    National coach Mark Parsons chooses Jill Roord in the striker as a replacement for the absent Vivianne Miedema.

    The latter gets some rest due to her busy schedule and enjoys a short vacation.

    Roord has mainly played as a right winger in recent international matches.

    Daniëlle van de Donk is now on the right wing, while midfielder Victoria Pelova makes her basic debut and Merel van Dongen is the left back.

    Orange Women's line-up: 

    Van Veenendaal;

    Folkertsma, Van der Gragt, Nouwen, Van Dongen;

    Greens, Pelova, Pointed;

    Van de Donk, Roord, Martens.
