Why Was Holland Eliminated?
Simply put, Bert Man Marwijk. Holland boasts one of the best teams in the world in terms of lineup, playing style, and offensive vision; but Marwijk´s defensive style gave them 0 points in the euro, and he was also the main person responsible as to the demise of the team in the finals of the last World Cup.
How is it possible that the coach doesn´t play with van der Vaart only until the final game of the group stage? How is it possible that he places him as a double 5 way back with de Jong instead of teaming him up with Sjneider? How can he keep some old players that I will not name on the starting grid and use fresh legs such as Affelay as 20 minute men when they have pretty much no hopes left? Why would he place van Persie behind Huuntelar and not use them both as double nine´s when van Persie was one of the best if not the best player of the last Premier League season?
It has to be said, my girlfriend´s platonic love, Christiano Ronaldo played a massive game. Hitting the post twice, scoring, placing awesome passing. I can’t deal with his arrogance but he was superb in this game outshining even Van der Vaart
Enough of this idiot, let’s call Frank Rijkaard.
