Netherlands are one of the favourites to win the European Championships this summer, and that comes as no surprise when looking at their talented squad. Van Marwijk still needs to trim his squad to will look to give some of his lesser known players a run out to see how they do under the pressure of knowing this game is make-or-break for them.
It will also be interesting to see whether he selects both Huntelaar and van Persie, as many have suggested that they cannot play together given that they have both led the line alone for their respective clubs this season, along with the fact that van Marwijk is very likely to stick with the 4-2-3-1 formation he used so successfully in qualifying.
Bulgaria came bottom of their qualifying group, some way behind the likes of Wales and Montenegro, so the Netherlands should win comfortably, and this could be a good game for them to showcase the young talent that will be on show.
