For Ajax midfielder Wesley Sneijder (18) the result of the friendly Holland - Portugal (1-1) was the least important part of the night. His debut for Holland was what counted most.
,,Never mind about the match, congratulate me with my first minutes for Holland. That what you do it for'', Sneijder said Wednesday evening after the match in Eindhoven.
Sneijder said it had been a crazy week. First he played with Ajax against AC Milan for the Champions League, then he played a full second half with the Dutch national team. ,,And all in one week, without time to think about everything. That's how fast it goes.''
Sneijder claimed he had had no first game jitters. ,,I got some passes right away. It went very naturally after that.''
