ARJEN Robben played for the national team in the World Cup qualifiers four years ago. This was his last game. After the Netherlands failed to qualify, he ended his national team career. Robben was 33 years old and a member of Bayern Munich.
Today, after a brief retirement, he played for Groningen and changed his mind about playing for the national team under Frank de Boer.
”If invited, I will accept the invitation. Last year, when I returned to football, I was also thinking about the UEFA Champions League. That would be great, but it should also be realistic. I must be fully prepared and able to help the team. We will see” Robben said after the game with Emmen, he participated in two assists, but today he got a reply from the Dutch coach.
“I learned to never give up, but now I refuse. I am very happy that Arjen will participate in the competition again, especially for himself, but everything needs to be considered. I think the last time he played 90 minutes was in 2019,” De Boer said, and jokingly answered the question of what Robben would do if he continued to play excellent games.
“Then we can make some arrangements for the Qatar World Cup.”
