Netherlands boss Ronald Koeman has reacted to Saturday’s Euro 2020 group draw.

Netherlands already knew they would face Ukraine in Group C but they could have got Portugal in Saturday’s draw. However, instead Oranje will come up against Austria. Romania or the winner of Playoff D will be the third opponent.

Speaking to NOS, Koeman admitted he was happy to get Austria and not Portugal, “I prefer that (Austria) to Portugal, yes.

“With all due respect, but we know how tough Portugal is as an opponent. I like that we now play a country that we have not played so often. Of course I know a number of players and we will prepare ourselves to play them as well as possible. “

Koeman believes the feeling and respect of the Netherlands national team is high at the moment, “You notice that here too. We’re at a draw, we’re going to the final tournament. It’s great that we play three games in Amsterdam. At the draw of the Nations League I already had the idea that the Netherlands was looked at differently than before. That only indicates that we are doing well. ”
