It'll be interesting to see what Wilmots will do against Wales. But one this is sure: we need to take the three points back to the continent.
While this was a great game, it wouldn't surprise me if we fail to beat Wales next month tbh. Would be typical of this team. And I know the "we are so young" excuse is getting a bit old, but hey, they are still very young.. Benteke (21), Lukaku (19), Hazard (21), De Bruyne (21), Courtois (20), Chadli (22), Witsel (23), etc etc. And we still really have to sort our of defence. I know we have great individual talent but our team defence is shaky, even when Kompany is playing. Last night, especially at the end of the first half and beginning of the 2nd, Holland had a lot of chances where they could run freely down the flanks or play easy through balls and our defence would just stand there and watch it happen..
