Van Hanegem highlights three internationals: ‘Weghorst should not exaggerate’

In his weekly General Dagblad-column, Willem van Hanegem highlights three Orange-internationals shortly after the general EK rehearsal against Georgia: Georginio Wijnaldum, Wout Weghorst and Cody Gakpo. De Kromme liked the game of the Dutch national team better than against Scotland, but has been watching with mixed feelings.
Against Scotland, according to Van Hanegem, it was ‘pious. ‘ โ€œGeorgia was clearly a little better, although we gave away many opportunities. Yet the level is still that when we play against France, Spain or Portugal, we are being played up‘, he writes. Wout Weghorst’s ecstatic reaction after his first international goal did not like him. โ€œHe made a goal and that was fun. But he must ensure that he demands all that attention, ‘says De Kromme. โ€œFrom the cameras. He should not exaggerate in his behavior. Modesty is important.โ€
However, in the case of Gakpo this does not seem to be the case. At the end of March, the PSV attacker played with Jong Orange in the group phase of the Youth European Championship, was joined in the main force two months later, but sat in the stand during both training interns. ‘
He would have been better off sitting with Jong Orange. They could have used it against the Germans this week‘, concludes Van Hanegem.
Furthermore, old well-known Wijnaldum dominated the headlines this week. The midfielder departing from Liverpool seemed hard on his way to FC Barcelona, until Paris Saint-Germain suddenly offered double what he could have earned in Catalonia. โ€œI don’
t think it‘s strange that you prefer Paris Saint-Germain over Barcelona. It’s better financially, PSG can win the Champions League and take the title. I don‘t see Barcelona doing that,โ€ says Van Hanegem.

A crazy Weghorst has his first goal in Orange! He’s making it 2-0 against Georgia. #nedgeo pic.twitter.com/ylnfoalmtn
