Netherlands coach Louis van Gaal says fans who are boycotting the World Cup over human rights concerns are right to do so but hopes if his side get to next month’s final they will at least watch the game on television.
A recent survey of 28,000 respondents in the Netherlands showed only 14 per cent were interested in following the tournament after years of negative publicity about Qatar.
On supporters boycotting the competition, Van Gaal said: “They are right to do that, but I hope we play so well that at the end of the tournament when we play the final, they’ll be watching on TV how good we are.”
