Jackie Groenen was the author of the goal that put the Netherlands in the final.
The Netherlands secured a place in the Women’s World Cup final on Wednesday after defeating Sweden 1-0 in the semi-final. Jackie Groenen took the leading role in scoring the only goal of the match that is worth, for the first time in the history of the Dutch team, the presence in the World Cup final.
In a balanced game, the null remained untouched until the end of the 90 minutes, much on account of the guard’s views on the field. Given the lack of goals, the extra time was much more lively.
In the 99th minute, the only goal of the match was scored by Dutchman Jackie Groenen. The header of the 24-year-old advanced only to the bottom of Hedvig Lindahl’s net and solved the match.
In the final, which takes place on Sunday, the Netherlands will face the United States which, on Tuesday, eliminated England (2-1). So the current world champion will face the current … European champion.
