The Red Flames have won their penultimate group match in the preliminary round of the European Championship with much force majeure. However, a match between Lithuania and Belgium could hardly be called a problem. After 21 minutes it was already 0-3, before half an hour the 0-4 was on the scoreboard. And so it went until 0-9. A textbook example of one-way traffic against Lithuania, the group’s weak brother.
“I want to see everyone sharply from minute 1,” said national coach Ives Serneels before the match. The message had gotten across to the Red Flames, as it was not even a minute to wait for the first Belgian shot on goal. Serneels had to wait a little longer for the first goal, but the second and third followed quickly.
De Caigny and Cayman missed opportunities, so Wullaer set a good example. The West Flemish shot a free kick against the nets after ten minutes. The start of an easy evening for the Red Flames.
Although the Flames didn’t need help, the Lithuanian Lioezinaite handed out a gift anyway. She made an own goal and got the 0-2 to her name. Her teammate Gedgaudaite clearly did not want to be inferior and moments later headed the 0-3 in her own goal. De Caigny scored the next two goals and put the 0-5 halftime score on the scoreboard.
As if that wasn’t enough, Lioezinaite also took her second yellow card before half time. Lithuania was not involved in the second half either. Goalkeeper Justine Odeurs was able to go home without taking a shower. She barely hit a ball, let alone make a save.
In the first leg, the Flames easily won 6-0. They clearly wanted to beat that score and they did. Via De Caigny and Wullaert it eventually became 0-9. Both were good for a hat trick.
Tension against Switzerland
On December 1, the Red Flames play the match of truth against group leader Switzerland. The Swiss also won their penultimate group match and count one point more than Belgium. On the final matchday, it is therefore decided who will definitely go to the European Championship. The group winners are automatically placed, but the three best runners up can also go to the European Championship in England.
