Parsons declares


spare role

Spitse

Record international Sherida Spitse is the most notable name missing from Mark Parsons' first starting line-up.

"Given her playing time and training structure after her injury, this is sensible," he explains his choice in front of the

NOS

camera

.

The Brit does not rule out the possibility that the midfielder of Ajax will come into action later.

"She's very important on and off the field. So you'll see her tonight."

The Orange and Czech Republic only played against each other three times in the past.

The last meeting dates from twenty years ago and that was the only time that the Netherlands lost.

On June 14, 2001, the Orange Women suffered a 2-0 defeat under the watchful eye of national coach Andries Jonker.

The FC Groningen stadium is not unfamiliar territory for the Orange women.

An international match has been played in this stadium twice before.

On October 24, 2017, the World Cup qualifier against Norway was won 1-0 and three years later Estonia was beaten 7-0 in the European Championship qualifier.

Setup!

With the Czech Republic, record international Lucie Martínková is in the tip of the attack.

The 34-year-old attacker plays in her own country for Sparta Prague and has now won 109 international matches.

She scored 23 goals in it.

So the 2023 World Cup, that's what it's all about in this qualifying series.

The Orange will compete in a not too difficult group in the coming months against Iceland, the Czech Republic, Belarus and Cyprus.

All these four countries have never played in a World Cup before.

The team of Mark Parsons has already been qualified for the European Championship of 2022 in England.

Parsons may not only make his first appearance with the Orange Women.

Five players hope for their debut tonight during the game against the Czech Republic: Jill Baijings (SGS Essen), Kerstin Casparij (FC Twente), Caitlin Dijkstra (FC Twente), Claire Dinkla (sc Heerenveen) and Barbara Lorsheyd (ADO The Hague).
