Berlin (Germany), July 6: Netherlands soccer team is planning to replicate on Saturday, what the Australian cricket squad did on November 19, 2023 in Ahmedabad against hosts India.

Seems strange and bit irrelevant? Comparisons bit unlikely? 

Well, drawing comparisons between a game of soccer and a cricket match, despite the occasions, is bit awkward and unappealing.

Let's see if they are actually irrelevant, or there is some degree of similarity between the two situations.

Well, prior to beating India in the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 Final in Ahmedabad on November 19 last year, Australian skipper Pat Cummins in the pre-match media interaction had stated that the Aussies love to silence huge crowd.

Cummins indicated that his team enjoys silencing the home crowd and beat the opposition at their own backyards. They actually did that when they defeated India badly in the final and lifted the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 trophy.

The same logic can be applied to a situation, where a certain team enjoys more crowd support, but the mach is won by the other team.

Prior to their UEFA Euro 2024 quarterfinal against Turkey later on Saturday, Netherlands plan to do a similar act.

The Dutch aim to silence the Turkey supporters in Germany, where the UEFA Euro  2024 is being hosted. The Turkey supporters have thronged every venue in huge numbers, where Turkey team has played their matches. The fans have cheered the Turkey players with all sincerity.

Reacting on the situation, Netherlands coach Ronald Koeman said silencing Turkey's boisterous supporters will be key to their success in Saturday’s Euro 2024 quarter-final.

As a matter of fact, a large Turkish diaspora in Germany means the national team has been backed in great number in all of their games so far and that is likely to continue in Berlin as well where the Netherlands-Turkey quarterfinal will be played.

But will the Dutch be able to replicate what Cummins led Australians did successfully in Ahmedabad against India on November 19, 2023? That answer can only be clear from the result of the Netherlands-Turkey quarterfinal match of UEFA Euro 2024 on Saturday.
