Frank de Boer hit out at Gibraltar for perceived histrionics that he felt amounted to “anti-football” during Netherlands’ 7-0 win on Tuesday.

The Oranje crushed their hosts in World Cup qualifying Group G, scoring six times in the second half as the Dutch took full advantage of their superiority – Gibraltar did not have a single shot.

Steven Berghuis, Luuk de Jong, Georginio Wijnaldum, Donyell Malen, Donny van de Beek and a Memphis Depay brace did the damage for the away side, who were challenged by De Boer to net at least five.

The former Ajax boss had been frustrated by his team’s profligacy in the 2-0 win over Latvia at the weekend and made the curious decision to publicly set a goals target.

While he was largely pleased with the manner of the win, he took aim at Gibraltar for their conduct during the match.

“I am very satisfied with the seven goals, but it is really almost anti-football,” he told NOS.

“All the players going down after a single touch, while every time the whole bench went crazy, complaining to the referee.
