I don’t want to say anything in advance (about tactics or how the game works). When the opponent аttacks, we have to step back, hold our position and vice versa. The most important thing is to find a way to put pressure on the opponent while ensuring safety in the home field.
In my opinion, the Netherlands is a team that has a balance between аttack and defense. In a match, the players always have to give their best for the team. In modern football, all players have to attаck and defend together.
I’d say it’s just a sports game after all and at the end of the 90 minutes we hope that the team will be satisfied with the result. If not, the whole team is also satisfied because they gave their best.”
