The Oranjevrouwen have Monday in Zeist for the first time a training with the full world cup selection finished. That means that Shanice van de Sanden and Lieke Martens are members of the team of national coach Sarina Wiegman.
Van de Sanden (Olympique Lyon) and Martens (FC Barcelona) were last week still facing each other in the Champions League final. Lyon won the final battle in the Hungarian Budapest easily with 4-1.
Also Martens’ team-mate at Barcelona, Stefanie van der Gragt did in that final, but the defender played as a substitute just ten minutes and closed last week at at the Oranjevrouwen. Van der Gragt missed this season, a lot of duels by injuries.
