Coach: Marco van Basten
Star Player: Ruud van Nistelroy
FIFA Ranking: 10
The Dutch will have to be at their brilliant best to progress from the most difficult group -with France and Italy for company.
Van Basten's team are a fairly defensive lot when you recall what an attacking force he was back in 1988 -but with the likes of van Nistelroy, Huntelaar, van Persie and Robben in attack goals shouldnt be a problem!
Where they may struggle is in midfield/defense, with only Seedorf remaining of the recognised stars now that Staam, Davids and Cocu have retired.
Avoiding defeat against either France or Italy could see them needing to beat Romania to go through to the knockout stages of a tournament which would be much richer for a sea of orange!
