Georginio Wijnaldum was the hero for Netherlands on Sunday with two goals in their 2-1 win over Belarus. However, the Liverpool star was not happy with the performance shown.

Wijnaldum scored twice in the first half to give Netherlands a comfortable lead at the break. However, Belarus pulled one back early in the second half and caused Netherlands some issues.

Speaking to NOS, Wijnaldum said after the win, “We can do much better, we showed that in the last matches. We thought it too easily in the second half, so we still gave them hope.

“It’s very frustrating. I think we thought about it too easily. That was certainly the case in the second half. We were leading 2-0 against a team that is worse than our previous opponents.”

On why he is being critical of a victory, Wijnaldum added, “We have to be critical, because at the European Championship you play against the best teams in Europe and this can be fatal.”
