As great as the expectation from the main game, so great is the disappointment. France was indeed offensive, but van Bruchn easily thwarted their meager attempts to conquer, while his team, the Dutch, looked for long minutes of the game as the ones who would be happy to take the point and take another step towards the round of 16. Even though she had already scored (Simmons, minute 69), it was from a different position and the goal was disallowed.
