Andries Jonker calls up the Dutch women’s team with two new features

This Friday, Andries Jonker announced the call-up of the Dutch women’s team for the Lionesses’ last matches in the qualifiers for the Women’s World Cup in Switzerland. The big problem lies with Daphne van Domselaar. The Aston Villa goalkeeper is not physically available for the game against Italy.

In the friendly match that the Netherlands played against England, Daphne van Domselaar was also not on the field. For the match against Italy, it is already known that Daphne van Domselaar will not be able to play. Expectations remain for the duel against Norway.

Caitlin Dijkstra was not called up because she is injured, so Daniëlle de Jong (FC Twente) was called up. Lize Teun Koopmeiners (Leicester City) and Jacintha Weimar (Feyenoord) were also called up.

In the previous match, Daphne van Domselaar also missed the game against Finland at home. Daniëlle de Jong was placed on the field as goalkeeper for the Netherlands. In the next game, it was Lize Kop’s turn to start.

The news on Andries Jonker’s list was the call-up of Chanté-Mary Dompig (AC Milan) and Chimera Ripa (PSV).

“Chimera Ripa is a striker, who has courage and looks for the dribble. And he also dares and has demonstrated this in training and in games. Chanté-Mary Dompig plays a more free role on the left side for AC Milan. He can also play in this role for the Dutch national team” said Andries Jonker.

The Dutch team is in first place in Group A, two points ahead of Norway and Italy, and three points ahead of Finland. Only the two best-ranked teams in the group qualify directly for the World Cup. The teams that finish the group stage in third and fourth place will still have the chance to compete in a playoff.

The Netherlands will begin seeking their direct place in the World Cup against Italy, next Friday, in Sittard-Geleen, at the Fortuna Sittard Stadion, home of Fortuna Sittard. If the Netherlands win, they will have stamped their ticket to Switzerland. The game against Norway will be on Tuesday, July 16th, away from home.
