Wüst and Dumoulin herald definitive Lioness selectionApril 11, 2019
By Tim Reedijk
Cheyenne van den Goorbergh (FC Twente) and Aniek Nouwen (PSV) were there in the last practice stage – with two victories over Mexico (2-0) and Chile (7-0) – but they were in an individual conversation with Wiegman informed of the fact that they are on the stand-by list for the World Cup.
They were therefore not at the festive moment a moment later. The injured Stefanie van der Gragt (FC Barcelona) and Victoria Pelova (ADO Den Haag) were called in with a video connection and were allowed to watch the party "live". "We wanted to make it a festive moment," said Wiegman. ,, We have made a starter video for the World Cup with players and other top athletes who have performed quite well. As? Ireen Wüst, Tom Dumoulin. And it stays nice with us. "
Wiegman wanted to announce the selection early, to create clarity and to "take the emotional moment farther away from the tournament." Because the conversations were tough, that much is clear. ,, You touch people. You know how hard they work for it, "says Wiegman, who speaks of" a new phase "with the final selection. ,, We now gradually know what the preparation looks like. It is really going to itch. "
