Van Der Vaart happy with win

Andre Ooijer and Arjen Robben scored the goals for the Netherlands and Van der Vaart was among the best men on the pitch.

“I think that there’s no doubt about it how we felt on the pitch. Everything went quite easy and I’m happy with the result,” stated Van der Vaart told SBS6.

“Playing football is really fun like this. We were always the dominant team and created several good chances. We have every reason to be satisfied, unlike the Norwegians. They really had a tough evening.

“The crowd deserved to see a good match and I’m glad that we were able to offer them a game like this. We’ve had some trouble getting motivated for matches like this in the past, but today was perfect.

“I’m glad that I was involved in our second goal. I played a quick pass towards [Robin] Van Persie, who set up [Arjen] Robben with a brilliant through pass. He had no trouble converting the easy chance.”
