Everyone stared into space. Dutch press beats the performance of the stars “Oranjes”

Today, the Dutch press is beating the performance of the “Oranjes” stars for the 0: 2 defeat at the European Football Championship in Budapest and the tactics of coach Frank de Boer. They were allegedly beaten on Sunday by the average Czech team due to the weak individual performance of Dutch players and the wrongly chosen defense system.

De Telegraaf wrote that the “Oranjes” paid the “highest price for the stupidity” of coach Frank de Boer, whom the paper criticizes for his “catastrophic defense system” in a 3-5-2 formation. “For three weeks, the Oranjes have been throwing sand in the eyes of everyone and everyone, including themselves. Except for a party of average Czech footballers. That’s why the Dutch national team can watch the rest of the European Championship on TV at home,” wrote De Telegraaf.

Another large daily, De Volkskrant, stated that the Czechs’ path to success led through the neutralization of defender Daley Blind. The Czech Republic was able to neutralize all the individual quality that made the Dutch so dangerous in the group stage with a simple tactical trick: stop Blinda and stop Oranjes, the paper noted. “In particular, Blind, which is the center of attention in the Dutch game structure, has been subjected to targeted pressure,” wrote De Volkskrant.

The daily Algemeen Dagblad headed his comment: The sad fall of Oranjes makes him think seriously. “Frenkie de Jong, Memphis Depay, Georginio Wijnaldum: Everyone was staring into the stun. The coach of the national team, Frank de Boer, walked quietly to the center circle. match in Budapest.

“Donyell Malen’s missed chance, followed by an unnecessary red card for Matthijs de Ligt, ultimately led to a defeat. However, the elimination was certainly not limited to these two moments: the Dutch team also lagged far behind in the wider world,” said Algemeen Dagblad. “In the first real tournament match, coach and support Oranjes failed on almost all fronts,” the daily also stated, according to which, for example, Memphis Depay played “unimaginably bad” and captain Wijnaldum looked tired and was completely overcome by “Czech star and shooter” Tomáš Holeš.

The Dutch media is already addressing the future of coach De Boer. In an interview with the public television NOS, when asked whether he would resign, he answered evasively: “I don’t have to answer yet. We have to think about it.” In the analysis of the match itself, the coach stated that such a match is decided by one or two moments. “Malen had one. And we were ten shortly after. It’s complicated,” he said.
