England frustrated by poor finishing
Monday 07 August 1995
David Whitaker, England's coach, described the weekend as: "Disappointing and frustrating, but we must learn from our mistakes. In each game we fought back well and created a lot of chances but our finishing was not good."
At Breda on Saturday, England conceded four goals in nine minutes before losing 5-1. Yesterday, in The Hague, they lost 5-2 despite soaking up considerable pressure in the opening 10 minutes.
After the Dutch captain Marc Delissen opened the scoring, loose marking allowed Remco Van Wijk to put them further ahead before the interval.
After falling further behind Rob Thompson forced a penalty corner in the second half, which Callum Giles converted. Thompson struck again with an impressive individual goal in the final minute.
