The result meant that the Netherlands finished last in the group stage for the first time at a major tournament after a 2-1 defeat to Portugal followed a 1-0 loss to Denmark and a 2-1 reverse against Germany.

"I just lost a third game at the tournament, you should ask me all questions but not about my future," van Marwijk said.

"But I signed a contract till 2016 not until 2014."

Germany beat Denmark 2-1 in Sunday`s other game to top Group B, the so-called Group of Death, with three wins out of three.

Portugal will face the Czech Republic in the quarterfinals, while Germany will play Greece.
