Last year for the Netherlands was almost without action. Unfortunately, they were not promoted to the main World Cup Tournament and were left at the 3rd position in the qualification Group stage. This team has perspective players, and a few years in a row everyone is talking that they should start playing well with this great grown generation. However, Holland is not showing results that everyone expecting, although, they took first place in UEFA Nations League in League A and will fight for becoming champions of this tournament. In total, now they are playing very confident football, as they lost only 2 in two last years against France and England. Moreover, they impressively won against teams like Germany, France, and Portugal. This team including players from different highest Europe League like Premier League, LaLiga, Ligue 1 and others. As a result, they should show everything they got in the first match.

Belarus does not have a strong national squad, however, they are trying to do their best, and sometimes it works. The national squad of Belarus has lost only once since the 2017 year against Finland. In addition, they took 1st place in UEFA Nations League in League D. As a result, they were promoted to League C and stronger competitors. In this group, they won 4 and have drawn 2 matches with 10 scored goals and without conceding. Of course, Belarus will face troubles with such teams as Germany and Holland, but even so, there are teams in the group that can be defeated. The main thing is to play strong team football and everything can be very good even for weak teams, as well as the team will be helped by the well-known and best player Aleksandr Hleb, who has played in the Arsenal for a long time.
