Marten De Roon Atalanta Serie A
Marten de Roon was hilariously trolled by his own club Atalanta after he scored in their win over Real Betis in a friendly.
  • Atalanta troll De Roon
  • Poke fun at Netherlands' World Cup exit
  • De Roon scored in Atalanta's friendly win

WHAT HAPPENED? The Dutch midfielder posted a screenshot on Twitter with a 2-0 scoreline in favour of Atalanta and his name on the scoresheet. His caption read: "Things you wished you see in a game versus Argentina instead of a friendly."

In reply, Atalanta posted a meme with a photo of the player with his head in his hands and the text 'When you score an amazing goal but it isn't the World Cup quarter-final'.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: De Roon featured in the Netherlands' starting line-up in the quarter-final tie against Argentina. The Dutch came back from a two-goal deficit only to lose the tie in a penalty shootout.

WHAT NEXT FOR ATALANTA? The Italian club play one more friendly game against AZ Alkmaar on December 29 before facing Spezia in Serie A on January 4.
