Shane’s Free Pick
This is going to be a tough fought battle but it’s going to be Spain that is going to find success here. The loss of Danielle van de Donk is a big one for Netherlands and it’s going to end up being the x-factor. The Netherlands offense is going to fail to create many quality scoring chances and that will be the difference as Span is going to get the job done here. Back Spain on the money line to cash.
