Memphis: ‘Should have win with 4-0 or 5-0’

โ€œ I actually thought we should have won 4-0, 5-0,โ€ says Memphis Depay after the 3-1 victory of the Dutch team over Bosnia and Herzegovina. The attacker of Olympique Lyon signed shortly after rest for Oranges third hit.

Georginio Wijnaldum put Oranje on track with two goals so the Netherlands still has a chance for the Final Four of the Nations League.

โ€œ We were ready for this victory,โ€ the captain laughed at DeccEit afterwards. โ€œWe had a number of times that we played the second half well, but now we started very well. The second half was a little less, we fell back a bit.โ€

Whatever that came through, Wijnaldum found difficult to say. โ€œWe would like to attack, but we cant do that for the whole game. We lost the ball more often, and we had to go back more often. Of course I had made three of them today, but unfortunately it was not allowed to be the caseโ€, says the man who was exchanged for Donny van de Beek after an hour of playing.

Wijnaldum now stands at twenty goals for the Dutch team. Depay now stands for twenty hits as international.

De Vrij finally has something to celebrate

for Stefan de Vrij the victory with the Dutch team felt extra special. The central defender was already part of the selection that won in 2014 at the world championship bronze, but in recent years had to settle for a role as a reserve behind Matthijs de Ligt and captain Virgil van Dijk.

Last month, due to the absence of De Lie, De Vrij already had basic places against Mexico, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Italy, but those duels did not win victory. With Daley Blind next to him in the center Orange won Sunday finally.

โ€œ There is joy at the result, that first,โ€ said De Vrij. โ€œWe have seen many good things, but also things that can do better. I think weve created a lot of opportunities. We could have made more. At times we played at a fast pace and tried to destroy Bosnia. On the other hand, sometimes we have to be a little less sloppy. We occasionally suffered unnecessary ball loss, which made it open to us. In the changeover we gave away a lot of space.โ€
