Strootman, who in the absence of Arjen Robben and Wesley Sneijder aanvoerdersband wore, wanted the defeat, however, not due to the not given penalty kick by Skomina. “Of course it is nice if he did give, but we have plenty of opportunities had and that we had managed to shoot.”

The midfielder of AS Roma and saw it especially in the first half did not go well with Orange. “We gave a defensive little off, but in possession of the ball we have too little. We lost often quick to the ball, so we are behind France, had to walk. That took a lot of energy.”

“That energy, we missed this at the end of the contest. When we no longer had the freshness and the sharpness to be all or nothing to play. France is actually individually stronger and atletischer. A pity that we the difference could not create as a team.”
