Tim Krul only heard a few minutes before kick-off that he had to keep in the World Cup qualifying match against Turkey. The goalkeeper replaced Jasper Cillessen, who dropped out injured in the warm-up.
“It couldn’t get any crazy”, said Krul after the game with Turkey, which was lost 4-2, at U.S. “This did not happen until a few minutes before kick-off. Jasper had finished his warm-up and I see him running in at once. Patrick Lodewijks (the goalkeeper coach, ed.) Said there was a chance that I could get in. I had to warm up quickly out of nowhere. Of course that’s not ideal. ”
“Of course I do everything to make Jasper warm. You do not expect Jasper to get off with a knee injury one minute before kick-off, but that is also part of it. It is a shame. I want to be important for the Orange and the right line myself. from the last international period in November to the summer. ”
Krul acknowledged that he did not make a convincing impression under the bar at Orange. The goalkeeper of the English Norwich City had no chance with the 1-0 and 2-0 of the Turkish striker Burak Yilmaz, including a penalty kick, but especially with the 3-0 by Hakan Çalhanoglu (long shot) and the 4-0 by Yilmaz ( free kick), the Hagenaar was not completely free.
“I could have done more myself. On other evenings I might catch a world ball that is now going into the intersection. It just sucks. Especially the third goal I had taken on another night. I hate that the most.”
National coach Frank de Boer called on Marco Bizot shortly after the match against Turkey to replace the injured Cillessen. The Dutch will play against Latvia on Saturday and the game with Gibraltar will follow three days later.
