Friendly International matches
Match start: 19:45 (GMT+1)
In the program of current 10 days meetings of all national teams of our continent, beside the last matches of the 5th qualification round there are also planned some very interesting brand football teams battles.
One of these meetings with the participation of the national teams of the Netherlands and Italy will be held. 25th meeting of the modern teams of Danny Blind and Giampiero Ventura will start in Amsterdam at the famous Amsterdam-ArenA.
Depressing statistics of the oranges
It should be noted at once that squadra azzurra is very uncomfortable rival of the oranges. And that is historically correct and proved fact.
From the very beginning of the meeting of two national teams that was held on the 13th of May 1920 (1:1) the Flying Dutchmen were able to overplay the four-time World Cup champions. The most prominent victory of the national team of the Netherlands happened at the stage of group final tournament of EURO-2008;
09.06.2008. Bern. Group C. The Netherlands – Italy – 3:0;
Home fiasco of the team of Frank Rijkaard
And the national team of Italy in its turn had managed to win over its nearest rivals for 10 times. And here the most prominent was away victory of squadra azzurra at Amsterdam-ArenA during the semifinal of EURO-200 (the Netherlands-Belgium).
It is obvious that the fans of football remember how bright favorites the hosts of the tournaments were! But after the goalless draw in the normal and injury time, in the series of penalty shots squadra azzurra was stronger (3:1). And that is why instead of such highly predicted final of EURO-2000 with the teams of Frank Rijkaard and Roger Lemerre we observed the final France-Italy.
And now the results of the 5th round of the current European campaign. One more winning of the national team of Italy over the team of Albania (2:0) had increased greatly the chances of the national team of Giampiero Ventura to leave its group. But the national team of the Netherlands had greatly disappointed both by the match in Sofia and by its final outcome (0:2). As after this the team has given way to the national teams of Sweden and Bulgaria and prior to 5 rounds of the qualifiers completion the team has taken the 4th line.
