Podcast: Euro 2020 – What went wrong and what happens next?

The Netherlands’ Euro 2020 campaign is over. Frank de Boer’s time in charge is over. Yeah, it’s fair to say that we have a lot to discuss…

The only place to start is with the match that caused the above things to happen, a 2-0 defeat to Czech Republic.

Going down to 10 men was the final nail in the coffin, but even before that, the team looked really, really poor. After a successful group stage, what exactly went wrong?

After discussing that, we then talk about how much responsibility the players themselves need to take for the defeat and just how concerned we should be about the squad going forward given the lack of passion and leadership on display.

One thing is certain; they’re all going to have a new boss following the resignation of De Boer, and the rest of the episode focuses on his departure and who should replace him.

Why exactly was he such a poor manager? Will Louis van Gaal now return? Is a longer-term option the way to go? Should the KNVB look for foreign candidates? We do our best to answer all of that and more.
