Today, during the women’s football World Cup tournament in France, the Dutch team beat New Zealand 1-0. By a header by substitute Jill Roord, whose club is Arsenal in London, in extra time.

This video is a summary of the match.

To celebrate, here a video about the Dutch national bird, the black-tailed godwit.

It is a 2015 video about black-tailed godwits in Iceland.

As the New Zealand women’s team are nicknamed the Football Ferns (they also have ferns depicted on their shirts), here also a video about New Zealand ferns.

This 2012 video is called The New Zealand Silver Fern.

The usual Dutch brass band ‘t Spul(t) was present. They played various songs, including Verdi’s Aida triumphal march. And Hup Holland Hup; a song written in 1950 for the Dutch men’s national soccer team. Sometimes the fans started singing it, and then the brass band joined in.
