Frank de Boer had a bad feeling about his debut as national coach of the Dutch national team. He did point out on Wednesday after the 1-0 practice defeat against Mexico that the upcoming international matches are more important.

‘Great debut Koopmeiners, Wijndal could be better’

The Orange, which will visit Bosnia and Herzegovina in the Nations League on Sunday and plays an away game in Italy three days later, started the game in the Johan Cruijff ArenA uncomfortably.

“Only after 17 minutes we started playing better between the lines, but I think we had a chance and a half in the first half”, De Boer admitted to WE. “Mexico made fewer mistakes and then you are in the best position.”

“Of course I have a bad feeling, because I always want to win. But it is also clear that we did not aim all the arrows on this game and that is logical. The next two international matches are more important. Moreover, I am not the first national coach to be. loses first international match, I think that’s almost a tradition. “

De Boer surprised with his first line-up as national coach of Orange. He let AZ players Owen Wijndal and Teun Koopmeiners make their debut with a basic place in the empty Johan Cruijff ArenA.

Wijndal had a hard time, especially in the opening phase, De Boer also noticed. “It is also not easy to make your international debut. I can still remember my own debut and was glad that it was over. Owen recovered well afterwards, but could be much better.”

Koopmeiners formed the midfield with Georginio Wijnaldum and Donny van de Beek. Remarkably, Frenkie de Jong stayed on the bench throughout the game.

“He had a bit of pain in his leg and did not feel very well during the warm-up. So why would you take a risk? Of course he is very important to us, but then you are doing Koopmeiners short. He has a very good match. played.”
