What alot of people donot know is that Sarina Wiegman prepared the team for a different kind of opponent. In the Euros and during qualification for the WC they played against teams with the will to play soccer with an open mind. However in the WC it was anticipated it would be a completely different MO the opponents would use. Tight backlines/bunkering and playing the physical card to stop the Orange Lionesses. So in the build up to the WC preps were focused on dealing with that different MO and keeping to the script of how to decompose that. The last test in that respect was the practice match vs Australia that truly brought to the table everything with respect to physical play, rough and exhausting. The Orange Lionesses srtuggled with it the whole match, but also brought to the table what was expected from them, deal with it and in the end take the win home.
