Team News NED v JPN

Well I tried to put some winds of change out there. I tried to add some alternative ideas to the idea-o-sphere. But alas the line-up for the Oranje is unchanged today.

I agree that the Dutch were not poor against Denmark but surely there was room for improvement. Coupled with the success of the underdog in the tournament thus far I personally – and humbly – believe that a minor change in the form of Elia perhaps would have created a level of unpredictability for the Japanese.

If rumors are true of a minor injury for Elia during training this week then I can understand van Marwijk’s reluctance to risk the player.

My hope is that van Marwijk provided van der Vaart with explicit instructions regarding width and driving towards the by-line to stretch the Japanese defence.

That’s all for now.
