The Netherlands national football team hold the unwanted record for the amount of worlds cups entered without winning the tournament. They have lost in the final three times, to West Germany, Argentina and Spain.
The team dates back to 1905 when they played their first international fixture against Belgium. The Netherlands national football team’s biggest win came as recently as 2011 however. They beat minnows San Marino 11-0.
Since the 1970’s the side has been know for the Johan Cruyff inspired ‘Total Football’. It turned around a rather barren period for the team, and begun their time as a football powerhouse.
