Belgium shock Netherlands as UEFA Women’s Nations League makes its bow

Belgium pulled off a surprising 2-1 victory against the Netherlands to start their Nations League campaign on a positive note and create uncertainty in Group A1.Information Guide Nigeria

The first half of the match lacked scoring opportunities, with the Netherlands coming closest to scoring in the closing seconds when goalkeeper Nicky Evrard saved a low attempt from Lieke Martens. The visitors managed to take the lead at the hour mark with a goal from Jill Roord, but their lead was short-lived as Marie Detruyer equalized just two minutes later, benefiting from a bit of good fortune.

The Red Flames displayed greater discipline and determination compared to their previous encounter with the Netherlands. In July, the Dutch had defeated Belgium 5-0 in their final warm-up match before the World Cup.

However, this time, the Dutch couldn’t secure a victory. Despite their dominance in possession, they failed to capitalize on their opportunities, and the hosts secured a late winner from a set piece, marking their first victory against the Netherlands since 2016. Belgian manager Ives Serneels opted for a five-player backline, supported by midfielders Kassandra Missipo and Justine Vanhaevermaet. Belgium’s resilience prevailed against a more talented and experienced opponent, who had reached the World Cup quarter-finals in August.JAMB Result

“I knew that a good result against the Netherlands was possible, but winning is a dream,” said Serneels.

“We beat the number seven in the world, I don’t think we have beaten a top ten country before. I really enjoyed this match. I haven’t seen the Flames play this well in years. Everyone was good, the collective performance was outstanding. We have quality in our group and can still grow.

In the other match in the group, England secured a 2-1 victory over Scotland, mirroring the same scoreline as the Belgium-Netherlands match. This was England’s first match following their World Cup final defeat, and they couldn’t replicate the level of performance they had during their campaign in Australia. The absence of Keira Walsh in midfield was noticeable. Lucy Bronze and Lauren Hemp scored for England, while Kristy Hanson netted one for Scotland.NYSC Portal
