Van Hanegem: ‘Couldn’t look at it, happy if it’s about football again ‘

Willem van Hanegem has not been impressed by the Dutch team after the previous international period. De Kromme also looked up from the coverage of Friday‘s World Cup draw.
Orange practiced against Denmark and Germany and the vote afterwards was rather positive. ‘
The Dutch team is impossible to count among the favorites in my view at the World Chp‘, however, Van Hanegem counteracts in his column for the Algemeen Dagblad. ‘I haven‘t forgotten that first hour against the Germans last week. We were played color blind, with our new ingenious game system. And the Germans lacked about five more permanent forces, huh? ‘
Van Hanegem does not want to count too early for the World Cup, where the Orange has to deal with host country Qatar, Senegal and Ecuador in the pool phase. Winning Qatar will succeed, but Ecuador will be a tough one. And Senegal is even more than that. Those guys are so incredibly strong. And they have great players. When you play against that, every duel hurts. Senegal is also not afraid of our new system and that so-called ‘Lvg pressure.
Around the draw, attention was also paid to human rights in Qatar, while Ronald de Boer recorded it for the country where he lived. I’
ll be honestly happy if there‘s really kicked off and we can talk about playing football again, says De Kromme. I couldn’t look at it anymore. The World Cup will be in Qatar in November and if we hadn‘t wanted all of that, the time of allocation (in 2010, ed.) was the time to let you hear. ‘
