Robben told SBS6, “You can always make comments and name things that are not going well.”

“In the first half we had control and we played well. We have to be even sharper, and have a winning mentality. We get two goals against, it can not be at this level.”

However after returning to the 5-3-2 formation which worked at the World Cup last summer, Robben admitted he was feeling good about the future.

He said, “We have started again today with a bit of the old system. We have to work on that, but I have a good feeling about the future. ”

Robben will not take part in the friendly against Germany on Tuesday though after a prior agreement with club Bayern Munich.
