Worthy thanks for talking to German Hoops. Congrats on the 4-1 Holland record in the Euro qualifying. How good does it feel to have that #1 spot?
Well it feels good but it doesn’t mean anything yet until the last game against Germany.
You are preparing in Leiden now where you played 5 seasons. Does it feel strange waking up in a hotel bed and not in your apartment where you lived the last years?
Well I actually live in Amsterdam where I have my own house so being here I am staying in the comfort of my own home.
