The Bayern Munich winger told the press that he found it frustrating having to watch the two defeats, and that he was told off by his wife after swearing at the TV during the loss to Czech Republic.

Robben Said, “I’m glad to be back and want to set things right,”

‘I was very cranky watching us lose in the last minute to the Czechs, I was sitting on the sofa like a supporter at home and could not believe how we gave it away, losing to such a clumsy goal. I was swearing so loudly my wife had to shout at me. “The kids are sleeping”.

The 30 year-old went on to say what he expects from the upcoming qualifiers with Kazakhstan and Iceland, ‘We have already fallen behind so we must simply win twice,’

Netherlands host Kazakhstan on Friday then travel to Iceland on Monday.
