Live ticker Germany – Netherlands (World Cup Women 2022 Spain/Netherlands, Group A)


The Dutch are reigning world and European champions and last year also won the Olympic Games in Tokyo. The neighboring country beat Ireland 5-1 yesterday and thus also had a great start to the tournament. In their own stadium, they also benefit from the home advantage, which they already knew how to use last year at the European Championship.


After the final whistle, national coach Valentin Altenburg only had words of praise for his girls and was satisfied with the first game: “The ball went well, we created a lot of chances and in the end we scored nice goals. I’m very happy with my team, who didn’t have it easy against Chile today.”


After the confident start of the DHB selection yesterday against Chile (4:1), the toughest chunk awaits Germany in the second game. And a look at the balance of the last games shows how difficult the Germans are in the prestige duel: There are a total of 15 defeats against Holland in a row. In order for these statistics to be brightened up today, a performance that is at least as disciplined as yesterday against the South Americans is required. The Danas went at a high intensity for 60 minutes and didn’t let the fighting performance of the Chileans buy their nerve.


Have a nice Sunday evening and welcome, dear field hockey friends, to the second group game of the Dana at this world championship! The German team meets the co-hosts from the Netherlands today at the Wagener Stadium in Amstelveen. It starts at 7:30 p.m.
