Netherlands, Canada, Cameroon women continue World Cup football


This 19 June 2019 Dutch video is about the Dutch women’s football team travelling to Reims in France for the 20 June match against Canada.

Canada is #5 in the FIFA ranking, the Netherlands #9. So maybe one might expect Canada to win.

However, the Netherlands won, two goals to one. The first goal was by Anouk Dekker. Then, Canadian Christine Sinclair equalized. Finally, Lineth Beerensteyn made the winning goal.

This video is the summary of the match.

To celebrate, here are two videos about Dutch birds.

This 2015 video is about Texel island birds.

This 2012 video is called Bird Pool Visitors Veluwe.

And this one about Canadian birds.

It is a June 2019 video about a Baltimore oriole singing in Canada.

This means that both teams will continue to the knockout part of the tournament.

This Tuesday, the Netherlands will play against Japan in Rennes.

Not only the Dutch ‘orange lionesses’ will continue for the World Cup.

In the same group, Cameroon, the ‘indomitable lionesses‘ reached the number three spot, also enough for qualifying for the knockout matches, by beating New Zealand 2-1; by a goal in the very last second of the match.

This video is the summary of that match.

To celebrate, two videos about Cameroon birds.

This 2008 video is called African Grey Parrots waking up in Cameroon.

This 2017 video is about the Grey-necked picathartes in Cameroon.
