Wesley Sneijder wants to celebrate the win over France.

The win over France gave Sneijder a reason to have a little party because now the Dutch football team is ready for the quarterfinals, the last game against Romania is not so important because the Dutch team is qualified. We are going to have a little party but not a lot, because we are professional and we have a quarterfinal soon says Sneijder. 

Are the reserves going to play against Romania?

I think the reserves is going to play the match against Romania, because if you get any injuries, the reserves will be ready, and it is not funny to be at the Euro finals 2008 and not play a single match. I think players like, Sneijder, van der Vaart, van der Saar, Ruud van Nistelroy and some of the players in the defense will get a break.

Heitinga is a strong defender and he is properly the best Dutch football player to control the Dutch defense, and secure that the other football teams not will be scoring a lot of goals against the Netherlands.

Heitingas time in Ajax.

The beginning of Heitinga’s career.

Heitinga was part of the Ajax youth setup as well as many other players on the Ajax team. He was 17 years old when he made his debut for the first team in Ajax on 26th of August 2001 against Feyenoord Rotterdam. Heitinga can play many places in the field, central defender, right-back and defensive midfielder, so he is a very all round player. He quickly established himself as an important player on the team.

Heitinga and injuries.

Heitinga was a strong addition to the team and he became first-choice player under Coach Co Adriaanse and later Ronald Koeman. He was the first choice until he suffered an injury with his knee, and the injury kept him on the side line for six month.  He had a very short comeback caused by the fact that he was injured again after one game, and this injury sentenced him to a very long break from football to recover from the injury.
He made his second comeback at the start of the 2003-04 season. He impressed everyone in the first game and from there on he was the first-choice central defender for the rest of the season.
