Netherlands National Team



Netherlands National Team

The Netherlands have never won the world cup and they find themselves only two wins away to win it. Holland, as it is frequently referred, will face Uruguay July 6th which I believe will be their easier game. I say easier because they will either have to face Germany or Spain in the final game and we all know that Germany is a soccer giant. Their best chance to win it is if Spain defeats Germany because Spain is the weaker of the two.

This will be the third try to win the world cup for the Netherlands because they have found themselves in the finals two previous times. The first one was against Germany in 1974 and the second one was against Argentina in 1978. It has been a long wait for them to be in the finals and this is their chance.
