BLIND HOPES FRIENDLIES CAN FIRE IDLING DUTCH

CARDIFF, United Kingdom: Netherlands coach Danny Blind hopes that glamor friendlies will keep his team’s motivation intact after they bounced back from their Euro 2016 qualification failure by beating Wales. Third at last year’s World Cup, the Netherlands will not be among the 24 teams competing in France next year after missing out on a place at the European Championship finals for the first time since 1984. But after Arjen Robben scored twice in a 3-2 friendly win in Cardiff on Friday, Blind voiced hope that forthcoming games against Germany, on Tuesday, and France and England will keep his players focused in the 10 months leading up to the start of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup.
