Netherlands need at least a 7-0 victory on Tuesday to take second place and avoid missing out a second straight major tournament.

Advocaat said, ‘ It will be difficult to win 7-0.

”It is a football match and everything is possible. It will be a difficult game because Sweden have shown in recent months that they are a difficult team to beat but you never know.

”We always try to pick the strongest team and tomorrow that will once again be the case.

”We arrived back very late from Belarus and we had to adjust our training times.  I also agree with what Arjen Robben said that we must play with pride and for the supporters.

”I have always believed that the individual players in my squad have always shown the intention to play well and play attacking football too.”
