Stefanie van der Gragt has after a disappointing season full of injuries a lot of extra meaning in the world CHAMPIONSHIPS with the Oranjevrouwen. The defender of FC Barcelona’s hopes in the final tournament in France will finally be able to show.
“It might take a while, but luckily I’m there again,” said the 26-year-old Van der Gragt, who, despite her limited playing time this season just before the world cup was selected by national coach Sarina Wiegman.
“I have long gekwakkeld. First time with a tendon injury and then I tore a muscle in my thigh. Be fit, not fit, well, not; so it went on all the time. Mentally, that was heavy.”
