Jackie Groenen is proud of her two goals against Estonia on Friday (7-0 win).

The midfielder hardly ever scores for the Orange Women, but in the European Championship qualifying match in the Hitachi Capital Mobilty Stadium it was hit in both the first and the second half.

"In the break everyone was a bit shocked because I had scored once", says Groenen with a smile.

"It's nice to be on the form once too. And twice as well."

The 25-year-old Greens played her 63rd international match against Estonia.

Although she made the winning goal in the semi-final of the World Cup against Sweden (1-0) last year, the goal counter was only at three until Friday evening.

In comparison, fellow midfielder Sherida Spitse scored ten times in the European Championship qualification in the past year alone.

"I would have liked to add one more against Estonia, then I would have doubled my total number of international goals in a match", says Groenen.

"But yes, two is also a lot for me."

'You don't just walk over it'

Partly due to her two goals, Greens had a large share in the big victory of the Netherlands, which was good for securing a ticket for the European Championship in 2022 in England.

The Orange was much stronger against Estonia - as in every match in qualifying - but according to Greens, a monster score is not self-evident against such an opponent.

"People think that we just walk over this. We have to, but that is not easy. Estonia only wanted to hold back and then you will not just get through. But we kept the pace high and you can still get a good score. We can be satisfied. "

The Orange squad will play in the European Championship qualifying again next Tuesday.

The team will visit Kosovo and then a big win is again the goal.

All eight group matches so far have been won by the vice world champion, resulting in a striking goal difference of 36 for and three against.
