In the first round of the European Cup qualifiers that ended early this morning, the Netherlands lost 0-4 away to France. After the game, Dutch national team coach Ronald Koeman also accepted an interview with the media and talked about his views on the game.

Opinions about this game

"When it's 2-0 after seven minutes, we don't have a chance. France are too good for us when you make mistakes like that and lose the ball very quickly. Although in football you always Mistakes are made, but when you see the first goal, that's what the French are waiting for and then they are so good that they are punishing us."

"We conceded the ball twenty yards from our own goal. Then when it's seven minutes into the game, you're 2-0 down. Then they wait for us to continue making mistakes and can fight back. My point is, We made mistakes where we never should. You can make mistakes, but you can't repeat them."

Perceptions of player performance

"I expected more from everyone. It was an unqualified team effort. Against a really good opponent, you get that gap. But it's too big, it's something I didn't expect. Possibly The virus has hit us a bit, but I don't want to use that as an excuse. We didn't live up to our expectations. But we will respond well on Monday."

"The players also know where the reasons are. I think it can have a positive impact, everyone knows where we are lacking. Especially if our squad is not complete, then we have to learn from it."
