Published Add your comment

Marco van Basten is adamant neither he nor his side will get bogged down by public expectation.

The Oranje currently share top spot in Euro 2008 Qualifying Group G with Romania after recent wins over Bulgaria and Albania.

Dutch fans are notoriously hard to please but Van Basten insists they are no more demanding than supporters of other European nations, but he told www.knvb.nl: "I am not irritated at all when it comes to the high expectations of the fans."
