Frenkie de Jong is one of the great arguments that the Dutch team has to be able to aim to lift the next Eurocup in 2020. The Barca player spoke brings the last game
The national selection of Holland will be one of which will participate in the next Eurocopa and, by staff, there are not doubts that it will be one of the favourites to obtain the title or, like minimum, to arrive far. Frenkie Of Jong, one of the big signings of the Barça in this 2019, is also one of the key players of the combined directed by Ronald Koeman.
During this stop of selections of November, Holland achieved to seal the definite pass to the final phase of the Eurocopa, although the last duel in the Windson Park against Northern Ireland (0-0) did not show precisely the most brilliant facet of the Dutch. After the meeting, Of Jong subtracted importance to the fault of brilliance of said crash and gave value to the classification.
"All the world is happy, have achieved the classification for the Eurocopa. It was the aim", remembered the midfield player, remarking on the duel against the British, that "do not think that have to be too critical. My feeling is that we would have to have won here. It was not an easy party, but really did not put us problems. All had wanted to win, I the first".
Holland, with said tie, yielded the leadership of the group to the German selection, but to Of Jong little matters him. "It was in the first or the second bass drum, have to win to all to win the tournament ", commented the Barcelona midfield player. For him, the important is to go out champion of Europe in 2020, something that shows his tremenda ambition.
The words of Koeman
The seleccionador Dutch, Ronald Koeman, also valued the party of his team and, although it was critical, also showed "proud and happy with the team, although the party have been to forget. I have seen the meeting that expected. There have been two dangerous moments, but the rest at all. Fortunately they have failed the penalti".
The ex Barcelona footballer commented that "to offensive level, think that could and had to do it better. We are classified for the tournament and this is halagador for the team. Northern Ireland has been the hardest rival of the group with Germany". Curiously, Koeman sounds like future trainer of the Barça if Ernesto Valverde does not continue, by what could joint again with Of Jong in the Camp Nou.
