International Friendly: England vs HollandPublished March 29, 2016 by Sol FH
Holland have little to play for after missing out on qualifying for Euro Championships this summer, but will they continue to dominate England? Find out at 20:00 GMT.
One of the biggest international friendly soccer matches of the night gets underway at Wembley Stadium, as the Three Lions host the Netherlands. Big news for England fans, as Daniel Sturridge set to make his return to the national team after his long recovery. Sturridge will undoubtedly be praised, as England needs all the help it can get. Head Coach Roy Hodgson will be trying a few new roster ideas for the match ahead of the Euro tournament.
Holland will be trying to re-group after their recent terrible form kept them from qualifying for the Euro, and losing a friendly over the weekend at home to France. The Netherlands have fared extremely well against England over the last six matches, with four wins and two draws. They will be a bit short-handed tonight however, as Wesley Sneijder, Jasper Cillessen and Davy Klaassen are all ruled out due to injuries.
The Three Lions are on a winning tear having lost just two games of their last twenty at the new Wembley after Hodgson took charge. Having won nine matches at home in a row, which is their longest winning streak since a set of matches between 2008 and 2010, during Beckham's heyday.
The Netherlands have won three of their last four away matches, but their inconsistent year saw them lose three straight prior to that. Even though it is just a friendly, there is a big rivalry between the two teams and this match will be exciting, and an excellent opportunity to see what England looks like ahead of the Euro.
