sport“>“You also know that not all arrows are aimed at this match. They are aimed at the coming duels ”, said De Boer in front of the camera WE. “I don’t think I’m the only coach who lost on his debut.”
sport“>”The result is unpleasant,” continued De Boer. “But it was a practice match. You could give as an excuse that not always the best guys played. We know that someone like Frenkie de Jong is very important, he was missing. But let’s not forget that Teun Koopmeiners played a very good game in the middle. ”
sport“>About Owen Wijndal, the other debutant, said De Boer. “He started a bit rough, that is possible, but I thought it was very good how he fought back. My first international match as a player was also not great and afterwards I thought, we just had that. ”
