Holland coach Marco van Basten was full of praise for his squad after the way in which secured a place in the Euro 2008 quarter-finals.
The Dutch scored nine goals in their three group wins, including a 2-0 victory over Romania when van Basten fielded a second XI.
“It is great for us because we played well once again,” he said after the win over Romania.
“We have had three excellent matches with different players. I’m very pleased with the whole squad.
“We played a good game. We started poorly – maybe because the pitch was a little bit wet.
“After a difficult 20-25 minutes, we came into the game, played better and better and created a lot of chances.
“We have got to be very proud and happy that we have won three games.
“In the beginning it was the ‘Group of Death’, so nine points and nine goals – we can be very happy about that.”
