During the last international match, Van der Gragt (30 years old) was honored for her 100th international match. Now the football star has announced that he will retire after the World Cup finals for both his country and Inter.
“After the summer, I can look back and remember my successful career in which I experienced everything I wanted to experience as a professional footballer. Great journey! I will do everything in my power to finish the season well at Inter, but also to have a good time,” Van der Gragt noted. “He is with the Orange Lewinen national team to provide the best performance. “After the World Cup, it’s time for new challenges.”
A new challenge in AZ
Van der Gragt has had a great career. She played successively for the clubs AZ, Telstar, FC Twente, Bayern Munich, Ajax, Barcelona and Internazionale. In addition, she has played 101 international matches so far and scored 12 goals.
The central defender can also look into the living room for the well-stocked cupboard. She won the English Premier League three times, the Dutch Cup twice, became European champion and finished second in the 2018 World Cup.
AZ were quick to sign the retired Van der Gragt. The defender will establish a women’s branch in Alkmaar, which will be taken over from the Alkmaar Amateur Club.
