About Netherlands Women’s National Football Team

The Netherlands women’s national football team represents the Netherlands in international women’s football and is managed by the Royal Netherlands Football Association (KNVB), which is a member of UEFA and FIFA.

In 1971, the team played the first FIFA-recognized women’s international soccer match against France. They played three times in the final phase of the UEFA Women’s Championship and were champions in 2017 as hosts. They qualified for the World Cup twice, reaching the final of the 2019 World Cup edition, losing 2-0 against the United States. The result of the 2019 World Cup meant that the Netherlands team qualified for the 2020 Olympics, where they lost in the quarterfinals.

The Netherlands was one of several European countries where women’s soccer was banned for a long time and then met with skepticism. The team has grown in popularity during and after their upset home win at Euro 2017.

Netherlands Women’s National Football Team History

On April 17, 1971, the Dutch national team played the first women’s international soccer match recognized by FIFA against France. The match took place in Hazebrouck, France and resulted in a 4-0 defeat for the Netherlands, with goals from Jocelyne Ratignier and Marie-Claire Caron-Harant.

In the 1980s and 1990s, the team failed to qualify for the final tournaments of the UEFA European Championship and later also for the FIFA World Cup. The Royal Dutch Football Association began significant investments in women’s football in the 2000s, culminating in the establishment of the Women’s Eredivisie in 2007 (which merged with the Belgian league in 2012).

This resulted in the team qualifying for a major tournament for the first time at UEFA Women’s Euro 2009. They finished in third place, along with Norway, behind second-placed England and first-placed Germany. The team qualified again for UEFA Women’s Euro 2013, but did not advance after the group stage.

Success coach Sarina Wiegman left the team after the Olympics and was replaced by Englishman Mark Parsons. The Netherlands went into UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 in England with a perfect record of ten qualifying wins. In England, the Netherlands passed the group stage thanks to two victories over Switzerland and Portugal. However, a draw against Sweden meant that the team had to face France in the quarter-finals. Although they only lost in overtime, they were completely outclassed and it was decided to part ways with Parsons.

Andries Jonker took over coaching responsibilities and was immediately faced with a must-win match against Iceland if the Netherlands were to avoid the 2023 World Cup play-offs. In a tense game, Esmee Brugts scored the goal she needed desperately alone in stoppage time and the Netherlands qualified for their third World Cup.
