During the warm up for training, manager Bert van Marwijk heard monkey chants from fans in the stadium and decided to move the players over to the other part of the stadium to avoid it. He told a press conference:
"The advantage is that we now know what we can await. Very attractive,"Ahhh Poland, what a wonderful place. Platini should probably make sure he has a gun in his office incase the press he gets becomes too much but also incase there is a zombie uprising. You can never be too prepared for that.
