You usually wouldn’t expect to meet opponents like this until the knockout stages. But even if it goes badly it won’t be the end of the world, because we still have two more matches to come. Spain represent an ideal opening test, because we’ll know at once where we stand,“ the man capped 99 times by the Netherlands said in a FIFA interview. “Our first game is against the team we played in the final match at the last tournament. But it’s not about taking revenge for our defeat in the 2010 Final, it’s a completely new game.” via –
