โ€œI thought first, why does he change Blind? But when I saw him, I understood it

The situation around Daley Blind impressed Dirk Kuyt, his old team mate at the Dutch team. Blind played against Ukraine, but revealed afterwards that he was seriously considering not going out on the field. That had to do with the situation around Christian Eriksen and his own.
Blind didn‘t make Kuyt feel like he was insecure anywhere. โ€œIt’s unprecedented how he managed to completely remove the feeling of uncertainty from me,โ€ says Kuyt at Humberto. โ€œHe played a really good game. You just feel the emotion, deep respect for Daley Blind.โ€
National coach Frank de Boer changed Blind after over an hour. The defender was visibly emotioned. โ€œI thought first, why does he change Blind? But when I saw him, I understood that. He also had a very annoying injury and then playing like that, very handsome.โ€
Presenter Jack van Gelder sees impressive photos of Blind with assistant Ruud van Nistelrooij and coach De Boer. โ€œRespect the photographers too. They are always underexposed. They always talk about television and radio, but the photographers sometimes take such great pictures.โ€
