Frank de Boer wonders to what extent Bosnia and Herzegovina is waiting for the duel with the Orange in the Nations League. The opponent of the Dutch national team was eliminated by Northern Ireland in the pay-offs for the European Championship.
“I thought they played quite well in the first half, they fell a bit in the second half”, says De Boer at the press conference. “Edin Dzeko was the starting point and was very strong, Northern Ireland had a lot of trouble with that. In addition, Miralem Pjanic was back in midfield, he was very decisive. They were the better team, so this is a very disappointing result for them. . “
That disappointment can sometimes have an effect on Sunday’s game with the Orange squad. “This was the highest for Bosnia: going to the European Championship. They fought for that for a whole year. I can imagine that they are not waiting for this match now, that they are mentally through it after 120 minutes and penalties. On the other hand: they play against the Netherlands, a renowned opponent. So all players will want to show their best side. “
The national coach expects the Netherlands to come out a lot stronger than in the exhibition game with Mexico (0-1). “We have learned from Mexico anyway. In addition, we will now play more in a formation with boys who are used to each other.”
For too long De Boer does not want to dwell on his debut. “We’ve had thirty minutes so far to train tactically, I think. So a baptism of fire like that, should you place a lot of value on that? I don’t think so. Only it makes you wiser. So let’s hope that it will be a lot better tomorrow, I have faith in that. “
