The Netherlands will be aiming to rack up a few goals when they meet with the Republic of Ireland in Amsterdam on Saturday with qualification all but secured for the Dutch in what has been another horrible campaign for the Irish.
The Netherlands are sitting six points behind France and are unlikely to catch them in first after suffering a loss to them in the last international break. However, they are on 12 points alongside Greece in third but have a game extra to play over the Greeks and will be able to move themselves to three clear of them with a victory.
This comes off the back of the Netherlands beating Greee in the last outing, but it did take a penalty from Virgil van Dijk in the 90th minute to secure all three points that day.
As for Ireland, they lost their last outing to the Netherlands back in September, despite taking a lead through Adam Idah after four minutes from the penalty spot. Cody Gakpo would soon equalise with another penalty, while Wout Weghorst bagged a goal too.
Ireland did manage to get a rare win in their group last time out with a 4-0 battering over Gibraltar, although they were also beaten by Greece just before this. Ireland now sit just above Gibraltar in last place, and in reality, qualification to the next round has never really been on the cards for the nation.
