Can Holland breakthrough the Euro 2016 qualifying phase?

Yes, the Dutch football team is now in extreme difficulty. Can Holland overcome all the difficulties?

Holland staring Euro 2016 failure in the face and there’s nothing Arjen Robben can do
The Dutch have fallen some distance from the success of their World Cup campaign and are relying on others slipping up to even make the playoffs.

It is only 458 days since Holland stood within a penalty shoot-out of their second successive appearance in a World Cup final but after tonight, on what will be Robin van Persie’s 100th international game, some of the finest players in Dutch football history could already be free to make their holiday plans next summer.

Blind has overseen two losses in two matches in charge

With 24 teams in the finals, qualification for the European Championship has theoretically never been easier but the fate of Holland, the champions in 1988, is already out of their hands. They have recently fallen from their previously constant position this century inside the top 10 of the Fifa rankings but of greatest concern as they prepare for their final two matches of Euro 2016 qualifying, against Kazakhstan tonight and the Czech Republic on Tuesday, is that they are currently fourth in Group A. Iceland and the Czech Republic are already out of sight but Holland now need one of these two teams to take points off Turkey over the next four days to have any chance even of a play-off place.

Add in the absence through injury of Ron Vlaar and Kevin Strootman and the very real possibility of Holland missing a first European Championship for 30 years becomes even more understandable. Robben, who only returned to training at Bayern Munich on Wednesday following his thigh injury, will again be a spectator over the coming week. “These two deciding games, I cannot do anything,” he says. “It’s just wait and pray and hopefully Turkey makes a mistake, we win our two qualifying makes, and we can make the play-offs.”

Humiliated Holland fail to qualify for Euro 2016 Holland have failed to qualify for the 2016 European Championships. A 2-3 defeat at home to the Czech Republic, coupled with Turkey’s 1-0 win over Iceland, means that the nation that finished third at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil will miss out altogether on next summer’s tournament. It’s an astonishing outcome for one of Europe’s powerhouses, who were crowned European champions in 1988 and were bronze medallists in 1992, 2000 and 2004. The last time the Dutch were absent from the European Championships was 1984. To make matters worse, Euro 2016,… Read more »


well, take a look at 2012 euro cup, they are out of game in first round too, 0 win all 3 lose Dutch disaster: Just how did Holland fail so miserably at Euro 2012? t’s the first time for over two decades that the Oranje have lost three games running. So how did it go so wrong? How did Bert Van Marwijk’s men fail to make it through to the quarter-finals? The Group of Death In the group of death, someone had to die. It was Holland. Beaten – perhaps fortuitously – by an organised Denmark in the first game,… Read more »
