Frenkie de Jong believes that the Dutch national team has shown on Wednesday evening in the Nations League match with Italy (1-1) that it is still a good team. The midfielder was surprised last week about the negativity surrounding the Orange after a few lesser results.

‘We don’t feel like it’s bad’

The Netherlands lost 0-1 to Italy in the Nations League at the beginning of September and the first two matches under national coach Frank de Boer were not won. In an exhibition game, Mexico proved 1-0 too strong last week and the Dutch did not pass Bosnia and Herzegovina on Sunday (0-0), which increased the criticism.

“The match against Bosnia was disappointing, because we should have won it. But it is not the case that we were in a dip. People talk to us about that, especially you (media, ed.)”, De Jong said after the game with Italy – those last words with a small smile – against the WE.

“It is not the case that we got out of the leg ourselves, but in the Netherlands there is such a mood that it is over and that we as players are overestimated. That is a bit fast. but now we have shown that we are just a good team. “

Although De Jong was surprised about the criticism in the media this week, he has no problem with it when there is negative talk about Orange. “You have a lot of analysts and they may also think something about it. That is not bad at all. Only a kind of mood is created among the people that it is bad. But we don’t feel that.”

The Netherlands came out a lot better against Italy than in the last two duels with Mexico and Bosnia and Herzegovina. National coach De Boer opted for a system with five defenders in Bergamo, which made the Orange less vulnerable than in the first meeting with ‘La Squadra Azzurra’.

“I think we had a good plan and it was difficult for them to play through it. Last time we got into really big spaces defensively and I think we had it better now. Still, I feel like there were had been more into it, “said De Jong.

Due to the draw, the Netherlands is in third place in group 1 of the Nations League, with only two games left. Only the group winners of Division A qualify for the ‘Final Four’.
