Netherlands Euro Squad

Holland Euro 2012 Betting

Holland were one of the leading fancies in the betting for Euro 2012 as they attempted to win their first major championship since they won the Euros in 1988. That side boasted talents like Ruud Gullit and Marco Van Basten, while the current crop of Wesley Sneijder and Rafael van der Vaart will attempt to emulate those legends. The Dutch have often fallen just short in major finals when well backed in the betting in recent years as they lost to Spain in the World Cup in 2010 and were knocked out in the semi-finals at Euro 2000 and 2004.

It was a dismal story for Holland at Euro 2012 as well as they failed to reach the quarter-finals after losing all three of their Group B matches.They suffered a surprise opening match defeat at the hands of Denmark before losing 2-1 to bitter rivals Germany. Portugal made it no wins from three for the Dutch by winning 2-1 in the final group game.

Current Form and Key Players

Holland cruised into the finals of Euro 2012 as they dominated their qualification group. They won nine of their ten matches in Group E and suffered their only defeat in what was effectively a dead rubber against Sweden in their final group match. It continued a fine couple of years for the Dutch after they reached the final of the 2010 World Cup, only to be beaten by Spain. They boast a similar squad from two years ago and will be hoping that they are stronger for the experience.

Their midfield boasts a wealth of qualify as Wesley Sneijder and Rafael van der Vaart. The latter will be well known to English fans after a successful couple of years with Tottenham in the Premier League, while Jan-Klaas Huntelaar bangs in the goals for Schalke and he has been a transfer target for a number of top clubs around Europe.

Holland's Key Players:

  • Rafael van der Vaart (Tottenham)
  • Wesley Sneijder (Inter Milan)
  • Jan-Klaas Huntelaar (Schalke)
  • Dirk Kuyt (Liverpool)
  • Arjen Robben (Bayern Munich)
