For the “Elftal” the last World Cup qualifier against Norway is still about the ticket for Qatar. National coach Louis van Gaal will only be able to watch his team’s game with limited mobility.

“Oranje” coach Louis van Gaal can only accompany the decisive World Cup qualifier against Norway on Tuesday in a wheelchair. The 70-year-old had injured his hip in a bicycle fall, as the Dutch media reported on Monday. He followed the training of the team in Zeist from a golf cart.

Van Gaal reportedly crashed on Sunday evening when he cycled back to the hotel with the team after training. An operation is not necessary, reported the TV broadcaster NOS and quoted a spokesman for the football association KNVB. But the Bondscoach is now dependent on crutches or a wheelchair. “Louis wants to do everything to be at the game on Tuesday,” said the KNVB spokesman.

The World Cup qualifier on Tuesday is all or nothing for Oranje. A defeat against Norway threatens the end for the Netherlands.
