26 'GOAL Netherlands!


This is a goal to get through a ring and that is thanks to Vivianne Miedema, the all time top scorer in England.

The striker serves Jackie Groenen with a nice cross, who outwits the Estonian goalkeeper from close by.

The Netherlands can use the abacus to keep up with the score tonight.

24 'Even the man of the virtual sound is fooled by the goalkeeper of Estonia.

He lets the cheering band play when the Estonian goalkeeper for the umpteenth time does not get a cross from the flank under control, but striker Vivianne Miedema is just too late to touch the ball with her feet.

There are spaces all over the field and the players in orange are not hindered on their way to the enemy goal.

    The Netherlands played against Estonia once before in this European Championship qualifying series and that was a match to remember.

    On August 30, 2019, the Orange women did not break the Estonian formation.

    Partly thanks to two goals from Vivianne Miedema and Sherida Spitse, it became no less than 0-7 in the capital Talinn.
