Wijnaldum doesn’t believe that Amber has straightened against Bulgarians
Georginio Wijnaldum refused Sunday after the 3-1 win in Bulgaria to join in the euphoria of a large part of his team-mate in the Dutch national team. The midfielder had the beating of three days earlier, and against France (4-0 defeat) is still not forgotten.
“We have the French no opposition can offer and have therefore no chance of them lost. You can also now not going to say that this victory something right. Only the three points counted. How we packed up, made some not,” said Wijnaldum in the catacombs of the Johan Cruijff Arena.
The situation was there in the second last round of the European CHAMPIONSHIP-kwalificatiezone not much better for Orange. The number two in group A Sweden won with less than 0-4 of belarus, which the team of coach Dick Advocaat a backlog of three points and six goals must be productive, and the Scandinavians in each case to take part in the play-offs.
“When we were in the locker room heard that Sweden with 0-4 had won, it gave an uncomfortable feeling,” said Wijnaldum. “We have done everything to be as thick as possible to win Bulgaria. Actually We are punished for the race of Thursday.”
And so realize Wijnaldum, if no other, that the Netherlands in the remaining duels with belarus and Sweden the start command waiting state. “The opportunity is indeed getting smaller and smaller, we get it. But there is still a chance so we need to have confidence in continue to keep. If you do not have one, it is anyway absolutely nothing.”

Wijnaldum is also too early to say that the leak in the Orange top is by the victory at Bulgaria. “You need not so much to one game to watch. We have often had is that we have a duel badly played and that the game is a few days later, suddenly much better. It is important that you do it over a longer period of time.”
Wijnaldum admitted that it was difficult for the button to convert the failure in Paris. “But we had to quickly by. We know what to do now and we’re going to try to do so. It is to be hoped that Sweden is not very often going to score against Luxembourg.”
The netherlands continues the kwalificatiecampagne on October 7, with a uitduel with belarus. Three days later, the probably-winning game against Sweden on the program.
