“A minute later, you stand with ten men. That was a very disappointing minute”

Stefan de Vrij also reigns defeat after the defeat of the Dutch team. The defender did not feel that the Czech Republic would just be overwhelmed, but did not expect it.
The demasque of the Netherlands has arrived hard at De Vrij. Czech Republic has a good team, it‘s a unit. We knew it wasn’t going to be an easy match, but were confident in a good result. Unfortunately, we‘re not here with a win. There wasn’t much going on. You can see that details make the difference in such matches. Unfortunately, it fell in the wrong direction for us, De Vrij says to Decceit.
In the second half things went wrong for the Netherlands. Donyell Malen missed a mega chance, a minute later Matthijs de Ligt got red. We certainly could have done more. In the first half we got some chances and gave away a chance. We started well in the second half, but left to get 1-0. A minute later, you stand with ten men. That was a very disappointing minute.
De Lit took the blame afterwards. Before his age, he has a great sense of responsibility and is extremely mature. He‘s been around for a long time and has taken great steps. It’s a top defender. This is very hard for him too, but I‘m sure it will make him stronger. We tried everything to the end. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out.
