Information on Netherlands National Football Team World Cup tickets

Netherlands has been one of the elites in European football. They are the one which brought the revolutionary concept of ‘total football’ to the world. No wonder that they have been highly respected for introducing more attractive attacking football. However, their accolades are very few compared to their contenders such as France, Germany, Italy or Spain. De Oranje have just won one regional major title but not a single World Cup trophy in hand.
Overall Campaign
Netherlands have qualified in ten editions of the World Cup, with three of which reaching the finals, in 1974, 1978 and 2010. In Germany 1974, Rinus Michels’s men had no difficulty progressing from the first and second round as the group leader despite being seeded with Uruguay, Sweden and Bulgaria at the preliminary round plus Brasil, Argentina and East Germany at the next stage. Unfortunately, they were too confident in the summit and lost 1-2 to the host West Germany. In the following four year, Their squad was excluding Johan Cruyff as he withdrew for security reason. Holland remained the favorite. Yet, at the group stage, they only finished second, despite being included with Scotland, Peru and Iran. At the secondary stage, Ernst Happel’s men’s form were improving by leading the group after thumping Italy 2-1, hammering Austria 5-1 plus sharing spoils with Germany in a 2-2 draw. Nevertheless, once again, they were beaten 1-3 in the final by the host Argentina. Meanwhile, in 2010, Wesley Sneijder and Co edged out Slovakia, Brasil and Uruguay at the knock out stage before taking on Spain. Sadly, the lady luck was not on their side again and slumped to a 0-1 defeat.
In the other editions, De Oranje managed to finish the third place once in 2014, plus being eliminated at the quarter finals in 1994 and round of 16 in 1934, 1938, 1990 and 2006.
Iconic Moments
Holland’s moments of glory are not as many as most fans expect. The two possible ones were at the group opener in 2014 when they smashed Spain 5-1 as a sweet revenge for their loss in the final of the previous edition. Robin Van Persie and Arjen Robben bagged a brace each plus Stefan de Vrij’s goal responded Spain’s early lead by Xabi Alonso’s penalty. Another one was the quarter final in 2010 when they made a superb comeback against Brasil. After conceding from Robinho’s strike, Wesley Sneijder netted a brace and sent them through the semifinal.
Their most heartbreaking moment was probably in 1978 final. They were more dominant and ready to clinch the title. Arie Haan and Co had a chance to do so after Dick Nanninga equalized after Argentina took the lead through Mario Kempes. Unfortunately, their attempt before the extra time only hit the goal frame instead of finding the back of Albiceleste’s net. During the extra time, the host went wild by scoring two more. Mario Kempes and Daniel Bertoni sealed the host’s victory and sent them home in disappointment again.
Top Figures
In Dutch football, especially in their world cup campaign, Rinus Michels is definitely the one respected name who made great contribution for their remarkable results, followed by Ernst Happel and Bert Van Marwijk. They were the boss in charge of the team in 1974, 1978 and 2010 respectively, with the lines of stars on the pitch from Johan Cruyff, Johnny Rep, Johan Neskeens, Arie Haan, Wesley Sneijder, Arjen Robben, Giovanni Van Bronkhost and Mark Van Bommel.
