England haven’t a victory against the Netherlands since 1982. The triumph against Germany in Berlin certainly contributed to the confidence of the team and they are able to continue their winning streak against rival shaken. England won all matches on home soil since September 2014 and therefore the fans are hoping for an eighth consecutive victory.
Fraser Forster returned to the national team, but failed to keep his net dry after conceded two goals against Germany but England demonstrated outstanding performance in the last half hour to secure victory after goals from Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy and Eric Dier. It seems that Hodgson finally has enough quality strikers who can guarantee a good result in France this summer, but there are still a lot of work that coach should do in defense, although the team clean sheet in six of their last seven home games.
The team of Danny Blind were to minutes from draw game with France, but Blaise Matuidi brought victory to “The Blues” two minutes before the end of the meeting. Griezman and Giroud gave advance of the French team, but Luc de Jong and Ibrahim Afellay back “The Oranje” in the game. Only two minutes after goals from Afellay, the hosts conceded a third goal after midfielder PSG Matyuidi benefit from the assistance of Marseille.
Now Holland travel to England, hoping to repeat the result from the previous visit, when they defeated the “Three Lions” .With 3:2, but this time Robben is out of the squad, but Huntelaar is far from his best form . The goalkeeper of Ajax Jasper Cillessen broke his nose during exercise, so Danny Blind called Michel Vorm from Tottenham to replace him. Van Ginkel does it replace Ajax captain Davy Klaassen, who received a knee injury while Wesley Sneijder also have a injury and will not take part in the game.
England are still looking for their first triumph against the Netherlands in this century and, judging by their current form, we can determine the home as favorites in the upcoming clash. Netherlands are far from performance during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, when they finished on Third place and will be very difficult to stop the goal machines Kane and Vardy, so expect the success for “The Three Lions”.
