netherlands at the FIFA World Cup 2022

For the Netherlands, this will be the first World Cup over the eight-year period: they missed the 2018 tournament in Russia, having failed to qualify. In the last century, such incidents happened periodically even with Johan Cruyff in the line-up, and in the current century, the Netherlands did not go to South Korea and Japan in 2002. However, in all their history of performances at the World Cups, Oranje have always reached at least the Round of 16. Before the failure in the last qualification, they ranked second at the World Cup 2010 in South Africa, and at the next one in Brazil, they won bronze, so traditionally this is a strong team.

Path of the Netherlands to the 2022 World Cup

The Netherlands national team is one of the most interesting in the current tournament, since it is not clear what to expect of them. Every generation can surprise. Virgil van Dijk has his hardest season in the Premier League. Another experienced player Memphis Depay, the European top scorer of the qualifying tournament together with Harry Kane, has just recovered from an injury. The light of the past generation stars, such as Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong, has kind of faded, and now it is the very moment for them to draw attention to themselves and show all their talent. And, of course, it wi ll be interesting to watch promising newcomers from Ajax and PSV.

The Netherlands national team did not face the true test. In qualifying group G, they ranked first, outperforming Turkey and Norway; the final advantage of the Dutch was only two points.

Are Netherlands already in playoffs? No doubt.

At the group stage, the Netherlands should not have any difficulties. Even in the match against Senegal, the main competitor for the first place, they are deemed to be clear favourites. In any case, there are two tickets to the playoffs, and two other teams are obvious outsiders. Ecuador and Qatar, the host of the tournament, need to compete, but not more than that. So we are waiting for the Netherlands in the Round of 16 after a warm-up.

Bookmakers are also confident that the Netherlands will reach the next stage. In their opinion, the Louis van Gaal’s team is in the 7th-8th place among the contenders for the title.
