Netherlands captain and Liverpool defender, Virgil van Dijk has urged his side to stay more focused and not to get complacent despite Monday’s 4-0 win at Estonia, sealing back-to-back Euro 2020 qualifying victories.
The Oranje crushed their opponents by four goals, but their skipper warned they still have plenty left to do to qualify for the final tournament.
“We have done very well with two wins, but we are not there yet,” Van Dijk told NOS. “We also want to win the next two European Championship qualifying matches.”
As for Monday’s straightforward win, Van Dijk insisted the Dutch knew Estonia would fall apart under constant pressure.
“We knew that they would collapse a lot and that we had to be patient,” he said. “We also had to remove their counter. That worked out pretty well, although we could have put a little more pressure in the first half.

“No team could sustain this resistance. We exchanged better from side to side, which gave us more chances and therefore enabled us to score more. No, I didn’t find it a nasty evening.”
