Over the last year my interest has risen in women football. Granted, also as a result of some success and perspective from this NT. Women football is on the up in the Netherlands and I thought it deserves it's own thread. I start out with 1 thread for all women NT's, if it catches on and gets enough attention, more threads can be created. As of now we are half way the crucial qualification games that should lead to the WC that is played next year ion Canada. We just beaten Scotland in the first set of pay off games, now we play Italy in the second set: As Cruyff always says, Italy can't win from you, but you can lose from them. Would be typical to slip on this banana peel after a good qualification process so far. This was our result in the group: Norway was finalist in the last Euro in 2013: Netherlands was last in the group back then with the 2 finalists (tough luck): So obviously we did well in the group for example to beat Norway in Norway: And yes, Netherlands also beat Portugal with 7-0 in an away game. Portugal was even beaten 2 times, so obviously the men have to watch the women to see how you get such a job done. Anyway, next up is Italy: Let's Go.
