The making of Anouk Hoogendijk

We visit the grassroots club where one of the Netherlands' top female stars began.

Anouk Hoogendijk was a key member of the Netherlands side that upset the odds to reach the semi-finals of UEFA Women's EURO 2009. The UEFA Training Ground speaks to the Bristol Academy WFC midfield star about the realisation of a childhood dream and meets the coaches at the tiny club where she began her career.
