Are Holland over-rated?

Granted, this is their seventh appearance in the World Cup finals and they have been in the final twice; in 1974 and 1978, but they have never won the cup.

Even the Johan Cruyff inspired dream team playing total football could not overcome the mastery of Argentina, or the discipline of Germany.

Holland the country.

Match Reports.

Group Tables.


Holland thumped five goals past South Korea in the group matches, but found it harder going against Yugoslavia in the second round.

Justice was finally done when they removed the cheating, diving Argentineans from the World Stage in the quarter finals.

The semi-final against Brazil was tight, but the Dutch fail to get their hands on the World cup again; this time not even completing their penalties.

Lost the Third Place play off against Croatia.
