What the coaches say

Dwight Lodeweges, interim Netherlands coach: "If I have noticed one thing in training, it is everyone's enthusiasm and eagerness to do things right. Everyone wants to show each other what they can do. There are young newcomers and international regulars in the squad, and they are going flat out. I have not considered bringing in a replacement [ for injured defender Stefan de Vrij]. I looked around and thought: 'We'll be fine with this.'"

Jerzy Brzęczek, Poland coach: "Football is a team game, and the most important issue will be how the whole team plays. Every mistake could be ruthlessly exploited by the Netherlands."
