Janssen determined to shine for Holland


Vincent Janssen remains confident of his abilities as a striker ahead of the Netherlands’ World Cup qualifying clash against Bulgaria on Saturday.

The Tottenham striker is still to score a Premier League goal from open play, having converted a number of penalties, and only netted his first effort for the London club in the recent 6-0 FA Cup victory over Millwall.

Despite his lack of game-time and goals, the Dutchman is likely to feature for his national team having been a fairly regular inclusion in coach Danny Blind's sides.

Speaking to VI, Janssen said: "I feel fitter than in previous years. I just feel like I have energy.

“I have enough self-confidence. I know what I can do and there is nothing changed."

He added: "Of course I’m not satisfied with the number of matches in recent months. But I remain positive. I am training well at Tottenham Hotspur. I’m not going to be the only player walking away whining. That makes no sense. ”
