“I think my own game was sloppy” – Netherlands superstar suggests they were ‘average’ despite 2-0 win over Senegal in the FIFA World Cup

Midfielder Frenkie de Jong has hinted that the Netherlands are not happy with their performance in the 2-0 win over Senegal at the FIFA World Cup. The Barcelona star claimed that they were average and did not play well despite securing all three points.

Cody Gakpo scored in the 84th minute to break the deadlock in the match before Davy Klaassen secured the win deep into stoppage time. The win saw the Netherlands go top of Group A, where they are now level with Ecuador, who won 2-0 against Qatar on the opening day of the FIFA World Cup.

Speaking to the media after the match, De Jong claimed his side were not at their best and added that he was sloppy in the midfield as well. He said:

Speaking about the second half and the nerves going into the final minutes with the scores level, he added:

Netherlands manager Louis van Gaal was pleased with the win in their FIFA World Cup opener. He admitted that the decision-making was poor in the first half but praised the players for scoring the goals.

He said:

Van Gaal continued:

The Netherlands next face Ecuador on Friday in what could be a winner-takes-top spot game in Group A of the FIFA World Cup.
