Netherlands march on to the European Cup Final

WSP 8385 110621 - Netherlands march on to the European Cup Final - After having brilliantly secured their place in the last four, the Panthers could approach this derby of the flat countries without any pressure. Indeed, the meeting was unbalanced on paper between the world number 1's, who have dominated women's hockey unchallenged for more than 10 years, and an ambitious Belgian team, but in full reconstruction, and too happy to finally obtain results after so much years of famine. But this observation did not mean, however, that the Belgians were going to approach this meeting without a certain appetite, on the contrary. Raoul Ehren wanted these players to play the blow to the full, first, to have fun and then to already prepare as well as possible for the duel for 3rd place, this Sunday, if the semi-final did not turn out to their advantage.

No final for the Red Lions, beaten by the Netherlands

B9727328534Z.1 20210610231042 000GC0IA5LB0.2 0 - No final for the Red Lions, beaten by the Netherlands - The poster for this semi-final was obviously enticing. A classic of recent years. A meeting between the Netherlands and Belgium always smacks of powder given the rivalry between nations. But this semi-final also meant the start of serious matters for the Belgian players who were well aware that their performances during the group stage could have been a little more successful. And it was the flock of Shane McLeod who also took the initiative and who were the most dangerous during the first period even if the score was still 0-0 when returning to the locker room.
