Player Special vs Norway by 20legend
Player Special - Netherlands
It will be another interesting tournament once again as the women's World Championship kicks off at Desember 6th. In Gorup A we find Montenegro, Netherlands, France, South Korea, DR Congo and the Dominican Republic. Montenegro and France are solid favorites here, but Netherlands has an interesting team going on as well.
Netherlands has a very young and exciting team in this championship, and they surprised big-time by beating Russia in the playoffs. This was a very good result, but we should not forget that Russia has not reached that level they had just two years ago. Nehterlands has got into a very tough group, and with teams like Montenegro, France and South Korea it will probably be a fight for wither the 3rd or 4th spot, as the four best teams in each group goes through to the knockout stage. Therefore they will probably meet a very tough opponent at an early stage of the knockout stages, and it will be hard to see Netherlands going any further than 1/8 final.
However, their left-back Lois Abbingh is one of the stars in this squad, as she presented her qualities already in Brazil two years ago. She will be one of the main pieces in this squad, especially offensively. Even though she did not take a lot of responsibility during the qualification, she always deliver when it counts the most, as against Russia in the playoffs, where she smashed in 18 goals over two games against the Russians. Abbingh is also the main lady when it comes to taking penalties which always will strengthen a tip like this. She is the overall favorite in this squad to be the top scorer, and I certainly think that she will contribute with most goals within this Dutch team, no mather how far they will go.
