A Conversation for TV and Radio Sport's Howlers

England v Holland, Euro 96

Number Six

It could be a trick of memory, but I'm pretty sure it was Brian Moore commentating on it for ITV. And it might not even have been against England, but anyway. Holland definitely had a defender called Johan de Kock in their squad for that tournament.

And about an hour into the game, the Dutch sent a few big guys into attack at a corner kick, thus allowing Mooro to declaim "...and de Kock's up for this one!"

Not a million miles away from the young Dutch lad who played at Newcastle for a while: Brian Pinas, his name was.

Never got a game for the first team, but played for the 2nds against Scunthorpe, which gave Brian Laws the chance to trot out the line when interviewed later:

"I thought Nathan played well on his return from injury. He kept the Dutch lad quiet for 60 minutes and he pretty much had Pinas in his pocket at the end."
