Arsenal striker Vivianne Miedema has broken Netherlands’ all-time goalscoring record after netting twice for OranjeLeeuwinnen in their 3-1 World Cup Group E win over Cameroon on Saturday. Miedema equalled the record with a first half diving header from Shanice van de Sanden’s cross.
What a header!

Cameroon equalised before recently departed Gunners midfielder Dominique Bloodworth put the Dutch back into the lead. In the second half, Miedema scored again to break the record. Viv doesn’t turn 23 until next month. She has scored 60 goals in 77 appearances for her country. She has taken the record from Manon Melis who scored 59 goals for the Netherlands in 136 caps.
Topscorer aller tijden: @VivianneMiedema 👏

Elsewhere, Beth Mead notched up another assist for England, setting up Jodie Taylor’s second half winner against Argentina. England assured progression to the knockout rounds with the victory. Leah Williamson was an unused substitute in that game.
🏴 @BMeado9 popping up with yet another assist? Shock 🤷♀️
