The whole team scored 21 times, 10 of which were in the right direction, while Estonia had only one shot. In the 17th minute, Blind crossed from the left, and Babel in the penalty area inserted in time, scored from close range to help the Netherlands lead 1-0. In the 48th minute, De Peis right pass, Babels header in the penalty area scored twice, the Netherlands 2-0! After that, Depe and Venerdum scored one goal each, and the Netherlands won 4-0 in the end.
Babel, 32, was born at the Ajax Academy and joined Liverpool in 2007 when he was only 19. In his first season at Liverpool, he was named the teams best young player of the season, but Babel failed to secure a stable playing time at Liverpool and left for Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga in the winter of 2011. Babel also returned to Ajax to play, but was not performing well because of injuries. Later, he even went to Alain in the United Arab Emirates for gold, where he was delegated to the reserve team for disciplinary reasons.
Babel was first selected by the Dutch national team in 2005 and became the fourth youngest scorer in the history of the Dutch national team at the age of 18 and 3 months. He also participated in the 2006 World Cup and 2010 World Cup. However, in the nearly seven years from 2011 to 2017, Babel has not been called up by the Dutch national team, many people are worried that his career will be lost, and completely lost the hope of returning to the national team.
But Babel himself did not give up. After leaving the United Arab Emirates, he returned to the European League to play, first in La Coruna, then in Tuchao Besiktas, and regain the feeling of scoring goals. Babel scored 13 assists and 5 assists in the Turkish Premier League in the 2017-18 season. He was loaned to Fulham in January this year for half a season and scored 5 assists and 3 assists in the Premier League. Babel joined Turkish giants Galatasaray this summer and has scored two goals in the league in the new season.
Babel regained the attention of the Dutch national team after his recovery. In 2017, Babel was finally re-selected for the Dutch national team. And last years national team coach Korman is very appreciative of Babel, Babel has gradually become the main forward of the national team. Babel, in order to continue his campaign for the country, refused the high-paying invitation of the Chinese Super Leagues Tianjin Quanjian last summer and chose to stay in Europe. Babel, 32, scored twice for the Netherlands national team for the first time, ushering in his new peak in the national team.
Babel said after the game, The Dutch national team has started a wave of youth? My old boat can ride the wind and break the waves. How do I stay in shape? The main thing is to pay attention to your body and keep healthy. I really want to take part in the last national team competition. My ankle was injured in 2008 and I didnt get time to play in 2010. After that, I havent been called up by the national team for a long time.
Babel went on to say, Maybe Im too team-oriented. As a striker, I have to be more selfish to get my chance. I wasnt included in the national team between 2011 and 2017, which really frustrated me. I was 24 to 30 years old, the golden age, the best age for players. Now Im happy to be recognized again. Im happy to score two goals and play an important role in this game.
