Two days after the lost World Cup final, the Orange Women in Zeist have finally closed the successful tournament in France. Back home and family, just on vacation. No extensive honoring in the country. It's been nice.
"A homage fits in my eyes with winning, with first place", captain Sari van Veenendaal explains the feeling of the players of Orange. "I'm done with it. It has been a great tournament and we have been together a long time. It is really time to go home."
Farewell in Zeist
The Orange could have been honored today. With one mind, the players decided not to. They said goodbye to each other at the KNVB campus in Zeist. With a bit of a double feeling.
Jackie Groenen, who shot the Netherlands against Sweden against the final: "I am happy that I can go home, but it is a pity that such a cool phase is over. We have been together for about eight weeks. That is long It was already family, now even more. "
