World Cup Appearance: 10th

Best Performance: Runners-up (1974, 1978, 2010)

Key Players: Robin van Persie, Arjen Robben, Wesley Sneijder

One of the five teams who qualified this week, Holland will look to make that slight improvement on 2010 and finally be crowned World Champions in 2014.

Having gone undefeated so far in their group stage, they wrapped up top spot with two games to spare and have only conceded four goals in the qualifying stage.

However, their defence is relatively inexperienced compared to some other European teams and they'll rely heavily upon their creative midfield to maintain a constant barrage of attacks so that they can't be undone.

Manchester United striker Robin van Persie has scored eight goals in qualifying so far and he'll look to prove himself on the world stage as one of the best.
