Despite Netherlands emerging as the winning side taking on Wales at the Cardiff City Stadium the other night, their boss Danny Blind was not a happy man as he believed it could have been a clean sheet and it’s only because of slight faults in the defence that the margin of win got diminished.
The Oranje saw two goals getting scored against them and both of them were off free kicks which according to Blind, could have been avoided if the defence had been tighter in its work.
In the words of Blind, “To concede a couple in that fashion, it’s irritating and it’s not the first time. Even in the qualifiers, there were occasions when it happened. It’s an area which needs improvement.”
“We had a decent beginning and then we let the momentum slip away and we were actually under pressure at one point of time. So, while, it’s good to win, you also have to be realistic and acknowledge the mistakes.”
