Arjen Robben praises Netherlands for doing ‘amazingly well’ in 2014 World Cup
Arjen Robben feels the Netherlands have done amazingly well to reach the last four of the 2014 World Cup but couldn’t hide his disappointment at missing out on a second consecutive World Cup final.
Holland reached the final in 2010 but lost in a disappointing fashion to Spain, in a match where their imposed themselves too much physically on their opponents.
Yesterday, Argentina were the opposition but Robben and his team mates couldn’t find a way to get past them and crashed out 4-2 on penalties.
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.”
