Dutch plan to open campaign in style

The Netherlands open their 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ campaign against Denmark on Monday determined to brush off their tag of group phase heroes, knockout stage zeros.

The Oranje have never won the FIFA World Cup, but reached the finals of both the 1974 and 1978 tournaments playing their brand of flowing football. Dutch coach Bert van Marwijk has an embarrassment of riches in his squad for the Group E clash at Soccer City with the likes of Arsenal's Robin van Persie, Real Madrid's Rafael van der Vaart and Inter Milan's Wesley Sneijder.

The story is too old to be commented.
