DFB coach Stefan Kuntz has promised his Dutch coach Erwin van de Looi support before the last group match day of the U21 EM.
“Erwin said to me: If we play 2-2, he will come to Germany and kill me,” said Kuntz on Monday in Budapest with a wink and emphasized: “We are good friends.”
In the Netherlands there are fears that Germany and Romania could play 2-2 on Tuesday (6 p.m. / ProSieben). This result would be enough for both teams to move into the quarter-finals, the Oranje team would then have no chance even if they beat co-hosts Hungary at the same time.
“Erwin is a little taller than me. So I said I’d rather invite him to Germany for a cup of coffee than be killed. We concentrate on ourselves. Our goal is to win, and then Erwin would be happy too “said Kuntz.
