Noppert talks about the Orange penalty test: “I thought: damn, thats right”

Andries Noppert can still dream of a place in the Dutch national teams World Cup selection. National coach Louis van Gaal called him for the Nations League duels with Poland and Belgium and then the 28-year-old sc Heerenveen goalkeeper was also subject to a penalty test.
Van Gaal enlisted the help of specialist Peter Murphy to scientifically determine who should stand below the bar in the Orange during a possible penalty series at the World Cup. They want to see if that works, says Noppert in Omrop Fryslân
s Sportcast. We did tests to see how you work. It has to do with the brain. Then they can see how you work.
Noppert describes himself as quite sober, but he was surprised by the results. When he told me how I work, I thought, damn, thats right. How do I work then? I cant tell you that yet. That has yet to come true, he laughs. During the test, Noppert managed to reverse one of the five penalties: that of Ajax midfielder Kenneth Taylor. Remko Pasveer, for example, failed to reverse a penalty.
The fact that Noppert was called up for the Orange last month, he had never stopped to think beforehand. He may now also be able to prepare for the final tournament. Theres only one thing I can do and thats a good keeper. For the rest, I cant control it. De Fries did himself a good service in the Eredivisie game with sc Heerenveen from PSV. However, he was surprised by a shot by Cody Gakpo: 0-1.
