This is so true. This actually a winnable game for the boys if they calm down and pick their passes systematically.


The problem is at the back. The dutch are finding it easy to cut us open.

We are always trying to hit the "home run" pass...
Instead of just retaining possession and patiently probing the Dutch defense.

We are never going to win this (or any) game on defense...
So might as well exercise some patience in attack and outscore them.

GOOD LUCK LADS...
But frankly it's not looking good ATM.

Sir V,

They could lose this game but make no mistake about it they have been the better team in the opening half. They appear to have the better players and have created better opportunities cutting through the Dutch defense regularly. However, lack the haste in attack is mind boggling and not covering the second ball in defense is bad. However, I must admit that the energy and effort put in trying to tie this game has left the team vulnerable to a Dutch attack (Fortunately, the Dutch have been unable to muster much going forward in the opening half).

Lies...They played well against Hungary.

They are playing better in this game. I have watched all their matches.

Actually they are NOT....
It's been basically SAME as our previous games.

We rush around the pitch and concede from atrocious defending...
Then rush around even more chasing an equalizer and hoping for a win.

These...

Didn't see the first goal...
But most of the Dutch chances have come from that second ball in defense.

Same position as Marez

Final touch killing us as usual. Nothing changed from the huffing and Puffing as seen against the Aussies.

Not the foggiest idea of the modern game. Not even close!

They were asked not to shoot aimlessly at goal.. but now, even with clear shot chance,they just pass the ball

Everything is rushed in attack. Too eager and at real risk of falling further behind on a counterattack

Manu is a stubborn man. I have no idea why he has chosen to bench Ubani. He took him off inexplicably after 30 mins of the second game and hasn't used him since. Ubani is probably the best finisher we have.

Reminds me of the U20 where after the Brazil game, he chose to bench his best players. The man is inept.
