Well, yes, I still think that Belgium is an average team (no offense, bins
), while ours is maybe just slightly better. They needed a 4 goal win yesterday to qualify and once they were 1 goal up, they couldn't do anything to increase their lead, they could only defend themselves. But they have beaten us fair and square yesterday, so congrats for their performance and for fair-play, because although they had little chances to advance, they played as they could, although they could say: "oh, what the hell, we probably can't advance, so why bother anyway...". :thmbup:
About our team, well, we always crack under pressure. If there is a minimal chance to screw it up, we will do exactly that. Not only in futsal, but in every team sport there is. I suspect it's in our genes...
