Slovak midfielder Mioslav Stoch is revelling in his nationâ€™s run to the last-16 and says their nothing to lose attitude that carried them past Italy 3-1 wil serve them well agaisnt Holland too.
â€œWe didnâ€™t have anything to lose because no one expected us to beat Italy, they had all the pressure,â€ said Stoch, who plies his club trade with Turkish giants Fenerbahce.
â€œIt will be similar against the Dutch because they have to win, they are expected to, and the pressure will be on them.
â€œWhereas we again will have nothing to lose. Nobody expected us to go through then and no one expects us to now.â€
The Netherlands take on Slovakia at Durban on Monday afternoon.
