John Heitinga didn't play in Budapest last night, as his fitness was in question following his cramp against Turkey.
That's what you get when you don't get enough playing time.
It was a disappointing match, not only because the Dutch are missing some good footballers, Arjen Robben didn't play either with a groin strain whilst warming up, Hungary were poor opposition.
Robben's substitute, Jeremain Lens (PSV) scored twice in a 1-4 Dutch win.
Robin van Persie only played the first half, as he was getting battered by the Hungarian defence, his sub, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar scored the fourth.
Because Belgium-Croatia started 15 minutes later, I got to see some of it at half-time, and after the Dutch match.
A much better game.
I knew yesterday that Kevin Mirallas wouldn't start, but was surprised to see Marouane Fellaini not playing in the first half too.
Croatia were ahead, scored after a few minutes, but I was lucky to see the equalizer, a belter by Gillet.
In the second half both our boys were playing (MF on in 66th min & KM on in 81st min), but the score remained the same.
You'd think these two teams would normally top the group, and I guess the Belgians must feel disappointed by dropping points at home again (like they did against Turkey in the previous qualifiers, and unnecessarily too).http://www.voetbalkrant.com/nl/wedstrijden/2012-09-11/belgie/kroatie/overzicht
Interesting for the ratings, Jelavic didn't play well by the looks of it.
