Netherlands

Netherlands play Football and hail from Europe.

The Netherlands are a good side, if not quite as good as they used to be. Some of their stars of recent years have retired, and they have an inexperienced defense. Nonetheless, with players like Wesley Sneijder, Arjen Robben and Robin van Persie in the team they will hope to go a long way.

In the last World cup they got to the final before playing a horrible game of anti-football in the final against Spain which resulted in 7 of their players being booked and one sent off, and a 1-0 defeat. Then in Euro 2012 they performed miserably in losing all 3 of their games. Will it be feast or famine this time round for the men in orange?

They qualified from an easy group with 9 wins and a draw, but haven't done well in games against big teams in the last couple of years, which has seen them fall in the rankings from 2nd to 15th. Their last 4 friendlies have seen draws against Portugal, Japan and Columbia and a 1-0 defeat to France.
