STRENGTHS: The Dutch front four is as strong as anything in world football – they can win matches on their own.
WEAKNESSES: With first choice left-back Erik Pieters injured and Joris Mathijsen a weak link, the left side of defence looks extremely shaky.
Robin van Persie
We don’t need to tell you anything about RVP – he’s the best striker in the world. Simple.
Mark van Bommel
He’s 35 now, but MVB is still an absolute monster. Some say he’s dirty, others say he’s the ultimate tough-tackling midfielder.

Official language: Dutch
Best ever player: Johan Cruyff
