Disappointment dominates at Memphis Depay after the hard-fought 1-2 victory of the Dutch national team against Poland. The striker of Olympique Lyon finds it particularly incomprehensible that the Orange, which missed a place in the final round of the Nations League, fell behind so quickly in Chorzów on Wednesday-evening.
Kamil Józwiak already scored the opening goal for Poland after five minutes after a long rush on the left, where there was a lot of room in the switch. The Dutch did recover and triumphed by two late goals from Memphis and Georginio Wijnaldum, but it was not enough for the group win.
“We didn’t start sharply and that made it difficult for ourselves on such a field. That is annoying and should not be. It must have been very frustrating to watch, but it is also for us in the field,” said the 26-year-old Memphis against the WE.
“It is difficult to play football on this field and the players from Poland played a lot in the duels, but then you have to come up with something to get into that match well. Now we were 1-0 behind after five minutes and the pressure to lie with us. That is a shame and unnecessary. We really need to look at it critically. “
The team of national coach Frank de Boer showed resilience and fought for victory in the second half. Due to Italy’s victory over Bosnia and Herzegovina, the hard-fought three points of the Orange were no more than a scant comfort, as the Italians secured a ticket for the final round.
“We can compliment ourselves for the battle we have done, we have done that with the whole team. But we have been eliminated and so disappointment dominates,” said Memphis.
