Arsenal midfielder Daniëlle van de Donk won her 100th cap for Netherlands in a 2-0 Euro 2021 qualifying victory over Russia on Tuesday evening. In a fairytale evening for the Gunners attacker, van de Donk opened the scoring after 12 minutes.

The match was played at PSV Eindhoven’s Phillips Stadium, near where DvD grew up. She was given a special presentation prior to the game and a minute’s applause in the 10th minute (she wears number 10 for her country). She opened the scoring in the 12th minute.

The second goal in the game was scored by Vivianne Miedema. Meanwhile, Beth Mead scored the winner for England as they defeated Portugal 1-0 in Setubol. Katie McCabe captained her country to a 3-2 win over Ukraine, Katie helped herself to a goal and an assist in the match.

She’s 28. But there are far more internationals in women’s football than men’s, it’s fairly common to get over 100 caps. Christine Sinclair has 286 for Canada (though that is a record tbf and not typical).

I think we should give Beth Mead lots of credit for scoring the winning ‘wonder goal’ last evening.
