Ronald Koeman has still more how he, the Dutch team wants to play and is expected after the next four oefeninterlands his ideal set-up to have found.
“We have four games and then I want a very clear picture. Though there are not very many question marks,” said Koeman Sunday at a press conference in Zeist.
“We have initiated with the matches against England and Portugal. We now have two matches to make the picture even clearer, though it is already pretty clear how I want it and with whom.”

“After the last two international matches, is there a bit more clearly. In particular, in the way of play,” said Koeman. “We are going to continue in the system with three or five defenders, just how you look at it. The interpretation thereof may change compared to the opponent.”
Although Orange is missing on the world cup, the national coach felt that the players that qualify for the Dutch national team more motivated than ever to show themselves.
“I have the impression I have – although the season is over – people have to want to, because we are trying something new. we are trying something new and happy to be there. I have seen Luuk de Jong and Steven Bergwijn is absolutely the impression to be dissapointed that they had to cancel due to injuries.”
Koeman has anyway, trust in that Orange again in the future and a meaningful role to play. “There is still talent and we have players that have a clear contribution at large clubs. In particular, Liverpool”, that he meant on Virgil van Dijk and Georginio Wijnaldum.
“That the Champions League final are going to play is great for them. These are experiences where you as the player huge and can transfer to the rest of a group.”

The former international will use the next duels to a lot of players to see the work, among whom are Club Brugge-captain Ruud Molder, who for the first time in the selection of Orange. “I know Ruud from my time at Feyenoord. You will always follow the players if they under you have had,” said Koeman.
“He has a very good development, and is important in his club. I’ve also seen play. If there is a time for him to call, it is now.”
