Davy Klaasseen scored the second goal for Netherlands as the team enjoyed a comfortable victory over Spain, which is struggling to get to their victorious form. Two goals were scored in only three minutes, which put Netherlands on course on an easy victory by 2-0 against Spain. Hereunder are some points on Tuesday’s match, which was a friendly, in Amsterdam.
- Spain got stung by swift Dutch Start
The goals in the outset of the match at minute 16 from Stefan de Vrij and Davy Klaassen were rather easy for the team to dump out the away side. Neither team impressed over much after that goal. The home side were so exhilarated to hold onto their early lead while the away side huffed, puffed, and made their chances to score. However, the away side’s effort seemed useless and they got no way in to get strike into Netherland area. Spain ever really showed the intensity or organized play to get a way through the home side defence. Just before the game, Spain had been keen to play down the idea that it was all about revenge from the torturing 5-1 defeat they received when both sides met in their opening group game in the last World Cup. And there appeared to be no sense of La Roja having their victorious stung and looking to show that they were coming back to their former performance and control as well as confidence.
- No Omen of New Spain Yet
As warned or promised in the pre-game, Vicente Del Bosque made an entire changes to the squad that apparently stumbled to a 1-0 Euro 2016 qualifier vitory over Ukraine on last Friday night. The team were supported by just center back Gerard Pique and Midfielder Isco, who kept their starting spots. There were no debuts for Malaga forward, Juanmi, and Sevilla’s winger, Vitolo. However, neither really showed great performance so as to suggest that they were an astute option to break into the die ahead of the upcoming European Championship. In the biggest moment, Juanmi, who is only 21 years old, mistimed a pass when he should really have delivered Isco clear. The other debutant, Vitolo, looked even more out of his depth, particularly when firing wide when unmarked 12 yards out when the team sought in vain to get back into the game in the second half. The chance for Vitolo was created by Alvaro Morata who replaced Juanmi to play during the last 30 minutes and made a positive difference immediately.
