As a referee Clemens Turpin of the game with the final whistle put an end, the statistics spoke a clear language. The Netherlands had filed 10: 2 goals, they had developed a clear plus in the 90 minutes in terms of ball possession (65 percent), and they had won the majority of two-fighting (63 percent).
It was a strange scenery on Tuesday evening from empty ranks in Rotterdam, in the end but the victory of the Local was completely deserved. Orange had determined the game against Norway from the beginning and brought the World Cup qualification under the roof and subject with the 2-0.
Glamour was what the team of Bond coach Louis Van Goal was delivered, but as I said. During the 70-year-old sitting on the tribune, his team dominated the game, but rarely came to chances. A harmless header of Delay (13th), a flat shot of Danuta (26th), once again a header of Delay (27th) and a little later a spacer shot of the 27-year-old (40th) — more it was not what The Netherlands brought about the first 45 minutes.
Oranges game with the fire
The Local would have sufficient a draw; But because Turkey went to the parallel game in Montenegro after an hour in the lead, it was clear: a goal for Norway and the Netherlands would be suddenly only third in group G.
But: The Scandinavians were simply destitute. Except a safe conclusion of the substitute Thirsted (55th), Orange did not matter and decided the game in the final phase for himself: First, Begin met after a pass from Danuta with a rich shot under the lath (84th), then deeply sat down a long run of Begin the final point (90. + 1).
Thus, the Netherlands won a weak football match 2: 0 and cheered Norwegians had to leave Turkey the play-off precaution.
