THEY were not selected for the 2018 World Cup, but the Netherlands have returned!
They start off with a thrilling match against Afcon champions Senegal.
In a match plagued by so many laser pens that the stadium in Dakar looked more like an Ibiza nightclub, Sadio Mane and the Lions of Teranga defeated Egypt on penalties to advance to the tournament. Mo Salah, a fellow Liverpool star, was playing for Egypt.
At one point, it appeared as though Turkey would win a World Cup spot away from Holland.
However, after a disastrous Euro 2020 campaign, Louis van Gaal took over as manager, and his team went the rest of qualifying undefeated. Things then began to stabilize.
After the draw, former Manchester United manager Van Gaal admitted that he didn’t know much about the Senegal football team but had visited the nation while on vacation.
