Netherlands came up triumphant against Chile in Pool A of the ongoing Women’s Hockey World Cup, but the match had its fair share of drama as the entire crowd erupted in joy after Chile also scored a goal in the game. It was Francisca Tala who got on the scoring sheet for Chile, and after the game, she ended up proposing to her boyfriend. Speaking after the match against Netherlands, Tala revealed that she had a pre-match bet with her teammates that if she got on the scoring sheet, then she would marry her boyfriend.
“I made a bet with all the girls that if I make a goal against the Netherlands I would have to marry my boyfriend. Yes, he is very happy. He said yes,” she said after the match.
