Holland's matches at Stade de France
About the Dutch football team
Nicknamed the Oranje, because of their famous orange shirts, the Dutch football team is composed of the best Dutch players, under the auspices of the Royal Netherlands Football Association.
It created its fame in the 1970s with its famous and formidable "total football". The Oranje have been coached by Danny Blind since July 2015.
The Dutch team has qualified 10 times for the final phase of the FIFA World Cup, 9 times for the final phase of the European Football Championship and 8 times for the final phase of the Olympic Games. The team won Euro 1988 and has reached three World Cup finals (in 1974, 1978 and 2010) without ever winning the tournament.
Holland's previous matches at Stade de France
On March 5 2014, the French faced the Dutch team, for their first game of 2014, also their first friendly match after qualifying for the 2014 World Cup. After a successful performance at Stade de France, the French dominated the Dutch (2-0). Benzema (32nd minute) and Matuidi (41st minute) scored for France. The Dutch world vice-champions were thus defeated for the first time since August 15 2012.
The French side was masterful and delighted the crowd at Stade de France with two attractive goals in the first half. The second half was, however, much less attractive, but regardless, it is victory that counts!
On June 13 1998, during the 98 World Cup, Holland and Belgium competed at Stade de France in Group E. The match ended in a goalless draw. At the end of this meeting, Holland and Belgium both found themselves in 2nd place in the group, each with two remaining games to be played.
