Marco van Basten admits Holland have acquired a nasty habit of being drawn in the "group of death" in major tournaments since he became coach.

Sunday´s Euro 2008 draw was not kind on the Dutch with the team placed alongside World Cup finalists Italy and France as well as Romania.

Van Basten said: "We have to play against the two finalists of the last World Cup. They are big countries with a lot of experience."
