Facts :
Holland has taken part in the FIFA World Cup qualifiers 14 times and has won through to the finals on seven of those occasions. Their heyday was without doubt the 1970s. In 1974 and 1978 the Dutch reached the FIFA World Cup final.
In the Germany 1974 final they took an early lead but eventually succumbed 2-1 to the hosts Germany. Four years later the host nation again stole glory from them. Argentina, gifted with an outstanding performance by striker Mario Kempes, won 3-1 in extra time.
Since then the Dutch have waited in vain for another chance to compete in the final. Frequently among the favorites for the FIFA World Cup, Holland have repeatedly failed to live up to their promise. They came closest in 1998, but after a thrilling semi-final lost the penalty shoot-out against Brazil.
