National coach futsal players speaks of a missed opportunity

National coach Max Tjaden of the futsal players spoke of a missed opportunity in the defeat of the Netherlands against Serbia (2-3). Due to the defeat, the Orange held next to a ticket for the quarter-finals of the European Championship futsal in their own country. “If there was a day we could grab them, it would be today,” the coach told the NOS. “This is not nice.”

The national coach saw how his footballers took a good lead in the first half and even “a little happy at 2-0” in the second half. “Everyone was super happy and we thought we could at least get a draw,” he said. “And then some things happen and we are at 2-3 in no time.”

According to Tjaden, the difference between the teams was in small things. “If you see how the goals are falling. We have the ball and lose it and they are suddenly two against one or even three against one. Those things can be decisive in futsal.”

Shortly afterwards, goalkeeper Kuijk was mainly in disbelief. “We were so close. I can’t believe it yet. We gave away that lead so quickly,” said the goalkeeper at the NOS. He kept the lead for the Orange with a few good saves. “I would have given it to us, we have all worked so hard together. I am very proud of those boys, but we are now empty-handed.”
