We're a joke says Dutch press
The Dutch team has become Euro 2012's joke and could not count itself among the world's top footballing nations any more, the Dutch press said Monday.
"The joke of the Euro 2012," said daily tabloid The Telegraaf adding that the much vaunted "miracle of Kharkiv" never happened after the Dutch were eliminated from Group B by a 2-1 loss to Portugal on Sunday evening.
"Three matches, zero points. Never before has the Netherlands done this bad," said daily paper NRC next adding "seldom has a team, that was still number one on the ranking list last year, broken its reputation as quickly and thoroughly as the Orange did in the last months."
