Louis van Gaal did not hesitate for long about the system to be used, he says just before kick-off.

"If there are so many guys who like to play 4-3-3, who am I to do it otherwise?", he tells the



"Certainly if I have so little preparation time. And why do I choose Bijlow in goal? If someone stops a lot of balls, you automatically gain a lot of confidence in such a boy. And Frans Hoek (goalkeeper coach, ed.) is of the same opinion committed."
