The Dutch face racist abuse during training

This is the extent of their love for the "beautiful game" for these Polish deadbeats

Being behind the Iron Curtain infinitely beats the sort of crap that regularly infects the Polish and Ukrainian leagues. The void left by Communism and increasing exposure to a multi-culturalism has been filled over the years with even more racism and anti-semitism.

With the benefit of hindsight, there seems something inevitable about the crowning of Spain as the world champions in South Africa two years ago. Yet the Netherlands came within minutes of taking the match to a penalty shoot-out and since then have continued the form that they demonstrated, becoming, in August of last year, only the second team in the history of the game to reach number one in FIFAs world rankings without having won the tournament.

The Dutch national manager Bert van Marwijk opted to play RvP behind the striker, in the no10 position, against Portugal last Sunday. He was desperate to turn things round and for once he gave in to the strong calls in Holland to play Huntelaar, the Bundeslega top scorer, and RvP, the PL top scorer, together up front.

Van Persie’s Euro 2012 performance could be blessing in disguise for Arsenal

Arsenal Insider at related • 0 views

There's no doubt that Arsenal striker Robin van Persie didn't live up to most people's expectations at Euro 2012. In fact, nobody on the Dutch team had a performance they could write home about. But he certainly isn't the first football star to have a mediocre major tournament and he definitely won't be the last.

Luck, we could posit, is more complex than simply being a matter of black and white. Whilst the Netherlands have a right to feel a little aggrieved that a couple of refereeing decisions might not have gone their way in Kharkiv this evening, there is a truth in the point that a team featuring such names as Arjen Robben, Robin Van Persie, Wesley Sneijder and John Heitinga shouldn't be depending upon the benevolence of the referees whistle in order to claim a point or more from a match against the group outsiders in the finals of a major tournament.

Van Persie could warm bench for Holland

There's a hot Dutch debate taking place across the sea concerning Arsenal's Robin van Persie and Schalke's Klaas-Jan Huntelaar. It appears the nation's football supporters are divided over who should start as striker for the upcoming Euro 2012 tournament in Poland and Ukraine.

In one corner we have the 28-year-old Golden-Boot winner van Persie, who scored 30 league goals for the Gunners this season and 37 overall, and in the other corner, 28-year-old Bundesliga marksman Huntelaar, who scored 29 league goals and 48 overall in 47 games.
