UEFA is starting an investigation into the use of the large video screen in the Johan Cruijff ArenA during Tuesday's European Championship qualifying match between the Dutch national team and Estonia. According to the European union, a repeat of a situation on the field could be seen.
UEFA states that video repetition was not permitted on the basis of the safety regulations. It is still unclear what time it is during the competition.
"We are also curious, but we have not heard from UEFA", says a spokesperson for the KNVB. "So we can't say anything about it yet. The only thing we show on the video screen are the Orange goals."
The disciplinary committee of UEFA will deal with the case against the KNVB on Thursday 12 December.
Orange as number two from qualifying group to European Championship
The Netherlands won the last qualifying match against Estonia 5-0, thanks in part to a hat trick from Georginio Wijnaldum. Despite the victory, the team of coach Ronald Koeman finished behind Germany in second in group C.
As a result, it is already certain that Ukraine is one of the three opponents of Orange in the group stage of the European Championship of 2020. The Netherlands is not allowed to come from one of the four host countries from Pot 1 and Ukraine and Russia must remain separated in the group phase due to the political conflict between the two countries.
If Romania qualifies for the European Championship through the play-offs in March, that Eastern European country will also join the Orange squad in the European Championship group.
