After the 2-1 win, Blind told SBS6, “Janssen put in a strong performance and does a lot of work for the team.

“He has two goals in three games now. He always pops up in dangerous positions and is always available. He is a very versatile striker and a player who can only get better.”

On the victory itself, Blind was happy with Netherlands performance,

“We put in a poor performance against Republic of Ireland, but we were a lot better this time around.

“We were dangerous through our wingers and did not give away many chances. We struggled a bit after the break and had to play a lot of long balls.

“But we are conceding too many goals from set-pieces. We do a lot of work on it. We have plenty of height, but have to be more alert and do better.”
