Netherlands vs Northern Ireland Match Preview

Northern Ireland’s ‘catch us if you can’ strategy in Euro 2020 Qualifying Group C now looks like falling short of its target – and defeat looks likely when they visit Rotterdam.

While the Netherlands were participating in the UEFA Nations League finals in June, the Irish made hay by completing four wins out of four against Belarus and Estonia to set a scorching pace with Germany at the top of the table – in the hope of giving the Dutch too much ground to make up in the race for automatic places at next year’s tournament.

But perhaps what Michael O’Neill’s side did not expect was the Netherlands winning 4-2 in Germany last month – and that means that if the Oranje triumph on Thursday, all three of them will be tied at the top of the standings on 12 points.

With Northern Ireland’s last two games being at home to the Netherlands and away to Germany, they simply have to find some way of carving out a victory or, at the very least, a couple of draws with the Dutch to keep their hopes alive.

However, Ronald Koeman’s men have improved greatly on the malfunctioning team that missed out on qualifying for the last two major tournaments.

They should be too good for Northern Ireland, whose solid defensive record suggests they will not suffer a heavy beating while causing little in the way of problems for a Virgil van Dijk-led Dutch rearguard.
