Robben is amazing, says Sneijder

The Galatasaray attacker has singled out the Bayern man for special praise following the Dutch’s impressive win over Latvia

Wesley Sneijder has taken the time to praise Arjen Robben in the wake of Netherlands’ 6-0 Euro 2016 qualification win over Latvia at the Amsterdam ArenA on Sunday evening.

The Bayern Munich star provided the assist for Robin van Persie’s opener and found the net twice himself to guide Holland to a comfortable home win.

“Robben is an amazing player. It is good to have these kinds of players in your team,” Sneijder told the Uefa website, before going on to praise Oranje’s performance against Latvia.

“It was a great match and a good result. We made a big step and now we have to continue like this.

“We were really eager to win this game. Earlier we lost against Mexico [3-2 in a friendly], and we didn’t do that well in the other qualifying matches as we only managed to beat Kazakhstan.

“So we needed the three points and we did it, and at the same time we played pretty well, with six beautiful goals.”

Netherlands sit third in Group A with six points from four games, trailing leaders Czech Republic by six points.
