The interim national coach of the Dutch women’s handball team, Monique Testermann, has selected, among others, Limburg players Larissa Nouser, Inger Smits and Harma van Krijj.
Handball player Estafana Pullman returns to the Dutch women’s team in the lead-up to the October international matches against Belarus and Greece. She has sufficiently recovered from her knee injury. Pullman will build carefully. She hasn’t played both games yet, but she will continue to practice sessions.
The orange team will be back again next month after the disappointing Olympics in Tokyo, which fell sharply in the quarter-finals to France. It happens without Frenchman Emmanuel Mayonadi, who did not renew his contract as national coach. Monique Tejstermann (among others former coach of the Limburg Lions) has been appointed as interim national coach. It will remain until the World Cup finals in Spain in December.
Tijsterman has 22 players in its squad for matches against Belarus (Wednesday 6 October) and Greece (Sunday 10 October). These matches are part of the qualifications for the European Championship 2022. Louis Abing is the most striking absentee. The scorer is not at his best physically and skips the international matches.
