Group C



World Cup participations: 7
Greatest World Cup achievement: 2nd place (1974, 1978)

Holland has qualified without problems in a strong group against Czech Republic and Romania - that shows the good form of the team coached by Marco van Basten. Captain and goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar has shown his class with many great saves - the Dutch owe him a lot.

There are plenty of stars - first of all Ruud van Nistelrooy Man United's top striker, his attacking colleague Chelsea's Arjen Robben, Rafael van der Vaart and still some old acquaintances like van Bronckhorst or Cocu. The only weakness could be the missing experience of the lot of youngsters.

The group with Argentina, Serbia and Ivory Coast ist the most difficult one - you can also drop out there, but if Holland get their way (and we think they will do) they could go very far.

The odds on Holland as world cup winner were not too low
- 15.0 at Betandwin.
For a bet on group winner Holland you get 2.45.


 The inventors of total football, Dutch football is a football loverís joy. They have a way with the ball and are second to none in their skills. Holland has produced world-class players like Cruyff, van Basten, Gullit, Bergkamp, Rijkaard and Davids, in the last three decades. Striker Ruud van Nistelrooy teaming up with 19-year-old Wesley Sneijder and a host of the very best from European leagues makes this squad a heady mixture. 

However all is not very well with the team. The very fact that the players come from all over Europe also becomes its bane as it paves the way for internal bickering and a plethora of other problems like racial issues and factionalism. Abounding talent also brings with it abundant problems. Coaches then tend to use an iron hand, which in turn causes heart burn for the star players. The teamís fortunes are affected when these differences and ego problems are carried over to the pitch. If super egos can be kept under check and self-destructive tendencies curbed, the Dutch can surely have a go at the magnificent Cup of World supremacy.

Coach: Marco Van Basten

Record: Joint hosts in 2000 and won the Final in 1988 beating Russia 2-0. 

Players to Watch out for: Ruud van Nistelrooy , Wesley Sneijder, Robin van Persie, Arjen Robben
