The Netherlands - The European Dream

Hey guys! I decided to start a new story (hopefully longer than 4 days) with the Netherlands!

As a Dutchie I must say I'm quite embarrassed that we didn't make it to the European Cup (thanks Danny Blind for fucking up the summer of 16 million Dutch people). The Dutch national has build up a great reputation which makes it more hard to realise that we aren't at the EC. In my opinion we're in a gap between the new generation and the old one, Robin van Persie is not good enough for the first team anymore, just like Heitinga, de Jong, Mathijsen etc, and players like Bazoer, Depay and Klaassen aren't good enough yet. We have to realise that we aren't the team of 1988 anymore, except Robben we have no world class players like Pogba, Zlatan, Müller. If we want to reach something, we have to reach it as a team. van Gaal realised that straight away in 2014, that's what makes him a genius in my opinion. He pushed everything out of this team that was possible, making the Dutch team the 3d of the world. In my story I'm going to try to reach the EC and then I'll see if I can come far in the tournament! I hope you'll enjoy it!

In my story I'll be Frank de Boer, ex-internatonal and assistent manager of the Dutch national team
Good luck man!


Interesting! 4th of the world is an awesome place to start with! Let's see if that'll change soon! Looking forward to my first match against Czech republic!
Good to see an international story, best of luck!


Well that's quite a hard group. In my opinion France is way better and Sweden and Bulgaria are on the same level. So this isn't going to be as easy as my of you may think! We'll see if we can qualify to Russia!




FIrst match of Frank de Boer as manager of the national team, I'd call this one decent, as Czech Republic is not an easy opponent. It was quite a boring match we barely had big chances therefore we need to have more possesion in the next match. 0-0, so let's win the next match against Iceland!


I just wanted to say my prayers are going to the Belgian people who were being attacked today in the centre of Brussels. My thoughts go to the family and the civilian of the beautiful Belgian city, as a Dutchman I feel very connected to the Belgians and I will think of them today.
