Dutch national team to final round play-offs
The Dutch national team had to give everything on Tuesday October 9 2018 to get a step closer to the last World Cup ticket. The Dutch team lost 2-1 from Norway in Oslo, which caused them to play play-offs. Together with their neighbours Belgium, Switzerland and Denmark they play a mini tournament to determine which team will receive the last World Cup ticket.
The Dutch national team started very strong with a 2-0 victory at home against Denmark. They won the return as well and reached the final of the playoffs. Belgium and Switzerland played against each other, which ended up in two draws. The goals scored in the away game turned out Switzerland will play the finals.
The finals will be played between the Netherlands and Switzerland. In November there will be a winner, which will go to the World Cup in 2019.
