    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Netherlands Midfielder and Man of the Match Wesley Sneijder: We're satisfied with the fact we've won our first two matches. We always knew today's game would be difficult, because Japan work and run very hard. We passed well in the first half. We kept it up in the second half, we started creating chances, and we took one of them. I hit it well and the ball certainly wobbled in the air. I'm delighted it went in. We've yet to play our best football, but we have to be pleased with six points from two matches. Some of the big teams haven't managed that.

      • Netherlands Midfielder Mark van Bommel: We went out there looking to win the game. Japan were very defensive, which we didn't expect. We thought they'd come at us. We had to be patient. We knew that we'd score at some point, provided we stayed patient. After that we concentrated on defending the lead, although we ought to have scored a second on the break.

      • Netherlands Coach Bert van Marwijk: You've got to be happy about winning your first two games. But we can play better than that, and we'll have to. We'll be taking a good look at ourselves and keeping our feet on the ground.
