Introduction

Norway and the Netherlands only got a short rivalry going in the nineties, when meeting in successive qualifying campaigns for the World Cup 1994 and the European Championship 1996. Before, there had been occasional friendlies during the Dutch amateur era, but no competitive matches until the qualifying tournament for the 1974 World Cup, in which the Dutch chalked up their record win (joint with a 9-0 over Finland at the bronze medal match at the Olympics six decades earlier); that 0-9 also marked Norway's heaviest loss ever in a competitive match. Two decades later, "Drillo" Olsen's side surprised the Dutch in Oslo, but eventually the two countries qualified together, thereby blocking England from entering the USA World Cup.
