The Netherlands are looking to further defend their European title as they take on France in the final quarter-finals of Women’s Euro 2022.
With Germany awaiting a winner in the semi-finals, tonight’s game between the teams has an enticing history to it.
The French lost on penalties at Tampere Stadium in 2009 and the Dutch believe that could give them a psychological advantage.
“We wanted to win the group and we did that after two games. [Against Iceland] I was able to give other players playing time, that went very well,” says France coach Corinne Diacre. “We don’t have any new injuries so we have 22 players available for the quarter-finals and that’s important. We play with great attacking players up front who create a lot of chances and now we have to be more disciplined.”
“We play against great opponents and so do they. I don’t think they want to play us,” said Dutch coach Mark Parsons. “[The last time we met] The result wasn’t what we wanted [a 3-1 defeat in February], but we said that the next time we played them we were confident we would be better. We saw opportunity.”
