‘I’ve been training a lot lately’
The wonderful solo in the third quarter broke the top match in the Wagener Stadium. His own description, also pronounced at top speed: ‘I pick up the ball at its own 23-meter line. I see space. I use my speed, find space behind the defense and run them out. It was a shot from the barrel, in the long corner. I’ve been training a lot lately. I am also more focused on scoring. I like that too. In the first half I should have scored, but I was missing. ‘
Whether he had made it so often? ‘I make them very often during training’, Kellerman said, and he meant it seriously.
‘What a world goal’
Elsemieke Havenga, the mother of his teammate Martijn Havenga, came to him after the game. “What a world goal,” she jubilated. It was also a special goal. After such a long rush across the field, it is normally difficult to finish with the climax. But Kellerman did what he can sometimes leave. He was not rushed, not out of balance, but in perfect cadence, and aimed from the right side of the circle against the left side board. Hard. Decisive. ‘Beautiful, relaxed in the corner. You just have to do it. You know that if you aim well, it’s a goal. “
In less than ten weeks the World Cup will start in India. Kellerman was not selected for the Champions Trophy in Breda . If the international who debuted at the age of 25 in Orange in May received a message, he will at least show that he is very busy with it. He has a different role at Kampong by stopping strikers Constantijn Jonker, Quirijn Caspers and Philip Meulenbroek anyway. “There is now more responsibility with me and other boys. I am now one of the oldest guests, who must ensure that the training and competitions run and the youngsters are guided. But I’m not really busy with India tonight. From Monday to Wednesday I am working on the Oranje, when we train. The rest of the week with Kampong. On Friday and Sunday I have to pop in the matches. Getting profit. “
