Oranje stats impressive

This Euros ended up a disappointment, despite reaching the semis. Sure, before the tournament, everyone would have applauded for a semi spot, but as our route to the semis was pretty easy (on paper), we all expected Koeman and Co to reach that level and we all expected and hoped for better football. Still, the potential is there. So lets look at some achievements. Gody Gakpo is top scorer of the tournament, with three goals. Yes, only three and he has to share the honour with Harry Kane, Jamal Musiala, Georges Mikautadze, Dani Olmo and Ivan Schranz. Lamine Yamal is the assist king of the tourn ..read more

Why Koeman needs to go

This is going against my nature. I don’t think I ever posted something like this. I don’t think I needed to. I thought Van Basten did a good job. Rijkaard could have stayed on. I was never an Advocaat fan, but once these guys lead the team you want to support them. After the WC2010 I was happy Bert was taking them to the Euros. I didn’t support him coming back in the first place. He decided to abandon us before the Euros2020 by leaving us in the hands of Frank de Boer and the shere fact he wanted an exit in his agreement was a red flag for me. I think he’s good to get a team in shape and find ..read more

What Oranje can expect from England

We’re playing against a top team, with absolute word class players but also against a coach who is said to wear a seat belt on the toilet, always going for security. And for a reason. When Southgate was up for the job he asked advise from top data statisticians in football and their response: don’t concede! This nihilistic approach became his mantra. The most criticised manager of this Euros is going to play a semi finals for the third time in a row. Before him, they only reached a top 4 position once since the 1966 World Cup debacle win. Southgate has done away with naive playing and the crit ..read more

Oranje fights itself into semi finals

At some point, you stop worrying about the how and just want to celebrate the result. The first semi finals since 2004, when Portugal defeated us in the semi finals. A great comeback – the first since the 3-2 win over France in 2000 – and it’s always good to win a game when you don’t play great. Oranje’s start was pretty good. Turkey played with 5 at the back and in the first 10 to 15 minutes, our “box” in midfield performed really well. Xavi found space in between the lines, Memphis was threatening and Schouten penetrated well on the right hand side. Memphis had the first chance in the first ..read more

Thanksgiving for Oranje

Let us have some Turkey! A positive Ronald Koeman mentioned that the whole squad is fit again. Bergwijn, who had to be subbed off versus Romania, and De Ligt, who had some muscle issues, are both fit and it feels like we’ll see an unchanged Oranje versus Turkey on Saturday. Confidence is high and it feels like the players are now in the right mood to go and win this tournament. Thank you Austria! But, Turkey won’t be a walk in the park. They always had gifted football players but up until now, no coach managed to give them a structure that works, a framework within which the players could exce ..read more

One of the few players who managed to stand out for SBV Excelsior was Couhaib Driouech. The striker is very close to leaving Rotterdam and signing for PSV. The Kralingers are looking to improve their budget to compete in the Keuken Kampioen Divisie next season and selling Couhaib Driouech to PSV will be key to making that happen. PSV must pay 3 million and 500 thousand euros to sign Couhaib Driouech from SBV Excelsior. The Boerens have not yet reached an agreement with Couhaib Driouech. Initially, PSV is negotiating the purchase of the striker’s rights with SBV Excelsior, and will then negotia ..read more

Go Ahead Eagles have been looking for a new coach for a week, considering that René Hake is about to move to Manchester United. Initially, the Eagles are looking for a Dutch coach with experience and this characteristic fits perfectly with Maurice Steijn. The Go Ahead Eagles board understood that Maurice Steijn would be the ideal name to replace René Hake, but the former Ajax coach chose not to accept taking on the role. Go Ahead Eagles director of football Paul Bosvelt announced that the search for a new coach is not that easy. “We have several names in our heads, but in practice, this become ..read more

Rick Karsdorp could leave AS Roma in the next few days. The 29-year-old Dutch defender has spent the last seven seasons defending the colors of the Italian club. Apparently, the full-back should be traded by AS Roma. This new season will be the last year of Rick Karsdorp’s contract with AS Roma and the Italian board would not be interested in continuing with the player for next season. Rick Karsdorp is no longer part of AS Roma’s plans as they seek to renew their squad for the new season. The expectation is that he can return to the Netherlands, more precisely to Feyenoord, where he was reveal ..read more

This Friday, the Dutch team will do their last training session before the duel against Turkey in the quarter-finals of the European Championship. Ronald Koeman will not be able to count on Ian Maatsen. The Dutch defender is ill and will not travel to Berlin. Ian Maatsen’s absence before the clash against the Turks is the first problem for the player after weeks of good news. First, the youngster was allowed to start for Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final. Then, while on vacation on the Greek island of Mykonos, he received an unexpected phone call from the Dutch coaching staf ..read more

This Friday, Andries Jonker announced the call-up of the Dutch women’s team for the Lionesses’ last matches in the qualifiers for the Women’s World Cup in Switzerland.
