The Netherlands had no problems with the fifth in the group. After a quarter, it was already 0-7. Only in the third quarter did the Netherlands have to contend with a goal. The counter on the Dutch side stopped at 33.
The Netherlands managed to make good substitutions against South Africa and all the players got a lot of playing time. It was also remarkable that all players, with the exception of goalkeeper Joan Konders, scored a goal. Martjee Koning was the strongest in the Dutch national team with six goals.
On Sunday, August 1, the Netherlands will play their last group match against Canada at 8:30 am. The Netherlands are already certain of their place in the semi-finals, but they must rank as high as possible in the group to avoid rival America. After a loss to Australia and a beautiful victory over Spain, the Netherlands are second in the group.
