Holland fin­ished third in the 2014 World Cup, hav­ing been de­nied a place in their sec­ond suc­ces­sive fi­nal by a penalty shootout.


Euro 2016 will be the first time Holland have failed to qual­ify for a ma­jor tour­na­ment since the 2002 World Cup.


Holland were No 1 in the Fifa world rank­ings in Au­gust 2011 but they have now slipped to a lowly 15th.


When Danny Blind re­placed Guus Hid­dink last sum­mer, it was his first man­age­rial role since a spell at Ajax that lasted just 422 days.
