Northern Ireland vs Netherlands

Netherlands together with Germany leads the Group C having by 15 points after 6 played matches. Northern Ireland collected 12 points, however, they will face the most tougher national team period. Hosts will face Netherlands on 16th and then Germany on 19th of November. Both games are decisive for them, so teams should hold together and fight for every ball every second. Previously in Nations League Norn Iron lost absolutely all games and were relegated to the League C. They lost all 4 games against Austria and Bosnia & Herzegovina. Participation in the Nations League showed at what level the team is now, and that playing in the upper class is too early.

Northern Ireland vs Netherlands Key players

Most of the Green and White Army players are from English and Scotland Premier and Championship Leagues. Most known and experienced players in top football are Steven Davis, which is captain of hosts, Kyle Lafferty, who shows very strong football in attack and Jonny Evans ex-main Manchester United players. In general, they have very strong leaders in every line.

Netherlands can show much more high-class players as they have grown a super talented squad so far. Extra strong defence with Virgil van Dijk and Matthijs de Light in the centre. Middle of the pitch with Wijnaldum Strootman and de Jong. And  Ryan Babel, together with Depay and Promes in attack will obviously create lots of troubles for their next opponents.
