The Netherlands women's national football team said that they have recovered their «flow» at the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup, after feeling the «pressure» from being European champions.
Speaking at a press conference in Lyon on Monday, Netherlands forward Vivianne Miedema said, «At the Euros, no one expected a lot from us. And once we started winning, our country stood behind us, and we just... Еще kind of got in that flow.»
She went on to say, «Obviously, we've come here and in Holland everyone said, 'Oh, they'll be world champions,' and that gave us a lot of pressure.»
Miedema noted, «I think the first couple of games we didn't always play the best football, but we've still got nine points in the Group. We are still in the semi-finals right now, so I think you can say that we are back in that flow.»
The Netherlands are set to face Sweden in a semi-final match on Wednesday. The winner of the Wednesday game will play either against England or the US.
