Jill Roord will leave the training camp of the Orange Women on Sunday.

The Arsenal midfielder suffers too much from a minor knee injury.

Roord was injured last Friday in the European Championship qualifying match against Russia (0-1 win).

The 56-time international will continue to work on her rehabilitation at her club.

In Moscow, Roord crowned himself the match winner for the Orange Women by scoring the only goal of the match after fifteen minutes.

Fifteen minutes before the end she was changed.

National coach Sarina Wiegman does not add a replacement for Roord to her selection, who will stay in Zeist until Tuesday for a short training period.


Summary: Orange women narrowly win in European Championship qualification

Orange women close to European Championship participation

Thanks to the victory over Russia, the Netherlands is almost certain of participating in the European Championship in 2022 in England.

The losing World Cup finalist is the leader in the European Championship qualifying group and has no less than twelve points ahead of number two Russia, which has played two matches less.

The group winner will go directly to the European Championship in England, which was postponed by a year to the summer of 2022 due to the corona crisis. The number two still plays in the play-offs for a European Championship ticket.

The Orange women will play their next European Championship qualifying match at home against Estonia on 23 October.

Four days later, an away game against Kosovo awaits and on December 1 the qualifying campaign will close at home against Kosovo.
