Coach Ronald Koeman of the Dutch national team saw Friday after the 0-1 defeat in the Johan Cruijff Arena against England plenty of improvements.
“We had trouble to create something, especially because we are a little less ‘stuck’ to the ball than England,” he said in front of the camera Veronica.
“But well, I’m not surprised. It was very strange when we now all of a sudden England of the mat had played.”
Koeman was very pleased with what his team in a defensive sense, showed, certainly considering the fact that for the first time in a 3-4-3 formation was played.
“The organization at the rear was well, England has not much created. The back three were good, and Hans Hateboer was also more than sufficient. Matthijs de ligt, I found actually the best man on the field.”
“We will be Monday against Portugal with the same eleven to start, but I see no reason for the system to change. We have to look at how we, in particular, attacking going to drop.”
