The Orange Women do not top the group in the 2023 World Cup draw in Australia and New Zealand. After the last international match, in which a match against Zambia was canceled and lost to Norway, the Netherlands slipped from sixth to eighth in the world rankings.
National coach Andres Juncker’s team was scheduled to play a friendly match against Zambia on October 6, but that match was canceled due to visa issues with the Zambian players.
Then, Juncker used Tuesday’s match against Norway to try out new players on the team. The result was a 2-0 loss.
Six to eight
The Orange Woman cost two places in the world rankings. And those were important places, because they are now in the World Cup draw, which will take place from July 20 to August 20 next year, and not in Pot 1. So there is a good chance that the Netherlands will equal at least once. strong country.
The top six in the world rankings (America, Sweden, Germany, England, France and Spain) and the two organizing countries (Australia and New Zealand) are the group heads, the Netherlands at Tier 2.
The draw will take place on Saturday, October 22nd.
