Looked at the coach of the Dutch national team, each week only to his goals, Bas Dost sometimes think. There was never a discussion about him, and he also played the next oefeninterlands against England and Portugal, just as centrumaanvaller for Orange.

Bas Dost wants a move.

Last season, 34 competitietreffers for Sporting in Portugal and now have 23. At his club, the 28-year-old striker guarantees goals. Also Dost not deny that numbers are in Orange until now hardly to the imagination. In seventeen international matches with three basisplaatsen and fourteen games, to score, he came no further than one hit. Only a little over two years ago during a friendly against Wales he found purpose.

“I am also in with an idea to come,” says Dost, as he is with his statistics when Orange is facing. “I’m getting a bit tired of the stories that I was only in Portugal for score and not for Orange. If you don’t score than your striker. So is there now once concluded. I understand that this is the figures of me in Orange. But I feel super good and I would like to show what I’m worth.”

Not Luuk de Jong, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar or Robin van Persie but Dost and Wout Weghorst, the real centrumspitsen of Orange for the training duels with England and Portugal. That is still no guarantee for playing time, because Ronald Koeman would be able to opt for a system with five defenders and only two strikers. And then the new coach might be more to agile attackers as Memphis Depay, Quincy Promes and Ryan Babel.

Dost not yet know what the successor to Dick Advocaat. “But I would like to play, preferably in both competitions,” he says. “But that goes for everyone here, seems to me. The second game against Portugal is, of course, special. It would be nice to have a time against my team mates to play football. But I want especially to ensure that they are also in Orange no longer around me.”
