Sarina Wiegman has mixed feelings about the 0-6 victory of the Orange women in the European Championship qualifying match on a visit to Kosovo.
The national coach is satisfied with the big victory, but thought that her team's game could have been a lot better in the second half.
"We have scored quite a few goals, but that did not reflect the ratio", Wiegman concluded on Tuesday at the
"The pace went way too far out of the game and we were very sloppy in the second half. Every moment when the ball was out of play, the momentum went out. So we actually didn't get into our rhythm anymore."
The Netherlands led 0-4 in Pristina at halftime thanks to two goals from Katja Snoeijs and hits from Daniëlle van de Donk and Lieke Martens.
In the second half it took until injury time until the score was further increased by Miedema and Snoeijs.
"With 6-0 it seems like we are very satisfied and it was also good", said Wiegman.
"But they are not matches, because the difference in level is so great that we actually know in advance that we want to score as many goals as possible."
Summary Orange Women-Kosovo (6-0)
Wiegman full of praise for Snoeijs
However, the 51-year-old from The Hague praised Snoeijs' performance.
The striker of Girondins de Bordeaux made her basic debut for the Orange women last Friday against Estonia (7-0 win) and thus made a hat-trick in Kosovo.
"With that last goal she was very short and sharp. She did it very well", Wiegman Snoeijs complimented.
"We played with two center strikers this week and that looked good."
Snoeijs herself did not expect that she would be good for a hat-trick against Kosovo.
"We knew that we would play opponents where more goals could be scored, so as a striker I was extra sharp. I had signed in advance that there would be three," said the 24-year-old attacker.
The match against Kosovo was no longer important for the Orange women.
The vice world champion already secured participation in the European Championship against Estonia on Friday, which will take place in England in the summer of 2022.
