Lang wasn’t pissed off before his Dutch debut
Noa Lang was happy to make his Netherlands debut in the 2-1 win over Latvia on Friday night.
The Club Brugge star made his Oranje debut just after the hour mark, replacing Steven Berghuis in the 1-0 win over Latvia.
After the game, Lang spoke to NOS: “There is always room for improvement, but in itself everything went well. I wasn’t really nervous. It might sound crazy because this is my debut, but for me it’s just a game.
Lang was almost decisive with a pass to Memphis before he had a scoring chance that was blocked, “I was involved in about three chances. With this luck from Memphis, the ball was not in my favor. That’s why I played it on repeat in Memphis; unfortunately he did not enter.
Lang mainly plays on the left wing of Club Brugge and was signed on the right wing on Friday, but that doesn’t matter to the youngster: “If you’re a good footballer, the position doesn’t matter. of importance. I am also someone who plays football by intuition and who tries to feel what you need. I think tonight went well. The fact that I entered as a right winger does not make the debut any less beautiful. “
Lang will have a special place to put on his first Dutch cap, “It will be placed between the caps and the shirts. It was my dream to make my debut for the Dutch national team. To do it here or in a complete Johan Cruijff ArenA, in principle, it does not matter much. In any case, I am no less happy.
