FilGoal | News | Depay speaks for the first time after his move to Barcelona

“I am very excited to play in front of the great Barcelona fans, they love football so much,” added the player, who is in the Netherlands national team at Euro 2020.

Depay is currently participating with the Netherlands national team in Euro 2020, and led the team to victory in the first two rounds of the group stage and scored in the last match against Austria with a penalty kick.

The Netherlands team leads the third group after achieving the full mark and obtaining 6 points from two matches.

Orange madness – Netherlands win against Ukraine

The hosts dominated the game in Amsterdam for a long time and took the lead – but at the end a spectacular game developed. Two people are the focus.

It had to happen that way. It seemed inevitable. Everything came down to this 52nd minute. Those 22 players on the pitch, three referees, 16,000 spectators in the magnificent Johan Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam, who made a noise like Ajax was playing Feyenoord in front of 55,000. And yet two people were at the center of this 3:2 (0:0) for the European Championship opener of the Netherlands against the Ukraine: Orange star Georginio Wijnaldum and guest goalkeeper Georgjy Bushchan.

On the one hand Wijnaldum as an outstanding driver in the midfield of the team of Bondscoach Frank de Boer. The midfielder was involved in almost every attack by the home side, whirling around in the penalty area, in the penalty area, alone or in a duo with Memphis Depay, presenting Ukraine with almost non-stop problems. On the other hand, Bushchan, the early hero of the game, let down more than once by his front men, constantly challenged and with brilliant deeds, like in the 39th minute when he was able to fend off an undercover volley with a flash of lightning – it was Wijnaldum, who failed.

In the 52nd minute, however, there was a decisive duel between the characters who had been shaping the game at that time: Denzel Dumfries brought the ball sharply into the center from the outside, Bushchan fended off in the middle of the penalty area – and Wijnaldum stood there and slammed the ball overdue 1-0 into the network. The duel had a winner – and both teams broke the dams. In the Ukraine defense, which had been so disciplined until then, Mykolenko made a big buck shortly after falling behind, which Wout Weghorst used directly.

And somehow it fit in with this cheerful game that it turned out to be dramatic in the end: Ukraine was suddenly back again – also with a one-two punch. Andrei Yarmolenko (75th) scored a wonderful connection, shortly afterwards Anton Yaremchuk was there and shocked the Oranje fans. 2: 2. But then Dumfries was there in his head. 3: 2. Because Bushchan made a mistake. Maybe it had to happen that way too.

This is how the game went:

The hosts took command right from the start and, driven by the lively whirlwind Wijnaldum, came up with several chances early on. But Oranje was initially unable to reward himself for his high percentage of possession. Depay and Dumfries missed the first good opportunities or, like Wijnaldum (38th), failed against the Ukrainian goalkeeper Bushchan. On the other hand, during one of the very few relief attacks, the East European England legionnaire Yarmolenko fell in the penalty area, but the sovereign referee Felix Brych (Munich) allowed play to continue on his second appearance at a European Championship tournament.

In the first few minutes after the break, de Boer’s team seemed unexpectedly lacking in ideas and thus largely silenced the fans. The first goal was all the more surprising: After a blunder by Vitali Mykolenko on the left defense of Ukraine, Wijnaldum released the hosts with a placed left-hand shot from the edge of the penalty area, only seven minutes later Weghorst hit with a dry shot in his eighth international match. But Ukraine now ventured forward more often. Then came the furious final minutes from Amsterdam.

“I’m the proud captain. We are relieved and thanks to Dumfries we have a wonderful evening. The 2-2 did not panic. A draw would have unsettled us,” said Wijnaldum on Dutch television.

Juventus wants to lift Barcelona’s signing of Depay

The bianconero team has been courting the tulip soccer player for months and the arrival of Massimiliano Allegri he has reactivated this operation on the bench, which seriously jeopardizes his signing for the Catalan team.

According to MundoDeportivo, the ‘vecchia signora’ offers much more salary than Barça is offering Memphis Depay in order to convince him to sign for his team. The Dutchman ends his contract with Olympique de Marseille at the end of this month and many clubs are interested, although it is true that the player’s priority has always been to sign for Barcelona since Ronald Koeman has requested it personally and knows it first hand the plans that the culé coach has for him at the Camp Nou.

They exceed the culé offer by far

The last offer from FC Barcelona satisfied Memphis Depay a lot, so he was about to close his contract, but in recent days he has been paralyzed due to the emergence of Juventus, who seems to have offered three million euros more than salary on the offer of the azulgrana team. The imminent start of the Eurocup can also be a problem for the Catalan team as many players decide to paralyze the negotiations during the competition, which would be a big problem given that if they play a good role with their team they could ask for even more money.
