Netherlands star De Roon brilliantly trolled by his own club Atalanta
- 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.
