Netherlands are better than Barcelona and Real Madrid, says Mark van Bommel

Mark van Bommel has hailed Netherlands national team, and stated that, given the opportunity, they would make short work of the likes of AC Milan, Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Bert van Marwijk's team are much-fancied to win Euro 2012 after an impressive qualifying campaign, finishing top of Group E with nine wins from 20 games.

With the likes of Robin van Persie, Wesley Sneijder and Rafael van der Vaart in their line-up, the veteran midfielder feels the Oranje would beat the Clasico sides, if the opportunity ever arose.

The story is too old to be commented.

LOL they wouldn't beat Barcelona, maybe Milan and Madrid. As neoragex said above, they couldn't beat Spain where it mattered, they sure as hell wouldn't beat the best team in the world.
