The Netherlands at the FIFA World Cup
The Netherland national team have reached the Final of the World Cup three times but never managed to win. In 1974 the Netherland national team lost out to West Germany and in the following edition they lost against Argentina after extra time. During that time the Netherlands had one of the best squads around with some of the best talent in the world.
Recently, in 2010, the Netherlands national team managed to win all the games leading to the Final but lost out against Spain, making it the third Final that the Netherlands national team lost.
Netherlands successes and failures at the previous FIFA World Cup
It is difficult to state that losing a Final is a success for the Netherlands national team but the campaign in 2010 was a perfect run up until the Final. With the Golden age of players within their ranks and no trophies to their name it might be more a disappointment rather than a success. With the likes of Robben, Van Persie, Sneijder and many others that made the Netherlands national team one of the most feared teams in the world.
After such great teams it was a disappointment for the Oranje that they did not make it to the Group Stages in Russia. The team bounced back positively after making a return to the World Cup stage as they qualified for the Qatar World Cup.
Netherland’s road to the Qatar 2022 World Cup

Timber at the time of writing plays for Ajax but it won’t be for long as he is linked with a move to one of the biggest teams in the world and many are expecting him to join Manchester United due to Erik ten Hag being the manager of the English side now.
