Somewhat strange question about the Olympics perhaps the headline at the top of this article? There in Tokyo the opening ceremony is not until Friday? This is correct. But: the orange lionesses are actually entering tomorrow’s Olympic Football Tournament.
After the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics, metro Every evening Dutch athletes participate in the next day and at any time. All matches – Dutch times – take place at night and during the day. There is no live Olympic sport on Dutch TV in the evening. Then they lie comfortably on one ear in Japan.
13:00: Orange Lionesses – Zambia
Until the opening ceremony, no Dutch Olympians from TeamNL will be featured at the Olympic Games in Tokyo. Only footballers orange led by national coach Sarina Wegmann. Weigman will say goodbye after the tournament. While the Dutch women water polo will only arrive at the Olympic Village on Wednesday, the lionesses have already begun. This does not happen in Tokyo by the way, but about 400 kilometers away. The Netherlands will meet low-flying Zambia at 1 pm. If all goes well, orange lionesses can work on the goal difference.
I am always with them! Just a little bit away! COME TO TEAM! 🧡 https://t.co/9l4wSLVJ1w
