The Dutch media spared praise for Louis Van Gaal’s charges after a certain 2-0 win with Poland in the fifth round of the League of Nations.
“Rock solid defense”
The Dutch defenders made the Polish attackers despair. From time to time, Piotr Zieliński and Lewandowski tried to push the last line, but Jurriën Timber, Virgil van Dijk and Nathan Aké were not embarrassed and with the help of Daley Blind, Denzel Dumfries and especially Frenki de Jong, they played easily under insufficient pressure.
“Oranje after the victory in Poland almost certainly in the Final Four”
The victory in the League of Nations group is almost certain, the goals in Warsaw were beautiful, but there were losses for the Orange team – injuries of Teun Koopmeiners and Memphis Depay. However, they did not overshadow the otherwise excellent victory over Poland: 2-0.
“The Poles allowed almost everything, so the Netherlands played the ball endlessly, using wings, technical advantage and learned positional play”
“Louis van Gaal’s team radiates bravado and confidence”
