Although the goal in injury time Myron Boadu resulted in a victory of Young Orange over France, the twenty-year-old striker actually did not hit the ball well. Boadu shot the ball with his heel, which gave him goalkeeper Ilan Meslier.
“These are the best goals. Everyone could only see that I didnt hit him top,” says Matchwinner Boadu in front of DeccEits camera. “I hit him a little with the heel. I couldnt do many other things, either. Maybe it was the right thing to do, because I got the ball over the goalkeeper anyway.”

Boadu was good for all two goals of Jong Orange against the peers of France, making the team of Erwin van de Looi go to the semi-final of the European Championships against expectations. “Everyone said France was the top favourite,” says the singular Orange-International. “We assumed our own strength. The difference wasnt big, thats how it felt to me. We have shown that we can achieve results through hard work.”
After the competition, the joy came loose in the dressing room of Jong Oranje, says Boadu. “There was a little party. The trainer just said right away that we have to go on again. In three days we have to stand there again.” Dan Jong Oranje plays the semi-final of the European Championships. Germany or Denmark will be the opponent in this.
