Belgium are in Pool D and begin their World Cup campaign against New Zealand at 7pm on Sunday 22 July before facing the Australia on Tuesday 24 July and Japan on Saturday 28 July.
For the past few years the national women’s team has been attempting to follow in the footsteps of the men’s national team. In terms of weekly training structure there is not much difference, so the progression should be there if they have a consistent focus on delivering quality in all that we do.
“We are on track. Of course, we constantly mirror and look back to times where we did well and where we could have done better. By doing that we keep our focus on improving as much as we can for the World Cup and beyond.” Said Head Coach Nils Thiessen
