“I’m not frightened of the French. I know how good they are, because I see them sometimes on tv play. It was about what I expected it to be, but that does not mean that they are piece for piece much better than the players in the Premier league. They are bigger, stronger and have more technical skills,” says The Young, that the ninety-minute perfect in Paris.
It was remarkable that the 21-year-old De Jong in the Stade de France just dared to dribble and risk put in his game, as he is that Ajax does.
