Memphis Depay feels the Dutch national team is turning a corner after two missed major tournaments and want’s Netherlands to keep pushing forward.

After scoring in the 3-0 win over Germany, the Lyon winger was once again the star of Ronald Koeman’s side in the 1-1 draw with Belgium.

Memphis told NOS, “We can not go bacK.

“We have come a long way, and from now on it should only get better.”

Memphis was part of the Netherlands squad that finished third at the World Cup four years ago and has seen it go wrong since. He feels everything is going on the right track now, “The atmosphere has changed, which makes sense.

“If things are not going well, you will notice that in everything, you notice that in the media, in the country, but also in the group, there are a lot of new boys now, and it’s time to see other players get up. It’s a positive thing now, as a team I really see that we’re defending each other, and if someone makes a mistake, we’ll correct it, so that’s how you build a team that can rely on each other for a hundred percent. ”

Memphis is now the star of Oranje and puts his form down to being happy on and off the pitch, “I feel good, I am super happy, also outside the field and I feel confident that the trainer has confidence. For every player it is important that he is happy outside the field. 

“That was not particularly the case in England (at Manchester United) You could see that too. Now I have everything in a row, you can see that in the field again. The coach’s confidence is in me. He knows I can create things, and the team is looking for me too. “
