Cruyff blasts The Netherlands' playing style

UNBEARABLE: Johan Cruyff labels the Dutch National Team as 'a disgrace'

March 30, 2015 By Oscar Rojas
The Dutch legend was annoyed by the team's display against Turkey on Saturday, when Wesley Sneijder scored a goal in stoppage time to tie the game.

After last Saturday's nerve-wrecking draw against Turkey, the Dutch National team was criticized by one of their most prominent figures of all time. Former coach Johan Cruyff shared his thoughts about the team's performance at Amsterdam Arena, blasting coach Guus Hiddink and his players for their poor form which almost ended up giving the visitors all three points.

"There have to be changes and fast because this football hurts the eyes. We don't have anything and I wonder when they will finally sound the alarm," Cruyff wrote in his weekly column.

The Dutch team currently holds the third place in Group A of the Euro 2016 Qualifiers behind the Czech Republic and Iceland. If Hiddink's men fail to overcome the current difference with the Group leaders, they will have to earn their ticket to the French tournament through a play-off against one of the other third placed teams.

The Netherlands' boss has been under the microscope since the first games of the Qualifiers began. So far, the Dutch have played seven games under Hiddink, losing four and winning just two of those games. Back in November, and following a loss against Mexico, former midfielder Ronald de Boer criticized Hiddink's tactics, since he believed he had no clue about what the team needed. "I don't think he has a game plan," De Boer added.

The Oranje will face Spain in a friendly match on Tuesday, and if things don't work like the Dutch Football Association wants, this could be the end of his second stint as the National Team coach.
