Portugal against the Netherlands a Hard Match
The third and final group game for the Dutch team is meeting with Portugal. On June 17 in Kharkiv stairs either country at 20:45 pm, along with Germany – Denmark. The clash with the number five of the FIFA World Ranking can sometimes all be decisive in group B. The Netherlands must win by two clear goals at once is still a chance to go to the eighth finals. It is also important that Germany wins over Denmark. In that respect, Orange must be a little bit worried. The Dutch team has is not such a good record against the Portuguese. Southern Europeans were both at Euro 2004 as the world championship two years later, the end station for Orange. In general, Portugal, or as true the Netherlands angstgegner be put down. Of the ten meetings between the two teams was only the second game in 1991 won by Orange. Richtard Witschge took time for the only goal. Portugal was the strongest and six times in three cases, the game ended in a draw.
One advantage is that Maniche of Portugal stopped playing football
For the Netherlands it is possible that a benefit maniche stopped playing football because he scored in both 2004 and 2006, but that the Portuguese national team is not necessarily quality surrendered. The country has a strong delegation of Real Madrid and Pepe and Fabio Coentr?o back, but of course captain Cristiano Ronaldo as an absolute star. Ronaldo may well be the tormentor of the Orange go, because the strength of the team of Bert van Marwijk is not really on the back positions. Except Ronaldo Nani will also defend the Netherlands on the test set go, but on the other hand, the Portuguese defense to get heavy. Whether it’s Robin van Persie is in the striker will start or Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, it seems almost a guarantee for goals. Especially when you’re around it can still count on players like Arjen Robben, Wesley Sneijder, Afellay and Dirk Kuijt. For Orange is therefore mainly just trying to find, in the ten meetings between Portugal never knew more than twice to score. So there are opportunities for the Dutch team.!
Netherlands or Portugal along with Germany towards the quarter-finals
It will of course depend on the results from the first two group matches, the teams onto the field steps. Especially when both countries for the full profits must go can be an interesting duel. The probability seems high that Portugal or the Netherlands or Germany with direction quarterfinals will go. Although it is not excluded that a salon or draw a different outcome, the two teams both in the knock-outfase brings. On paper, the Netherlands is on hand for the favorite, but as I said you know it with the Portuguese never. Moreover, the situation after two games in Group B are completely different. One is especially hoped and that is a match against Portugal once the terminus for the Dutch national team. If this is the case, then become a disappointing European Championship, but for the same money, this meeting inspired by the Netherlands to the European title helps.
