European Championship in France. At that time, the Dutch team, which was then led by Helle Thomsen, won 27-21. With that, the Orange qualified for the semi-finals, in which it lost to the later champion France.

With those four points in their pocket, Orange has good papers to join the top three countries in this new pool. That is important, because if it succeeds, the Netherlands will receive a ticket for the Olympic qualification tournament. If it ends with the best two, the team will advance to the semi-finals. Only the world champion immediately qualifies for Tokyo 2020.

As a result, the team went on to the main round as a group winner. Because each country takes the points against other countries that have qualified for this phase, Orange is already at the top with four points.
