The Yellow Tigers got their teeth into the final game of a Nations League shot and they managed to close it off with a beauty. Our women’s national team beat Canada by 3 to 0 winning groups.
Yellow Tiger Celine van Gestel looks back with relief: “First of all, we are really happy that we won this last match and that we can finish the tournament with a victory.”
In the second set we started serving well and we can play our game
“I think everyone is exhausted now and ready to go home, but we really had fun today. I think we didn’t do well in the first set.”
“But in the second set we started to serve well and were able to play our game. I think that was the main reason for our victory.”
