2022 World Cup: Van Dijk Demands More From Holland After Win Over Senegal

Netherlands defender Virgil van Dijk says the Orange must improve their performance despite the 2-0 victory against Senegal on Monday night.

Cody Gakpo and substitute Davy Klaassen scored two late goals to help the Dutch beat the Terangha Lions in the keenly contested Group A encounter.

“We won but we also know that we can and must do better,” Van Dijk told NOS after the game.
“Going forward we sometimes tried to force things, and we too often left ourselves exposed to Senegal’s counter-attacks.

“That is an area in which we will need to improve because it is an art that our next opponents, Ecuador, are very good at.

“But I am optimistic because I feel we are going to get better.”

Next up for Louis van Gaal’s side is Ecuador on Sunday.
