  • Netherlands have kept five clean sheets in their last six matches.
  • Germany, France, Italy, Croatia and Argentina are the only sides to beat the Oranje in their last 33 matches.
  • Wout Weghorst has scored five goals in his last nine caps for the Netherlands, including two in his last three.
  • Netherlands have opened the scoring in each of their last six matches.

The final test for the Oranje

It’s been a long time since the Netherlands made waves at the European Championships. Between 1976 and 2004, they made at least the semi-finals in five of eight editions of this tournament, only failing to qualify once and even winning it in 1988. Since then, however, they’ve never made it past the quarter-finals and didn’t qualify at all in 2016.

However, there’s another exciting crop of Dutch talents emerging and after reaching the quarter-finals of the 2022 World Cup and only exiting to eventual winners Argentina on penalties, expectations have been raised.

The Netherlands are in good form with just one defeat from their last six matches, but face a tough group at the Euros containing France and two dark horses in Austria and Poland. This is their final test before them with plenty for Ronald Koeman still to figure out, including who is his best No.9 and how to balance the midfield.

Iceland head to Rotterdam fresh from a memorable and shocking 1-0 win over England at Wembley and will look to make a statement against another international giant here.

With home advantage and a superior squad, it’s little surprise to see the Netherlands as heavy favourites here. However, Iceland showed on Friday at Wembley just how they can upset the odds.

Netherlands vs Iceland team news

Ian Maatsen, Quinten Timber and goalkeeper Nick Olij have all missed out on the final squad for Euro 2024, as has the injured Marten de Roon. However, the Netherlands still boast some formidable talent with the likes of Virgil van Dijk, Matthijs de Ligt, Frenkie de Jong, Xavi Simons and Cody Gakpo all preparing to head to Germany.

Iceland may be tempted to stick with the same XI that beat England on Friday, with Jon Thorsteinsson scoring the 12th-minute winner at Wembley.

Iceland have won the two most recent meetings with the Netherlands without conceding a goal, playing a huge part in the Oranje failing to make Euro 2016 — a competition where they reached the quarter-finals, famously beating England along the way. That said, this is a very different Netherlands team from nine years ago.
