Speaking to NOS, Ramselaar said on his time with Netherlands, ”I am delighted that things have gone so quickly and to have made my international debut. I watched the 2010 World Cup final at home with my parents, brother and sister I was only 14 then. I never thought that  would go on to become a teammate of Arjen Robben and Wesley Sneijder. It is a dream come true to make my debut for the Dutch national team and play alongside such players.

” When I arrived in the national team setup I had a few nerves and it was strange to report for national team duty and to be treated the same as the experienced pro’s in the squad . Afterwards, you realise what an honor it is to represent your country ”.

Ramselaar also elaborated on his good form for PSV lately, ”The manager knows what I can do and I am also aware of what I can add to the team. I feel happy here at PSV and I feel important to the team. I was disappointed not to play against Bayern Munich but I trained hard and responded well and since then I have managed to play all the games.”

On his future, he responded, ” I do not wish to speak about my future and predict what will happen 2 years from now for example. In terms of this season I want to win trophies because I have never won a trophy that would be fantastic and that is our goal here at PSV this season. If I was to ever receive a call from a Spain to play for a Spanish club that is a goal for the future.”
