Van Basten: No easy ride for Romania

Published Add your comment

Holland coach Marco van Basten will urge his players to give their all in their last Group C outing, even though a defeat against Romania on Tuesday would see pre-tournament favourites France and Italy eliminated from Euro 2008.

The Dutch clinched top spot in the ´Group of Death´ and a place in the quarter-finals with their 4-1 demolition of the French in Bern.

"We are first in the group whatever happens and we are very happy about that," said the former AC Milan striker. "But we have an obligation to play well (against Romania), to the players and the supporters."
