Hm, this rumor of a rift between Overmars and Rijkaard is news to me. Even if it is true, I think this is more of a case where the player wants to play before he's fit enough. I'd rather have Marc sit out the opener and have him healthy for the matchup against France than risk losing him for the entire tournament because of pride (ahem, Ronaldo). We all know that Zenden can more than adequately fill his spot on the left wing, so I think if he's not 100% he should at least sit out the match against the Czechs just to be safe.
Overmars and Rijkaard had some problems. About Overmars not being motivated to play friendlies for Oranje or something. But those problems are over. I think Sabugo is right about this. A 100% Zenden is a better option than a Overmars who isn't 100%.
What? How come? It meant that Rijkaard might blank my fave Dutch player--Overmas' future! The reason why Overmas didn't play for that match is because he has slight injury right now, and he will be back in Euro2000. But true, Zenden can be the man.
Rijkaard isn't worried about Overmars fitness ahead of the Czech Republic match, Rijkaard also isn't worried about left-back Numan's slight injury.
Overmars will probably start on the left-wing, and Numan possibly left-back since he's a natural left-back, that could see Zenden starting from the bench.

Anyone just see the Russia-England game? :eek:

How many sides will still be competing come September? that's the question.
Ajax have gone crazy and spent 16m euros on Daley Blind and almost 11,5m on Dusan Tadic in order to not embarrass themselves in Europe again like last season.
Vitesse made their transfers pretty early. That's a change...
