Chronological List of Matches

Note that a number of unofficial matches (7 against Belgium, which are also unofficial for Belgium, 1 against Scotland, which is official for Scotland, 1 against both the Dutch East Indies and South Africa, which were official for the opponents at the time but not anymore) is listed in italics.

Also note that the matches against the amateur teams of Czechoslovakia (1), England (10) and Ireland (2) are not official for the opponents. The same applies for the 2 matches against Great Britain (essentially the England Amateur team) at both London Olympics.

Notes:

[!] match official for opponents but not for the Netherlands; at the 
    match, both national anthems were played and all present in the 
    stadium were under the impression it was an official match, but
    months later, the NVB (Dutch FA) declared it was not official, a 
    decision taken by NVB president ir. Kips, who was strictly opposed
    against playing professionals (as the Scots of course were)
[*] match not official for opponents
[-] match not official for either team

[1] this match was part of a post-World Cup tour of the Dutch East 
    Indies in the Netherlands; it was announced as an official match 
    in the invitations for the players (including that for Jan Linssen,
    the only player of the Netherlands playing this match who would not
    win an official cap) but apparently was never included in the 
    official Dutch records; it was an official match for the NIVU
    (Nederlandsch-Indische Voetbal Unie) but not recognised as such by 
    the current federation PSSI (Persatuan Sepakbola Seluruh Indonesia)
[2] this match involved the unofficial "Bondselftal" on the Dutch
    side but was recognised as official at the time by the South African
    federation; it was scrapped from the South African records after 1992
[a] Netherlands lost 7-8 on penalties (no extra time played)
[b] match was a European Champ. Qual. but annulled as such by UEFA
    because of serious crowd trouble and replayed on 9-12-1987; the
    Dutch FA recognises caps and goals for the match on 28-10-1987
[c] aet, Netherlands lost 4-5 on penalties
[d] aet, Netherlands lost 4-5 on penalties
[e] aet, Netherlands lost 2-4 on penalties
[f] aet, Netherlands lost 1-3 on penalties
[g] aet, Netherlands won 5-4 on penalties
[h] Netherlands lost 3-4 on penalties (no extra time played)
[i] friendly cancelled due to riots in England

NB: aet = after extra time

NB: at neutral venues, the Netherlands outscore their opponents by almost
    two goals to one; this average is partially boosted by the fact that 
    some qualifying matches against weak opponents (Andorra, Malta and
    San Marino) were played at such venues (Barcelona, Aachen, Bologna).

[*] match not official for opponents

  • The first draw in a match involving the Dutch national team was the 5-5 draw against Germany in the 28th official international match. Three of the previous 27 matches had also been drawn after 90 minutes, including the very first one, but all these matches had been decided after extra time as they were played for the Coupe Vanden Abeele. Germany also were the opponents in the first goalless draw of the Dutch national team, in the 64th official international match.
  • The Netherlands have (to date) never lost a match by more than a single goal after 90 minutes at a World Cup final tournament (two matches, in 1938 against Czechoslovakia (0-3) and in 1978 against Argentina (1-3), were lost by a larger margin, but both had been drawn after 90 minutes and were decided in extra time).
    In European Championship final tournaments, the Netherlands suffered three losses by more than a single goal, but two of those, in 1976 against Czechoslovakia (1-3) and in 2008 against Russia (1-3), also came in extra time, the matches having been drawn after 90 minutes, while the third, in 1996 against England (1-4), was a group match in which the only Dutch goal scored secured qualification for the quarterfinals.
  • If the above 1-4 drubbing against England was the most 'victorious' heavy loss of the Dutch national team, its most 'victorious' loss undoubtedly was the 2-3 defeat by Scotland at the 1978 World Cup; Scotland had needed a 3-goal win to qualify for the second group stage instead of the Netherlands, and for 4 minutes (after a truly wonderful goal by Archie Gemmill to make it 1-3) had actually threatened to achieve that. Ironically, Scotland were also the victims of the Dutch 1-4 loss to England in 1996.
  • In contrast, the most devastating 'win' was the 2-1 victory over Belgium in the second leg of the playoff for qualification for the 1986 World Cup. As Belgium had won the home match 1-0, their late away goal secured Dutch elimination. Belgium would go on to reach the semifinals in Mexico. The Rode Duivels had also been the Dutch opponents in Oranje's most 'victorious' draw, the 0-0 at home in November 1973 which secured qualification for the 1974 World Cup (also thanks to the refereeing team disallowing a late Belgian goal on a controversial marginal off-side decision). Belgium were eliminated on goal difference in spite of not having conceded a single goal in any of their six qualifying matches.
  • The Netherlands have (to date) never been eliminated in a group stage of a final tournament of the World Cup. None of Argentina, Brazil, England, France, Germany, Italy, Spain or Uruguay can claim this (admittedly, for Germany this refers to the second group stage in 1978).
  • Between 1974 and 1994, the Netherlands were eliminated at all final tournaments in which they participated (World Cup and European Championship) by the eventual winners, the only exception being the 1988 European Championship, which the Netherlands won. During this period, the Netherlands failed to qualify for three final tournaments in succession (the 1982 and 1986 World Cups and the 1984 European Championship); in both World Cups the team eliminating the Netherlands (France and Belgium respectively) reached the semifinals while the team denying them the 1984 European Championship (Spain, unless one prefers to blame Malta for conceding 9 goals in the second half of their final qualifying match) reached the final.
  • The Netherlands established a series of 25 matches without defeat, including a 10-match winning series, between September 2008 and July 2010. The series included 14 matches for the 2010 World Cup (qualifying and final tournament), which the Netherlands all won (none after extra time). Unfortunately all three series were ended late in the second half of extra time of the 2010 World Cup final.
