Janssen keeps faith in world cup qualification for the Dutch national team
Vincent Janssen has there own say have every confidence that the Dutch national team, despite the precarious situation in which it is located is going for the world cup next year in Russia.
“We have everything still in our own hands,” said Janssen after the 3-1 win in Bulgaria on Sunday in the Johan Cruijff Arena. “We now have two good results. I want to there is no percentage to give, but we’re just going one hundred percent and then we’ll see where the ship runs aground.”
The reality shows that Orange in the remaining two kwalificatieduels with belarus (from) and Sweden (at home) a small miracle is needed to prevent the for the second consecutive time, missing out on a final tournament.
The team of coach Dick Advocaat must have a backlog of three points and six matches to make up on Sweden, with sixteen points, the second place in group A is busy and thus virtually assured of a ticket for the play-offs.
There is a big chance that Sweden in the next game turn even more away from the Netherlands, since the Scandinavians the next moon in own house have to compete against Luxembourg, that Thursday, however, the leader of France (seventeen points) revamp 0-0 liked.
“You may against us that we often had to score against the Bulgarians”, says Janssen. “Also that tegengoal had never allowed to fall. Certainly not just after the 2-0. At that time we had they are. Unfortunately, it was a fourth goal. There we have the next two duels for to make up for that.”

Janssen was of the opinion that he himself could look back on a successful contest. “I am quite happy about my own game. Thursday against France (4-0 defeat) I had and the team an offday. It was nice today to some useful balls to get.”
That the media are skeptical about the chances of the Netherlands for participating in the world cup bothers Janssen somewhat. “There was Thursday a lot of criticism on us. Rightly also. But now we play a good pot against Bulgaria and has everyone talking about Sweden. Finally, we focus on the last two games. That is the only thing we can do.”
Orange continues the kwalificatiecampagne on October 7, with a uitduel with belarus. Three days later, the probably-winning game against Sweden on the program.
