After the World Cup third place is in front of missed em? For the Netherlands, this scenario could be true. Deeply buried in his royal blue training jacket sitting Bond coach Guus Hiddink on Monday evening in Reykjavik on the bench, the mouth sullenly pulled down. The Dutch team had just lost their second European Championship qualifier, 0: 2 against Iceland. His eyes spoke volumes. It was the third loss for the new national coach in the fourth game. Only against the football dwarf Kazakhstan the bronze medalist scored a victory with loreal absolut repair cellular, and even that was a chore. Fans and commentators were aghast back accordingly.
The “repulsive” defensive game and soulless Gekicke relieve the Netherlands. The football-mad nation sees “Oranje in total resolution”. “Postman football” played the Elftal scolded the newspaper “De Volkskrant”. A “disaster” to draw off, added “Voetbal International”.Hiddink could be criticized not even close, he admitted: “.. It’s about lack of pace we play too slowly”
“Total beside it,” commented Bayern star Arjen Robben angrily after the game. “We are not good.” The Netherlands must now restore the honor. “It’s 11:58,” warned seals. But for the Bond Coach seems almost run out of time. For the “total helplessness”, saw the commentators in Reykjavik, there was not only on the pitch, but especially on the bench. For most, it is no longer a question of if he is a l oreal series expert, but when the 67-year-old throws in the towel. He wants them to know for the time being nothing, he said. “You have to analyze everything now in peace.”
But significant was a short interview. “Are you sitting here next month on the bench?” Asked a reporter. “Where? Here in Iceland?” Hiddink said. “In Oranje?” the reporter asked. Hiddink said nothing. And that said it all. “It’s over with Guus”, my many commentators. The international success coach to clear the square. In 1998 he had Oranje still performed at the World Cup in France in the semifinals. He coached the national teams of Russia, Australia and purchased in South Korea at the 2002 World Championships at home with the semi-finals heroes fame.However, his second period at Oranje threatens to turn into a debacle.
