How did he even get to that ball with 2 Qatari defenders right in front of him, lol
Anybody who has watched Frenkie's goals with Barça knows that Frenkie always scores like this
This is the classic Frenkie goal.
You wouldn't expect it based on his general profile and skillset, but he gets to those rebounds in the box really well.
VanGaalBall going undefeated
Too much horniness for modest Qatar
Horny is haram
Actually in a heterosexual marriage it's halal and women have the right to pleasure
"Both spouses share this ruling of deriving sexual pleasure, for just as the wife is lawful for the husband, her husband is also lawful for her.”
Golden willy LVG!!!
Isn't this like legit his 60th match in a row where he goes undefeated, penalties not counting?
I'm pretty sure the last NT game he lost was that ill-fated qualifying match against Ireland in 2001.
EDIT: I'm wrong, last loss was a friendly against France on the way to the 2014 WC.
Never underestimate LVG. With any other Holland coach, this team may not have qualified group stage. Wishing Dutch team all the best. May they go to SF stage and do some upsets.
I generally hate the phrase "he wanted it more," but it's hard not to make that argument here.
If you watch the slo-mo replay, the Qatar defender had to concentrate so hard by going through the step by step movements in executing that motion of a clearance.
de Jong on the under hand came in like a wrecking ball.
Literally the best example here I feel like.
Qatari defenders with the “assist”!
can someone explain the cup emoji?
Defenders drinking coffee watching footy game
The ref defense more than the Qatar backlines.
Get in Frenkie
what is that defence? you get better defence in conference league.
Qatar wouldn't make it in the conference leauge
That squad peaked way too early
Nobody told the defender to cover the ball.
this pedro guy's controller disconnected
Well you have teams like Roma, Marseille and Tottenham in the Conference League. Those are all a million times better than Qatar.
Think he means the National League which used to be, and sometimes still is, referred to as the Conference. Easy mistake
I thought he was talking about the Conference (aka National League) and he still would've been right
I was talking about the english conference tbf. though i think it changed names to national league a while ago.
And mighty Djurgården!
qatar.exe has stopped working
Completely unaware lol
Great save. Shame defenders were asleep.
Qatar defense is so bad. Shit goal but I take it.
We finally completed our goal of walking it in
Frenkie's brain: 'should've assisted someone'
Qatar is the worst world cup team of all time
Saudis 2002. North Korea 2010.
And these are only the ones I remember, I'm sure there have been even more shambolic ones throughout history.
Panama 2018 were pretty terrible. VAR basically killed their defensive tactics they used in qualification.
Going back further Zaire (1974) have the worst record of a world cup team though they were being threatened by a dictator back home so maybe not so fair to include them.
Bolivia (1950) played 1 game at the world cup finals, an 0-8 loss to Uruguay
South Korea 1954, played 2 games, lost 0-9 and 0-7.
The Greek team in 1994 was absolute trash. I saw them play Bulgaria and they looked lost on the pitch. They got beaten a combined 10-0 (Nigeria, Bulgaria and Argentina).
Hard to believe they won the Euros 10 years later.
Also funny since they qualified over Portugal, England, Denmark, Czechoslovakia and France.
They had luck when the groups were drawn but they also even got first in their qualifying group.
It was a famously poorly prepared and motivated team. They came to the USA for vacation and were more interested in sightseeing than in being professional on the pitch. That WC for Greece is famous for the coach's implosion in the dressing room urging the players to shoot (lol).
Amazing that we managed to win the Euros a decade later.
Having watched that WC I honestly think China were worse
The AFC have really come far since just 20 years ago, even if they also still have a long way to go.
Yeah tbh as much as this Qatar team sucks they are way better than 2002 China or Saudi Arabia in that they actually have chances every now and then and don't let 4+ through
Though that WC may have been a bit of an anomaly for AFC. Not sure how qualifying works with hosts in a confederation but if AFC got extra spots due to having 2 teams auto qualify as hosts it makes sense why some teams that didn't belong got in
Well they get 2.5 more spots (as many as today) and had a qualifier. In that qualifier China and Saudi outperformed Iran and UAE.
North Korea won the 2010 world cup what do you mean?
Who is downvoting this lol
USA in 1998 was also pretty terrible.
(I say this as a proud American, though I may be a little biased by my profound disappointment with that team.)
“Of all time” became so meaningless lately lol
2010 North Korea though
2-1 against Brazil was pretty good
There is nothing Qatar has done that could be considered "pretty good"
They had 20 good minutes against Senegal, but that would probably be more on Senegal falling asleep
Tbf their goal they scored was well worked
wdym? the great leader said we won it all that year?
Nah... you didn't watch those Honduran teams from the 2010s...
They at least drew Switzerland in 2010 which caused them to miss the next round
Those Honduran teams would easily beat Qatar. They qualified to the WC for a reason.
didn't Qatar win the Asia Cup over Japan a couple years ago? not that Asia is a powerhouse for football, but it's still impressive
Yeah that was weird when they won that Asian Cup. It seems like they've regressed since or maybe overachieved back then.
Pressure and lack of match fitness since the players haven't played a competitive match in 3 months.
I mean Qatar had some achievements before this world cup
Qatar reach the semifinals of the Gold Cup
Idk that backup US team that beat them would not fare well in the WC
North American teams haven't exactly been represented well here in Qatar though
Okay but they’re comparing them to Honduras so it’s relevant that Qatar did well in a concacaf tournament
Reason is CONCACAF qualifiers probably
They qualified in CONCACAF. Qatar also got third/fourth when they played in the CONCACAF Gold Cup.
You are probably mistaking with 2014 Honuras, 2010 wasnt that bad, even got a draw
Honduras got a draw with switzerland in 2010, what are you talking about
And yet…they still somehow managed to score a goal too!
That’s…a lot more than what other teams can say…shocking
1 goal more than Mexico!
2010 North Korea and 2002 Saudi Arabia
Until North Korea
Defending is optional
Basically if any nation has next to no chance to qualify for a world cup it ain't good enough. They got the money so they're in.
Although yes I do realize they have won the Asian Cup.
How is this upvoted? 2010 North Korea, 2014 Honduras, 2018 Panama, just from recent WCs...
But best hosts of all time 🙄
they didn't execute that pitch invader, so I guess that's something.
2002 Saudi Arabia 🏻
Saudi Arabia 2002
Peaked way too early
Lekker ingelopen pik
Klaassen is moving like prime Iniesta this WC
Same hairline as well
Form is temporary, Klaas is permanent.
Scoring against Spain in the final👀
One of the most underrated players out there for me
Incredibly good link up play
You shouldn't drink that much during the day
Yeah sorry, Klaassen is obviously clear of Iniesta
Just sober up dude
First host country to end up with 0 points, love to see it.
FRENKIE de Goat
All the United lads scoring recently
Paid attention to the lessons from Lewa
Sliding it in with a smile on his face…
Let's go Frenkie! Nu erop en erover!
Qatar is such trash.
Qatar is literally the worst team I have ever seen at a World Cup
Die gaat er wel in
That is just appalling defending in reacting to the second ball.
qatar defense is a fucking joke well done Frenkie
Barca should buy him
Some quality Qatari defending right there.
Qatar really are getting 0 points total in 3 matches from hosting a World Cup. Embarrassing
They could ve qualified if they had to play Wales, USA, Iran, England
Classic frenkie goal
Get battered Qatar
Ten hag is going to ask Tim Cook for £300M in January isn’t he
Qatar has no business hosting the WC, but they're team has no business sniffing the used boots of the other teams in the WC. What a sham that they're even on the pitch against any of these teams.
The fact that they are ranked 11 spots better than Ghana is an absolute joke.
While “the best midfielders in the world” are ghosting for France or sitting bench for them..
Which French midfielder in this team does anyone call the best in the world lmao
The United players continuing to come up with the goods in this game too!
This GK legit might be the worst World Cup GK ever.
21 can you do something for me
I hope he leaves Barca, he's their best midfielder and they still love to shit on him.
He doesnt want to leave.
He surely seems to talk about how much La Porta and the club tried to fuck him over, that's not someone who's staying the long run does. He's gonna finish his contract and go to the Premier League.
["When I play, it's great, and in terms of living there, life is perfect. I see myself at Barcelona for as long as possible. I would personally hope for another eight or 10 years."](https://www.espn.com/soccer/soccer-transfers/story/4808048/frenkie-de-jong-wants-10-year-barcelona-stay-despite-tension-with-board)
United begged him to sign in the summer but he didnt want to leave.
Not on a free with massive sing in bonus, also, it was United. Lol
ooof let's start the party
Frenkie +20 mil?
Man Qatar are straight ass
most acommodating hosts ever, gave all in their group free 3 points
This guy fucks
Glad to see De Jong get the goal to give Netherlands the two goal lead.
Qatar gonna break even more records this world cup. Truly inspirational
Qatar squad: great at acting like they're hurt, dogshit at football.
This defense isn't even funny anymore🤦🏻
Result: Not Found
Going to be so hilarious with the hosts potentially 32nd/32.
Qatari defenders were moving in slow motion.
Frenk the tenk
Reminder qatar somehow won the Asia (+Australia) cup
Defenders: 'Should we clear this ball that bounced off our keeper in front of the goal? Nah, no reason to hurry'
This frankie guy seems pretty good, wonder if we can use him to replace our retiring busquet :/
100 billion for only 1 world cup goal total, most expensive goal ever
