Can the Netherlands go all the way in this World Cup? –

The Netherlands are one of the biggest names in World football and surprisingly, they have never able to win football’s biggest prize. The Dutch have finished runners-up on three occasions – 1974, 1978, 2010. They also secured a third place finish in 2014 in Brazil. Fans will be hoping that this current crop of players can help the nation break this long-standing jinx.
