Micky van de Venas didn't start any matches in this European Championship yet. However, his appearances coming off the bench were noticeable, which gives hope to get a chance in the starting lineup in the semi-finals against England.

During a press conference, the defender commented on the game of "Arsenal" leader B. Saka: "I know Saka well from the Premier League when I had to play against Arsenal. I faced him twice. We'll see if the coach will make the decision to start me.

Saka is a very good, fast player, but Virgil (van Dijk) and Nathan (Ake) also have a lot of speed. I'm sure they can stop him," - the defender expressed his belief in stopping the English player.

M. van de Venas was asked who is faster between him and Saka. However, the Dutchman did not give a direct answer.

Meanwhile, C. Gakpo said at the press conference:„This team always believed we can go far in the tournament.

We sang a song for Virgil's birthday. He was happy about it because he can celebrate his birthday with us. It means that we have gone far in this tournament.“
