BALL - Van Gaal calls in six goalkeepers for penalty practice, as well as ... a volleyball coach (Netherlands)

Louis Van Gaal is always looking to innovate and this break between championships and FIFA dates is no exception.

The Netherlands coach initially called up four goalkeepers for the Nations League matches against Poland and Belgium, but this Monday he revealed that he had called in two more goalkeepers – Kjell Scherpen (Vitesse) and Justin Bijlow (Feyenoord) – in order to understand those who from this six will defend the penalty best of all, already with an eye on the 2022 World Cup.

And to improve training, another new addition: Peter Murphy, a former Dutch volleyball coach, will temporarily join the coaching staff to help Van Gaal analyze this detail (which often gets bigger in the later stages).

“We have to train this aspect now because there will be little preparation before the World Cup. This is a very important detail, penalties are often decisive in major competitions and we have to pay special attention to this,” the coach said, also indicating that he will take four goalkeepers from a squad of 26 people to the final in Qatar (Netherlands will play in the group stage with Ecuador, Senegal and Qatar).

For example, at the 2014 World Cup, Van Gaal surprised by changing goalkeepers in the last minute of extra time against Costa Rica in the quarter-finals. Jasper Cillessen was replaced by Tim Krul, and it is true that the goalkeeper played a decisive role, parrying two shots in the penalty shootout (4-3 for the orange team).
