Wesley Sneijder has issued an apology to Netherlands fans after his side slumped to a 2-1 loss to Germany in their second Euro 2012 game.

Bert van Marwijk’s men sit bottom of Group B, having also lost their opening game to Denmark, and the Inter playmaker said the Dutch were their own worst enemies against Germany.

“I do apologise to everyone for everything,” he told De Telegraaf. “This is very hard. We didn’t see this coming. There is a real sense that we let the Germans win.”

However, Sneijder insisted his team-mates were focused on securing progression to the next round, which a two-goal victory over Portugal would achieve, assuming Germany beat Denmark.

“It was hard,” he said. “We have now lost twice, but we still have a chance. We need to keep believing in it.

“I actually thought we were out. I hadn’t thought much about the scenario as it stands. I realise that if we beat Portugal, we still have a chance. We need to go for it.”
