THE 10 OF 2006

Mighty Oranje. Why oh why?!!

# NUMBER 6 :
2006 FIFA WORLD CUP

PORTUGAL IS THE NEW ENEMY.
OH! Come on... we've been robbed, man! Let us hear what the players said after that agonizing match :

Giovanni VAN BRONCKHORST
" It was a crazy game. We put in a lot of effort in search of victory. It’s hard to take being knocked out of the World Cup, after creating plenty of chances but failing to take them. We had no luck at all. The Portuguese defence kept it very tight. Being sent off the field isn’t a great feeling. "

Robin VAN PERSIE
" We’re all very disappointed about not getting through. We weren’t the weaker team. The most important thing was the support we received from our fantastic fans. "

Mark VAN BOMMEL
" We were delighted about making the last 16 after the group we had, but this was a match we should have won. It was the best we’ve played in four matches and we didn’t deserve to lose. We had the better goalscoring chances, but we didn’t take them. "

Andre OOIJER
" My feeling is we were the better team in the second half. It was an undeserved defeat. We’re headed in the right direction, but we’ve missed our target of making it into the next round. That’s a shame. "

Wesley SNEIJDER
" We’d rather have played badly today and won, and made it through to the quarter-finals. "

Edwin VAN DER SAR
" We fought hard and we should have won. We had far more chances in the second half. "

Ruud VAN NISTELROOIJ
" We’re angry and disappointed. We had plenty of chances, but that’s football for you. It’s awful sitting on the bench. You’re a fan and a player rolled into one. "

Kenapa kau ajer yang tak turun... wahai Marco Van Basten ku?
