Holland deafeat Croatia – Shows threat to Scotland

Last night Holland showed just how much of a threat they are to Scotland’s World Cup 2010 ambitions. While the Scotland squad rested, the four other Group 9 teams took part in friendlies. And Holland showed themselves to be a very capable team, defeating the mighty Croatia 3-0.

The importance of this result is considerable. Only Group winners progress to the World Cup finals. While Norway, Iceland and Macedonia produced results of not great worry to Scotland, Holland’s trancing of Croatia suggests they are a formidable team, one that Scotland will need to work hard to defeat. It looks like Craig Burley’s squad have their work seriously cut out for them.

 I suggest looking on the Dutch like the French – formidable, but beatable.
