The Netherlands lift women’s hockey World Cup
Olympic gold medal winner The Netherlands defeated Australia in the title clash at the Kyocera Stadium, Hague (The Netherlands)to win the women’s hockey World Cup.
Out of 13 women’s World Cups since the launch of the event in 1974, the Netherlands have bagged the title seven times. It was a fifth successive World Cup final for the Dutch and remarkably a fourth contested between the two nations, with Australia’s 1998 victory in Utrecht being sandwiched by wins for Netherlands in 1990 and 2006.
