Coach Ronald Koeman is counting Sunday on a moving opponent in the european CHAMPIONSHIP qualifier against Germany. In terms of tactics, he keeps up with all the scenarios into account.

The 56-year-old coach sees in the Germans are always a tough team. The German coach, Joachim Löw works with quite a rejuvenating selection for the european CHAMPIONSHIPS of 2020. He said goodbye to veterans like Mats tiny toddlers, Jérôme Now, and Thomas Müller.

Koeman saw what some parallels with the Germany of today and the Orange at his appointment a year ago. “They are now also in the change, try a number of systems and choose for the development of young players. The choice was here or something easier.”

By the many, rotating, both in terms of players and in terms of tactics, know Koeman still not how Germany Sunday to kick off appears. “They played at home with an attacking midfielder against us, while they are out with the point backwards played. They also have five men in the back played.”

“But we are all prepared, we know what we must do,” continued Koeman. “Germany remains, however, an opponent with great players, which the us very difficult. They play with a lot of movement and can also be very offensive play.”

‘Return Memphis speaks for itself’

The coach wanted Saturday at the press conference still a little lost about how Orange itself will take office in Amsterdam. “I know that, but I’m of course still not say.”

But it is clear that Orange in excellent shape condition. “We radiate more security than Germany, maybe sometimes a little too much”, as referred to by Koeman on the many frivolities against belarus (4-0 victory). “That is nice if you have a 4-0 advantage, but it happened too fast.”

Many of the hakjes came from the foot of Memphis Depay, who with two goals and two assists the luminary was against belarus. Koeman is especially full of praise for his aanvalsleider.

“He gets on us a lot of freedom and feels therein good. He has a lot of fun. Of course, it is not always hosanna, there are always things that can better. But its performance speaks for itself. He fills his role great. Hopefully he keeps that which is full.”
