Lieke, congratulations. Player of the Match, and you scored both goals. How do you feel about it? And what do you want to tell girls who want
to follow in your footsteps? Of course, it feels great. It was a very difficult game. We got a good 1-0 lead, then it was 1-1 and we had a very difficult
time, and then there was the penalty. That was a very exciting moment. However, for all the girls who want to play
football, I would say: don’t be afraid and have faith. Believe you will score that one goal. That’s what I did today. Was there a moment that changed the game? Well, we dominated the first half, I think. We were playing well. You could see that Japan were pressing in
the second half and that they were better. They had some big chances, but we were a bit
lucky today. Thanks, Lieke.
