Stevens lamented: "We are very disappointed. The second goal showed how much they outclassed us. They came down their right, and we never got close to them.
"English teams are very strong - they show that in the Champions League every season. We found it hard to contain them."
He added: "You see how good the English, Spanish and Italian clubs are. It is a problem for the Netherlands - we are happy to be in the Champions League, but it is becoming very difficult to compete."
