Judith Pietersen cheers on Oranjes as Netherlands shine at FIFA World Cup
News from the clubs

Sopot, Poland, June 19, 2014. The Netherlands are shining since the start of the FIFA World Cup in Brazil and the “Oranjes” can count on the passionate support of Judith Pietersen, their countrywoman who last season played for Atom Trefl SOPOT in Poland. The Netherlands started their campaign in Brazil with a shocking 5:1 victory over reigning champions Spain before claiming also their second game of the prelims with Australia. Pietersen is following the World Cup very closely and cheers on her compatriots from back home as many other Dutch fans are doing these days.

“I am following their matches and I am quite optimistic after our game with Spain,” Pietersen says. “After such performance I expect and am confident that the Netherlands can win this tournament.” That would be the first time in history since the “Oranjes” lost three finals, two back in the ‘70s (1974 and 1978) and four years ago admitted defeat to Spain as the World Cup was held in South Africa.

After their terrific performance in the remake of the 2010 final, the interest around the “Oranjes” has literally boomed in the Netherlands. “Whenever our soccer team plays, the whole country gets crazy,” Pietersen reckons. “Everyone wears orange outfits, the cars are decorated with our national flag and some other orange gadgets. You may even buy orange food! Especially after our 5:1 victory over Spain, everyone here is convinced that we will become world champions by the time the tournament draws to a close in Rio de Janeiro.”

After a very long and exhausting season where she participated also in the 2014 CEV DenizBank Volleyball Champions League, Pietersen is aware of the physical strain that her countrymen will have to stand: “I think that Arjen Robben and Robin van Persie are bearing most of the pressure,” she acknowledges. “But in their match with Spain they showed that they are in great shape.”
