But we did really well. We had those quick set pieces, quick restarts with Thiago, things like that where we were trying to take advantage of these moments. Sometimes you have to wait a little longer. But that it was a set-piece, I don’t think anyone was surprised because our set-pieces were really good tonight and I have no idea why we didn’t score from them earlier, because pretty much every set-piece was a threat. Great goal, then ball not in, then linesman raised his flag, which I really don’t know why; maybe he saw the goal first or he has it in his watch too. Then big celebrations and Joel’s face showed exactly how we all felt at that moment.

It’s the most important. Nobody gets carried away tonight, it’s not like the boys are in the locker room and can’t get their arms down. So it’s more of a relief; we showed ourselves and the outside world we understood, we reacted. The guys really responded, I really liked that. It was a super intense match. But how it is in life, when you have a problem, you want to solve it. If you want to sort it, we as humans hope we sort it right away, ‘done’. So now we’re starting a bigger shift, now we’re working harder again and that means we get everything back right away. But that’s not true.
If you want, the whole story of the game might be a real help. I don’t think we need it, especially now with a two and a half week break until we play again, which is strange. But I wasn’t surprised when they scored, not at all. Not because I thought we defended so poorly that they should have scored, no, just because in situations like this it’s pretty likely they don’t need much. And the goal they scored was incredible. I think pretty much each other’s shot would have saved Ali but this one couldn’t be saved, put in the far corner. Yes, reaction to show that we can still do this kind of thing, that was the most important tonight.Read:How to watch Netherlands vs Ecuador: Watch the World Cup 2022 game on free TV and live stream to day
