While the Dutch national team in Poland (with three Surinamese players in the starting lineup) took over the Nations League, the Suriname national team played their first two exhibition matches in the Netherlands.
In Almeri against Nicaragua, the 1-0 lead was given just before time, but a header from substitute Jerdy Hiltermann was good for a win (2-1) so that new interim coach Aaron Winter could start his tenure as national coach with a win.
Natio, nicknamed the team, gathered under interim national coach Aaron Winter in the Amsterdam region to prepare for matches in March of the CONCACAF (Confederation of Nations) Nations League.
After Dean Gorey and Stanley Menzo, Winter became the third national coach in a short time
And at Almere City Stadium, where a brass band escorted the spectators to their seats, they were never as busy as on a Thursday evening in September. Suriname (at 143rd in the world rankings) was almost the entire match stronger than the opponent four places higher in the FIFA World Ranking. Through former Feyenoord player Mitchell T Freddy, who now plays in Abu Dhabi, the team advanced after just half an hour.
Suriname entered Almir with several (former) Premier League players such as Rydgesiano Habs, Florian Josephzon and captain Shaquille Benas. Warner Hahn was on target. Unfortunately, Tjaron Chery, who scored in the Champions League against Paris Saint-Germain for Maccabi Haifa last week, and Bundesliga player Sheraldo Becker, were not in Almeri.
Aaron Winter (55) with the Suriname national team in the Netherlands to play two exhibition matches. The successor to Stanley Minzo is the interim national coach of the “Natio” team, which includes many Dutch Surinamese. “I am honored to be the national coach.”
Training matches should bring unity to Natio, where the professionalization has been carried out for several years now, so that the Dutch Surinamese can now play for the national team. But the training matches (which are still played against PEC Zwolle on Monday) should convince national coach Aaron Winter to stay longer with Al Ittihad. Winter is the third national coach in a short time after Dean Gorey and Stanley Minzo. The international player 84 times with the Dutch national team and the Federation decides after training matches whether to sit on the bench in March during the Nations League match against Mexico.
The enthusiastic crowd witnessed former ADO Den Haag player Shaquille Pinas hit the post half an hour before the end of the match led by referee Serdar Gözübüyük. In the final stage, Almeri striker Jeridi Hiltermann became the golden guard for the cheering crowd, who almost celebrated the victory in the friendly match as a victory in one of the official matches of the World Cup.
