Due to the injury, Rohrde missed the international matches against Costa Rica and Denmark in November and the second with Austria in February. The national coach called up a rookie to select 26 players along with Wake Captain. Sisca Folkertsma returns to Orange after a long absence. Her last international match is in October 2021. A month later she suffered a serious knee injury.
“Kapten is really one of FC Twente’s engines,” Junker says of the 17-year-old. “She’s so young, but if you play well every week you’re forced to call up the Dutch national team. I don’t know Folkertsma yet, but the pictures I’ve seen of her looked promising. She’s still on the way back after her injury, but we’re very curious to see where she is now.” .
The Netherlands national team will play a friendly match against Germany, ranked No. 2 in the world rankings, on April 7 in Sittard. “With Germany we will meet a great opponent,” Juncker looks forward. “They are held in higher esteem than we are, so this is a perfect testing moment for us to see where we stand. In addition, Sittard has a favorable playing position for both Dutch and German fans, so hopefully the stadium is sold out.” Five days later, Poland became the opponent at Sparta Stadium in Rotterdam.
Lionesses are preparing for the World Cup, which will be held in Australia and New Zealand from July 20. The Portuguese will then meet Portugal, the United States and Vietnam, respectively, in the group stage.
