Goal scorer Noa Lang and Antwerp target Vincent Janssen are praised: "That's why he will be there in Qatar"

De Telegraaf: “No childish tricks in his game”

In De Telegraaf, Noa Lang gets a nice 7 out of 10 for his match. Only Frenkie de Jong got a higher score with 8.5. “Nice threat”, ex-international Regi Blinker, now an analyst for De Telegraaf, judges Lang’s match. “That was my first impression at the beginning of this international match. And that continued well. Noa has shown that he can break open or decide a match. Perhaps this was his best international match to date. I didn’t see any childish tricks in his playing, and he seemed mature in many ways now. I paid special attention to him after his goal. To my relief, no finger on the mouth but normal cheering. That’s how it should be Noa!”

Striker Vincent Janssen, who indicated after the game that he is close to a transfer to Antwerp, received a 6.5 in De Telegraaf. “I don’t think everyone expected a lot from Vincent because he was in Mexico and we didn’t see much of him,” said Blinker. “But at least he pleasantly surprised me. We know that he works hard. But his assist to Noa Lang was fine, his own attempts were too. He suffered little loss of the ball and was a good point of contact. I like him a little bit deeper as a striker, but I thought he did well against Wales. The fact that the boys were really looking for him in the game also says a lot.”


AD: “That’s why Noa Lang will soon be there in Qatar”

Also in Algemeen Dagblad a 7 out of 10 for Noa Lang. “That opening goal, that’s why Noa Lang will probably be there later in Qatar”, it sounds convincing in AD. “An individual action, unexpected turning moments. And a nice hit. Fifteen minutes before time to the side.”

And also in AD a 6.5 for Janssen. “The striker of Orange did not play without merit”, it sounds in the short analysis of his match. “Vincent Janssen was active, approachable and goal-oriented. The award in the form of a goal did not come, but Louis van Gaal knows that a target is also available.”

Voetbal International: “Janssen is a point of reference”

In the match analysis of Voetbal International, an entire block was devoted to Janssen. “With that goal, Janssen already proves that he can have his value as a point of reference”, it sounds in VI. “Although he also loses the ball five times on an assumption – previously described by Van Gaal as ‘hard feet’ – but is important in many promising attacks. Serving Lang even gives him an assist.”

“Five minutes later, Janssen is also crucial for Gakpo’s 2-0. In a situation in which the Dutch national team plays the long ball, he appears to be able to win an aerial duel in two instances. With that, he puts Gakpo to work. He dribbles up to the sixteen, sees his first shot cracked and shoots a creditable hit in the rebound. Like the first goal, this is a demonstration of what is possible with a deep striker and two agile attackers around him. Van Gaal mentions Brian Brobbey as another option for such a role.”

“With his substitution in the 72nd minute, Janssen has four created chances and three attempts. Figures that demonstrate that a point of contact can function quite well in the current Orange system. Especially with creative players in his neighbourhood.”
