Holland winger Arjen Robben has hinted that dressing-room contributed towards their group exit from Euro 2012 after three successive defeats. The Dutch went to Poland and Ukraine among the favourites to lift the trophy but failed to pick up a point in Group B, losing to Denmark, Germany and Portugal.
Bayern Munich star Robben told Voetbal International: "Of course there were some internal issues but we will keep them indoors.
"But believe me we tried everything, it's just not worked." While Dutch fans were quick to search for a scapegoat, Robben insisted it was a collective failure.
"The hunger in the team is there," he added, "but we failed together. And I mean the technical staff, the players, the whole team.
"This is the harsh reality of the sporting world. We must all, therefore, look in the mirror."
