The Bayern Munich winger took great pride from their displays in Brazil though, Football Italia quoted Robben: “We’ve done amazingly well to come this far.
“Of course right now I feel disappointment, but we’ve done our best.
“From the bottom of my heart I can truthfully say you can see how everyone was behind the team. I think we can all be very proud of these players.”
Interestingly, the Dutch winner hinted that the Europeans won’t be too bothered about Saturday’s 3rd/4th place play-off.
Robben concluded with: “I think we should quickly change our mindset.”
