Grzyb was completely heartbroken after the game against Sweden and my heart broke for her too. She had truly given it her all. And that idiotic teammate of hers that straight up KICKED a Swedish player to warrant a suspension just when Poland was about to turn the match around deserves to be banned for life on grounds of stupidity.

I've always thought that Kristina Liščević was boycotting the NT, but it turns out she wants to play, but the current coach has never contacted her and she doesn't know why she's being excluded.

I'm honestly surprised so many big names are throwing in the towel with the Tokyo Olympics being this close. There's Sand, although in her (?) case it's a bit more understandable, Alm and now Groot. None of them have won an Olympic medal and it's not an impossible goal, so I'm a bit perplexed they're not willing to stick around a bit longer.

I can understand the decision and the explanation of Groot very well. The schedule is overloaded, Gyor, CL and national team, the more you play the more pain and a chance you will face an injury, look at what happened in the last week of EC 2018, an injury and a ridiculous schedule. She is now 30 years, in a few months 31 years old, she makes a clear choice to extend her club career, besides she also said "the club pays my salary".

It 's sad for the Dutch NT, with Groot (and Broch :oops:) a medal on the 2020 Olympics would be a realistic goal, without Groot and Broch (and a new coach) even qualifying for the Olympics is not straightforward.
Delaila Amega is on the position of Groot a good substite but she is young and unexperienced, Polman is a good option as well, but Groot is difficult to replace,
