We shall look at the Dream11 prediction between the Netherlands and Sweden.
Netherlands Vs Sweden Dream11 Team
Sari van Veenendaal: The Dutch goalkeeper and captain has been one of the star performers in the World Cup until date. Sari is the safer bet in this tie in this match. Agile, tall and quick to catch crosses, the Arsenal goalkeeper is my first choice.
Kika van Es: Starting left back for Holland and Ajax, van Es is an absolute machine. She’s fast, agile and her history as a forward helps her take on defenders on the flank. The 27-year-old is a good passer and creates space for her wingers to attack into upfront.
Dominique Bloodworth: Another Arsenal player in this Dutch team, Bloodworth is a boulder of a centre back. She’s very good at winning aerial duels and puts in long balls throughout the match for her forwards.
Linda Sembrant: The Swede is my third choice. She’s extremely physical and strong which is often reflected during matches where she’s winning most aerial duels and bullying attackers. She won 75% of her duels in the RO16.
Magdalena Eriksson: Swedish Left Back Eriksson has started 3 games for her team and has been heavily involved in both attack and defence. She’s quick, versatile and has an eye for pass. Her performance against Thailand was absolutely sublime where she assisted Lina Hurtig for their 4th goal.
Sherida Spitse: Spitse starts as a central midfielder for the Oranje but her incredible work ethic means she’s seen near the box of both ends. Her role is very similar to that of a Box-to-Box midfielder. Spitse completed 100% of her long balls against New Zealand, and won more than half of all her duels. Spitse likes to run to the edge of the flank and put in crosses which gives her an edge over other midfielders.
Jill Roode: The 23-year-old Arsenal midfielder is a super sub for her team. She comes in as a sub in every game and occupies the central midfield spot. Jill has scored one goal in the tournament after coming on against New Zealand. Her ability to act as a dynamic attacker gives her a lot of freedom and she can bail Holland out of a dangerous situation.
Elin Rubensson: Defensive midfielder by trait, Elin can function as both, a DLP and a Box to Box midfielder. She won the man of the match against Thailand scoring and assisting one time each.
Lina Hurtig: Hurtig has started only game for Sweden but has come off the bench in the remaining three games. She has a goal to her name scoring the 4th against Sweden.
Vivianne Miedema(C): 22-year-old Vivianne leads the line for the Netherlands in the World Cup. After an average performance against New Zealand, she scored a brace against Cameroon. She’s a very confident striker and will take any chance she gets in front of goal against what is an underperforming Japan defence.
Stina Blackstenius (VC): Stina Blackstenius has not been at her best in the world cup, but she’s managed to score two goals so far. It has not been easy as he is struggling with a lack of creativity in the final third. But, with an eye on goal, she will prove to be a very good choice.
