many, the’ Golden Era’ as you may call them have one last chance to show what they can do and replicate their club for on the Internatiomnal stage – something that has been decidedly lacking in recent World Cups and European Championships.
For Wesley Sneidjer, Robin Van Persie and Arjen Robben this World Cup may indeed be their last chance to shine on the highest level, and with Rafael Van Der Vaart unavailable this time round through injury, much will depend on the famous Oranjes trio who have lit up their clubs domestically.
Indeed a friendly against Wales will be just the sort of game tho increase morale and settle the side.
For Wales, Chris Coleman will have to make do without his star player, Gareth Bale, who is sitting this game out through injury.
Many expected the Real Madrid forward to not make the trip ,and it remains to be seen what sort of commitment the Cardiff born player will give to the Welsh cause over the coming years.
Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey will also be missing from the trip, meaning that Liverpool midfielder Joe Allen will captain the side for the first time.
I had no qualms about asking Joe..I’ve watched Joe closely for a long, long time before he got into the Swansea City first team and remember him as a kid coming through…
He’s gone on and established himself at one of the biggest clubs in the Premier League. In the second half of the season he was really, really outstanding. It’s something [captaincy] that I never thought twice about
We’ve got to stamp our authority on this game and let them know, as good as they are, we’re not there to make numbers up regardless of who’s missing” – Chris Coleman
This will be a tough ask for the Welsh side, but with nothing to lose and everything to play for.
The stage is set for players on the fringes of the squad to make an impression, and for the Dutch, nothing less than an emphatic win will send the home crowd happy and in an optimistic mood for the biggest tournament in the World, which kicks off in less than ten days.
