Van Marwijk: our tournament isn’t over just yet
Netherlands still hasn’t gained a point in their account but still has the chance to qualify into knockout stage. Dutch team lost to Germany last night and shocking defeat in their first match of the euro campaign.
Netherlands head coach had interview with NOS recently and Givemegoal.com have presented here some of hos words:
Talking about the game with Germany.” We put in a good performance in the opening 20 minutes and got some decent chances. But you have to be at your very best if you want to beat Germany. Some of the players are struggling with their form. The German goal came out of nothing, [it] was a fault from us, we were too open in the center. We gave them too much space. In the second half we wanted to correct this and brought on Van der Vaart and Huntelaar. We played all or nothing in the end and made it very difficult for Germany, We tried to force something in the closing stages of the game, and we could even have scored a second goal with a bit more luck. ”
Talking about their little hope to get qualified into next round Marwijk said.” No, our tournament isn’t over just yet, I don’t think that Germany will throw the game against Denmark. That doesn’t happen at this level. We have to come up with something to beat Portugal 2-0.”
Holland will play against Portugal in their last group match of the tournament.
