At Hunter’s we are great fans of soccer and follow the European cup closely. European Soccer Cup is one of the most anticipated events in the sports world. Teams from all of Europe go head-to-head against each other to bag points and win the glory for their nation.
The Netherlands has always been home of great players and has always been a joy to watch. Now, it is time for the Dutch players to show what they are made of.
You look back at the history of the country and see players like Robin van Persie, Arjen Robben, Dennis Bergkamp, Johan Cruyff – the list could go on.
Netherlands and their odds to win the European Soccer Cup
The group stage is now behind us, and more than half of the tournament has been played.
The picture is now getting clearer on the teams that can prove to be a threat for the competitors and it is fair to say that Netherlands is one of them.
The knockout stages are always a bump in the road. After all, it is a sport and there will be sudden turns – there will be surprises on every corner.
Even top performers such as the Netherlands don’t have room for any errors. They make one mistake, or one wrong move can cost them the whole tournament.
Every team is going to be one bad day away from being out of the tournament.
Even after being fan favorites and completely dominating the group stages, some of the fans still believe that the odds need to be in their favor to win the tournament.
Oranje warriors have yet to perform consistently under the leadership of coach Frank de Boer. They have been on the scarier side of the matches, blowing late leads. They barely made it through against Ukraine, thanks to Denzel Dumfries’s 85th minute goal.
Dutch players to watch
Netherlands have once again stood up with a lot of talent in the team and needless to say, has one of the top squads in the tournament with players like Frenkie de Jong – Barcelona’s star, Memphis Depay – Lyon’s lion, Georginio Wijnaldum – Liverpool’s main man and many others.
Times like these, it becomes really exciting to see players like these carrying the team to the finals and fighting for its glory.
When youngsters look up to them and see the kind of commitment these players are showing towards international games, they automatically feel the urge to fight for the country.
Netherlands EURO 2020 ODDS
The Netherlands is not the same threat as they used to be with their star-studded line up. Even though the Oranje failed to qualify for 2016 and 2018 tournaments, they look promising at this stage.
Everyone is counting on Memphis Depay, the lyon star, to be the backbone for his nation. He is also on the verge of winning the golden boot if he continues to perform consistently in the future games.
The 1998 European Championship winners are now more ready than ever to step into the field and win it.
In the world of football, there are many twists and turns. Some players shine at the very end and some go home with a runner-up medal.
So, it is permissible to add that Netherlands have been phenomenal in tournaments on not all, but most of the occasions – they have the same fire this time – when once lit, will never stop moving forward.
