Born in Valkenswaard, Eindhoven, Netherland’s skillful number 10 has played club football in Holland, Sweden and England, making a name for herself as a creative playmaker. A great lover of the traditional dutch snack hagelslag (chocolate sprinkles on toast), Van De Donk was honoured with the Order of Orange-Nassau along with her Netherlands team-mates for winning the 2017 European Championship title. Indeed, she played a pivotal role in the tournament and will be hoping to do the same this summer at the World Cup.
