Liverpool defender, Virgil van Dijk, has said Holland must improve after their 2-0 defeat of World Cup opponents Senegal.

The Netherlands are now level on three points with an Ecuador side who beat hosts Qatar 2-0 in the tournament’s opening game on Sunday. Next up for Louis van Gaal’s side is Ecuador on Sunday.

“We won but we also know that we can and must do better,” Van Dijk told NOS after the game.

“Going forward we sometimes tried to force things, and we too often left ourselves exposed to Senegal’s counter-attacks.

“That is an area in which we will need to improve because it is an art that our next opponents, Ecuador, are very good at.

“But I am optimistic because I feel we are going to get better.”
