Netherlands outclass Copper Queens in maiden Olympics match

The Netherlands completely outclassed 104th-ranked Zambia with a record 10-3 win in Miyagi, with both sides making their Olympic football debut.

The Europeans Champions put the contest to bed after racing to a 6-1 half-time lead with star attackers Vivianne Miedema and Lieke Martens leading the way.

Miedema scored four to help the Netherlands surpass the 8-0 tournament record scoreline set by Germany in 2004 as the Dutch striker matched the four-goal haul of Birgit Prinz set in that same match.

Zambia captain Barbra Banda scored an impressive hat-trick becoming the first Africa Female footballer to score three goals in a single match.

Zambia will now face China in their second match on Saturday 24 July, 2021.
