  • The Netherlands national football team represents the Netherlands in international association football. It is controlled by the Royal Netherlands Football Association, the governing body for football in the Netherlands. The team is colloquially referred to as Het Nederlands Elftal and Oranje, after the House of Orange-Nassau. Like the country itself, the team is sometimes referred to as Holland. The official code to "Netherlands" is "NED". The Dutch hold the record for playing the most World Cup finals without ever winning the tournament. They finished second in the 1974, 1978 and 2010 World Cups, losing to West Germany, Argentina and Spain respectively. They won the UEFA European Championship in 1988. Louis van Gaal fulfilled his contract with the Netherlands, having led them to third place at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, and was succeeded by Guus Hiddink, who had previously managed the team during the late 1990s, and will be in charge for the Netherlands' UEFA Euro 2016 campaign. Assistant coach Danny Blind will be his successor.
