Holland in the 2006 World Cup

Koninklijke Nederlandse Voetbalbond
Group C

Serbia & Montenegro vs Holland in Leipzig:
It was almost a fight to hold on to the win for Holland, in the second-half, having dominated so much in the first forty five minutes.

Holland vs Côte d'Ivoire in Stuttgart:
After going into a two-goal lead, there were some nervous moments for Holland towards the end.

Holland vs Argentina in Frankfurt:
Having both qualified for the Second Round, Holland and Argentina gave a number of reserves a run, just to keep the momentum going.

Knockout Stage

Second Round
Portugal vs Holland in Nürnberg.
A classic game it wasn't, as twelve players were booked and two from each team sent off. If the game had gone to extra-time, there might not have been enough players left to finish the game.
