Netherlands Team

Having appeared just brief in South Africa, Holland should be hunting to arrive one more effectively at Euro 2012. The Dutch suffered a heart-breaking defeat to Spain in the final of the 2010 World Cup but showed no hangover as they romped through qualifying for this summer’s European Championship in Poland and Ukraine.

They face a tough test in the group stage after being drawn alongside Germany, Portugal and Denmark.

How They Qualified

Holland done affordably their job of passing for Euro 2012, accumulating nine victories from 10 games, making merely loss emerging in the definitive group game soon after they had absolutely guaranteed themselves of a place in this competition.

They opened up with a 5-0 rout of San Marino before edging past both Finland and Moldova by one goal. They hit top speed as they put four past both Sweden and Hungary, and the Dutch continued their free-scoring ways by netting five in the second game against Hungary before hammering San Marino 11-0. Wins over.

Star Players

Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder was one of the elite performers at the 2010 World Cup and he will again play a key role here.

Sneijder is the complete package and should provide plenty of opportunities for strikers Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Robin van Persie. The 27-year-old also has an eye for goal too, as he showed in South Africa, and that makes him all the more dangerous.
