Holland team may play South American clubs next summer
The Dutch national football team may be playing against a number of South American clubs next summer. The Dutch football association confirmed that the Holland team will play a friendly match against Brazil on 4 June 2011. Then the KNVB hopes the Dutch will play Uruguay on 7 June, but the organisation of this match is not complete.
In the South African World Cup last summer, the Netherlands beat Uruguay in the semi-finals 3-2. The Dutch also knocked Brazil out of the competition with 2-1 in the quarter finals.
Holland coach Bert van Marwijk hopes his team will see some action next summer, as no qualifying matches are sceduled between March and September for the 2012 European Championships.
