Match Report

The Netherlands stay unbeaten in Pool C

Article 26 August 2019

This time Jamie MORRISON, head coach of the Netherlands changed four players in the starting line-up. The middle-blocker Nicole KOOLHAS played for the first time in Budapest. Both teams entered the court fully motivated, however from a very beginning the Netherlands were dominated side. Unfortunately, in the first set the captain of the Netherlands Maret BALKESTEIN-GROTHUES suffered an injury of right ankle at 23-16, thus caused several rotations on the court in next part. This situation motivated her teammates even more as during the whole second part the Oranje stayed on the lead. The Croatian team had some impressive attacks, but the Dutch block worked too well. The Croats fought hard in the third set, they saved two match points, but in the end Celeste PLAK’s attacks made the difference. The game lasted for 70 minutes.

Celeste PLAK, outside hitter of the Netherlands:


“I'm happy that we won this game 3-0, because in the past we had some troubles against Croatia, they are not an easy team, and they have really good players. Today we were really dominant, so I’m happy that we kept the pressure high. In the third set they came back a little bit. We let them play, but I’m happy that in the end we could finish this match in straight sets.”

"I think we can be better and a little bit more aggressive in everything what we do. We talked about that during the match. I'm happy, we won three in row, but we can do better. Maret will be fine. She had pain in her ankle, but I think she will be back during the tournament."

Jamie MORRISON
head coach of the Netherlands

Karla KLARIC, outside hitter of Croatia:

"The main reason of this defeat was our bad start, we didn't find the rhythm in the first set, and we were not so efficient in attack. After the first break, we were pushing a little bit more, and we played obviously better. Of course, we are disappointed, because we lost 3-0, but now we have to focus on our next game against Romania."
