European Football Championship 2008

The Netherlands was the European Football Championship 2008 worldwide as title favorite number one, with two beautiful matches against world champions Italy and vice-world champion France. In the quarterfinals, but it was a Russian machine opposite orange and title favorite was eliminated from the tournament. What brought orange to these achievements and why it was defenseless against the Russians?

The road to the European Championship

Why the Netherlands is playing well? Simply Netherlands have enough quality in the house, so it does well because it has good players. How is it that, in this European Championship was all so difficult? The Netherlands has rarely convincingly played under Van Basten. The qualification for the World Cup it was achieved but stalled World Cup Netherlands in the quarterfinals against Portugal because it could not control his emotions and ended up in an ordinary shovel party. The classification of the Championship was difficult. When finished second in their group behind Romania, the Netherlands. Even Luxembourg proved to be a difficult obstacle!

Where’s the rub

As already mentioned, the Netherlands has enough good players, gaming technology. Players like Wesley Sneijder, Robben, Van Persie, Van der Vaart, Van Nistelrooy, etc. simplistic seen says Jan Mulder?? simply the best preparation you have, no matter what position you put them??. Anyone who has played at the same level or understand football know that’s not how it works. A team will only be more than the sum of the parts when there’s a balance in there. A player can only enter the room when a player is the first to have created this space. In other words, there must be a balance between elegant footballer and disciplined hardworking tactical player. A clear example is Argentina, Maradona. Maradona then had the best in the world, almost a whole team around him who rolled up their sleeves and played football for the result, so brilliant Maradona with Argentina were among the best in the world.

Netherlands no Candidate Advance

Under Van Basten of the Netherlands has earned points, which in itself is quite good as it has always been an imbalance between ornamental footballers and hardworking. After the friendly matches for the European Championship, there were few people who could count to Netherlands real contender in the Championship.Especially considering the strong group in which the Netherlands error.

Tactical And Moral Turnaround

Netherlands – Italy. The Netherlands comes in first in a magnificent performance and sweep the field in Italy. How is it possible, what was so different? First, Marco van Basten has managed together to get the nose one side, it was the hard work of all, the Netherlands was very focused and bleated almost a violation of the counterparty. The morale was good and it is still essential to good performance. Van Basten was equally important that the composition of the team has overturned. There is a development in the international football for many countries, namely that the left side is stronger and is more about playing football this side than the right side. Netherlands itself has been around for years, but both Italy and France has a very strong left wing. The entire right side was replaced. Lightweight Heitinga, de Zeeuw and Robben accommodate the physical strength of the recovered Boulahrouz, De Jong and Kuyt. The Netherlands won the battle of the entrance to the right. Therefore, could the Dutch football side, left side, with Sneijder, Van der Vaart and Engelaar to their hearts and freely football. It was a new Dutch team up and all spoke full of praise.

Russians will

Full of courage through the simple placement, the Netherlands stepped into the quarterfinals, where it comes from Russia. Russia started the tournament poorly with a 4-1 loss against Spain decent, stood up and grew into the tournament. Sweden so she put on very good football. Weather Guus Hiddink had taken a team to the next level.Unfortunately, it was the Dutch national team is no longer fighting spirit that was so crucial to Italy and France.This is partly due to the Netherlands, but also praised the Russians from the minute the Netherlands pressed. It goes too far to develop games of the Russians, it was short, very impressive. But the Netherlands could maintain itself and created still some opportunities.
Hiddink had an extra tactical discovered in his system. He knows that the Dutch strongest defenders named Boulahrouz. The attacks must be done mainly on the right side, where the player plays with the least defensive qualities. Kuyt was also brought to the right as Sneijder was too much on the defensive. Hiddink has his players well to drop the contract Boulahrouz in the possession of the Netherlands because Boulahrouz is not the strongest bodybuilders. This allows the failed building and because the Dutch players who had to split the game was covered briefly succeeded, some in the Netherlands.

Second Half

Van Basten started with the change of Kuijt Van Persie. The miracle child who is still recovering from his injury Netherlands had to give more depth. Van Basten forgot shares Kuijt has mee-defense and as Van Persie no time in the match came was a substantial weakening of the Dutch team. Since Boulahrouz had to leave the pitch with a calf injury, there was no stopping him, the Russians were now not only the right but the left. The Netherlands was completely filled and the Russians came earned a 1-0 lead. The Netherlands did in the last minute is still to make a goal by taking advantage of Russia’s weakness, the set pieces. 1-1 Van Nistelrooy Netherlands still had signed an extension. But this was a respite, Russia went into the extension just playing faster and the Netherlands became progressively slower. Eventually 3-1. The Netherlands was the favorite to win the group matches.

Farewell

Van der Sar who hack a good tournament, bid farewell to the Dutch team. Not the best way “here, I have, of course, all this time waiting for,” Van der Sar in studio football. But none of the players, who burst into tears for the shutdown. Partly because of the loss was evident, the Russians were too good today. What additional factor is that the shutdown is a relative loss in relation to the death of the firstborn daughter Boulahrouz few days earlier??
