VS. Venue, time and referee: All officials: Head to head overview between the two country's (Netherlands= Red): Overview of all competetive games between the two country's: Overview of all friendly games between the two country's: Fifa ranking of both country's since it's creation: Possible talking points: Will Vermeer be keeper again, or will van Gaal use another keeper with shifting demands from facing another opponent? BMI made some mistakes in build up and did not cover through all times against Estonia, while Vlaar was one of the better players in the away game against Romania. Will we keep the central defense as it is, or do we have to chance it up again? Are the crosses from Blind up to standard for the Dutch NT? Has de Guzman secured his spot as the controlling midfielder or did his sloppy passing in the second half open the door for Jordy Clasie? Strootman was probably the worst player against Estonia. Not for the first time. Is van Gaal right to put so much trust in a player with low handling speed, or is it time to start investing in other options? Maher only got into the team as Sneijder got injured. Is it time to say goodbye against our best player in 2008, 2010 and 2012 and give new 10's more of a chance or do we continue to keep faith in Sneijder as first captain and number 1 playmaker? Is Maher overrated in the Netherlands? Against Estonia we saw how important a scoring 10 can be, opening up the game for us at a perfect time. Maher is not clinical (missed 3 chances against Italy), does not have a great distance shot and also does not not have an acceleration that can break the line. He can only break the final line of the opponent with his passing and vision which is the same as the the other play makers offer. Other than being more dynamic than VdV and Sneijder, what does Maher have to offer the Dutch NT? Is Siem de Jong with his more vertical playing style not more suited to provide RvP a deep going outlet for his creative passing when he drops? Who else do you think would combine very well with RvP playing behind him? Is Huntelaar second striker behind RvP or third striker behind Lens? Van Gaal made 2 exceptions so far from his philosophy. One for Robben and one for Lens. Looks like van Gaal rates Lens quite a bit. Is Janmaat the biggest surprise of the van Gaal era so far? Finally, the Arena was not full last game and the same goes for the Italy game IIRC. How big of a loss is it that the Dutch NT games are not held in de Kuip?
