The 2022 FIFA World Cup will kick off in Qatar for the first time in the competition’s history next month. 32 of the best nations in world football will fight it out among themselves to see who gets a chance to lift the famous trophy at the Lusail Iconic Stadium where the final will take place on December 18.

The Netherlands will be one of those countries looking to perform well in the prestigious FIFA tournament as they have currently got a strong squad capable of putting up a real fight in the Middle East later this year.

Before the 2022 FIFA World Cup begins, let’s see how well the Netherlands has performed in past World Cup tournaments.

When Did The Netherlands First Win The World Cup?

The Netherlands is yet to win a World Cup but has got a rich history in the competition. They have qualified for ten World Cup tournaments so far with their best results coming in 1974, 1978, and 2010 editions of the prestigious competition.

Louis van Gaal will now focus on going one step further by winning the whole thing when it gets underway on November 20.

How Many Times Has The Netherlands won the World Cup?

As mentioned earlier, the Netherlands has still not tasted success in World Cup football. However, with three runners-up finishes under their name, they will be desperate to do well and go on a long cup run in Qatar over the next two months.

A lot will depend on how well their star players perform in the Middle East. However, there is no denying that the European nation has got a strong squad and is more than capable of making it to the final of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Schedule of The Netherlands For Qatar 2022

The Netherlands will kick off their World Cup campaign against Senegal at the Al-Thumama Stadium on November 21 before clashing heads with Ecuador at the Khalifa International Stadium just four days later. The Dutch players will play their final group game versus Qatar at the same venue on November 29.

Louis van Gaal will be reliant on some of his big-name players like Virgil Van Dijk, Memphis Depay, and Frenkie de Jong to give a good account of themselves in this tournament.
