‘Very weak in the third quarter’
“In the third quarter we played very poorly,” top scorer Stephanie Vanden Bure realizes.
“We were late in every game. Lack of focus and energy. This should not happen again, we have to maintain our level for 60 minutes.”
“We needed some time to get into the match,” says Dutch international Laura Nonink. “Because we were on the field with a lot of new players. Because we haven’t played together since mid-October and our last match against Belgium”
“It makes sense that it took a while to find each other. After the break it was better,” you know.
