This is not the case for Holland, their two forwards Depay and Gakpo were loaned out against Les Bleus, but it was the whole attacking animation that was singled out. ” Our forwards have all had difficult times and sometimes did not have the patience to make the right decisions. But ultimately, I think it is a fair result and one that we can live with. ” admitted Ronald Koeman, a result that allows them to be group leader until now.
