Van Gaal upset with youngsters

Holland beat Turkey 2-0 at the Amsterdam Arena as they got their World Cup Qualifying campaign underway

Netherlands coach Louis van Gaal feels his younger players were below par in his side's World Cup qualifying win over Turkey on Friday.

Manchester United's Robin van Persie and PSV Eindhoven's Luciano Narsingh were the men on the scoresheet for the Dutch in a 2-0 home win.

But Van Gaal, who picked a collection of fresh faces following the country's poor performance at Euro 2012, will expect better from his players in future games.

A lot of the manager's criticism was directed at Feyenoord pair Jordy Clasie and Daryl Janmaat.

"Janmaat was not Janmaat,'' Van Gaal told De Telegraaf. "Clasie can offer a lot going forward, but he did not. That's why I changed them after the break.''

Janmaat was hauled off at half-time, whilst Clasie was replaced soon after the break, but these weren't the only ones to feel Van Gaal's wrath.

"In the first-half I was also dissatisfied with Martins Indi and Jetro Willems, but in the second-half they improved handsomely," Van Gaal explained after the match. "That is very impressive at that age and says a lot about those guys.''

Van Gaal's disappointment was outweighed by the victory, which saw Netherlands overcome a tricky start against Turkey. The last time the former Barcelona boss was in charge of the national team, they failed to qualify for the 2002 World Cup, with Van Gaal hoping to right that wrong this time around.

"Where then we started badly in the (Amsterdam) ArenA with 2-2 against Ireland, now we have a good start,'' Van Gaal said. "That's wonderful. "It is very important that we have won the first game, otherwise you are immediately behind the pace.

"I think the public enjoyed it, you could see that from their reactions. We had many more chances than the Turks.''
