Why Koeman is the dream of many English fans

Why Koeman is the dream of many English fans

On this day of Netherlands-England, which will decide Spain’s opponent in the Euro 2024 final (today, Wednesday at 9pm), some supporters of the Three Lions – who already follow football closely – over 30 – certainly don’t. The Dutch did not want to see England removed. For the good of the Kingdom… But this joy should not be bestowed on a character who gave English supporters nightmares in 1993: Ronald Koeman.

>> Netherlands-England live

Great injury to the British

October 13, 1993 Netherlands-England in the deciding match for a place in the 1994 World Cup in the USA. On the day, Koeman made a big mistake when he caught David Platt on the edge of the penalty area. But the match referee Karl-Joseph Assenmacher (German referee) did not award the penalty. A free kick, a yellow card.

In the minds of English supporters, the move hastened their selection’s defeat, especially since Bergkamp’s second goal as the Netherlands won 2–0 since Koeman opened the scoring in the game. The game was a major blow for England as the setback prevented them from qualifying for the 1994 World Cup and coach Graham Taylor resigned a few days later.
