Holland goes into this game knowing that they have already qualified for the 2010 World Cup final. They have been outstanding in their World Cup campaign and now they have cemented that they are one of the favorites for the World Cup 2009. Holland has one of the best squads in the world and a World Cup without them would be shame. On the other hand, Norway is far from a qualifying to South Africa.
All hopes of qualifying to South Africa in group nine was crushed when Holland took the only automatic spot available. Holland is currently first in the group with 18 points and a goal difference at +12. They have won six out of six games. Their last game ended with a 2-1 victory over Iceland which made Holland the third team to qualify for the World Cup. As they host Norway on Wednesday, Coach Bert van Marwijk there is a possibility that the squad will be roated agains Norway. Having said this, he will almost certainly keep Nigel De Jong and Mark Van Bommel in the starting line up.
Norway is the exact opposite of Holland. They are currently at the foot of the table with 3 points playing 4 games. They have drawn 3 games and lost one. Their chances of qualifying for the World cup are quite very slim and it might not be even possible. Temporary Coach Egil Olsen is in charge of Norway because Age Haride resigned early in the year. His comeback game was against Germany where Norway won with 1-0. There will be much firepower with John Carrew and Erik Nevland up front. Norway will do their best to get a result from the Amsterdam Arena.
Holland is by far the best team in the group and Norway is on the verge of getting the confidence back on their squad. This match might not mean anything for Holland but the pride is at stake. There will be enough entertain on the night and Holland is strong enough to send Norway home with a defeat, so look out for mybet as they are offering 1.40 for an home win.
