Holland 2-0 Sweden: A stunning Arjen Robben double is not enough for Dick Advocaat's side as their World Cup dream is ended in Amsterdam
  • Holland began their final World Cup qualifier needing to beat Sweden by at least seven goals in Amsterdam
  • Manchester United's Victor Lindelof kicked the ball into his own hand and gifted the Dutch a penalty
  • Arjen Robben stepped up to the plate and his deft chip down the middle was just enough to beat Robin Olsen
  • It was the Bayern Munich man who produced again, smashing home from outside the box before half-time
  • But it was not enough as the hosts fell five goals short of claiming second place in the Group A table







No miracle, then. Holland could not rise hup hup from the depths. The mission was impossible as the Dutch privately conceded it was after the previous round of games.
An attack led by Tottenham misfit Vincent Janssen could not plunder seven against Sweden, who serenaded their hosts with a lesser-heard “bright-side of life” chorus and move into next month’s play-offs.
They gave it a good go did Dick Advocaat’s team, especially in the first-half, blissfully free at last from the weight of expectation and with Arjen Robben producing a sublime reminder of his qualities.
But, on the night, the task was simply too great. This Oranje arrived pre-crushed, out of the World Cup before the party started and sparking a cascade of questions, not least who provides the techno in Russia.
Ultimately, they were ousted by losing twice to France (no disgrace there), once to Bulgaria and failing to punish the minnows from Belarus and Luxembourg.
Holland took four points Sweden, slide out on goal difference and no-one came to the Amsterdam Arena to vent their anger on the first Holland team to miss the World Cup finals since 2002.
Supporters cheered them over the line and applauded their efforts at the end.
Some came out of habit, head-to-toe in orange, as ever, and some came in tribute to Robben on his 96th and possibly final appearance for his country.
Robben has yet to confirm whether he intends to extend his international career but, at 33, the last of the Dutch masters still standing has earned a break from carrying this team.  

And his lap of honour after the match with his children pointed towards a farewell.
He set out to lead with courage, demanding the ball and running at the Swedes, winning free-kicks and taking them all.
Robben missed the game’s first chance, heading over, before converting a penalty awarded when Manchester United’s Victor Lindelhof somehow contrived to kick the ball into his own hand.
Robben’s dink from the spot was not a clean connection but it found a way past goalkeeper Robin Olsen.
No-one came in expectation of a famous goal-rush but they saw their team having a go. “Roar like a lion, fight like a beast,” said one banner.
The damage was already done and the irony of an early goal by Luxembourg against Bulgaria did not escape those present.
Sweden’s eight goals against Luxembourg on Saturday put them in control of the runners-up spot in Group A.
They knew anything better than a seven-goal defeat would do and the healthy margin for error coupled with Holland’s frenzied mood of desperation seemed briefly to confound Jan Andersson’s team.

Portugal win to earn World Cup berth over Switzerland; France also qualify



Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal confirmed their spot at the 2018 World Cup by beating Switzerland 2-0 in their final UEFA qualifier on Tuesday.

Anything less than a victory would have seen Portugal forced to go through a two-legged playoff next month, but instead they top Group B on goal difference above the Swiss, who will drop into the playoffs despite winning all nine of their previous qualifiers.

Portugal took the lead in the 41st minute when Eliseu curled a dangerous cross into the box intended for Joao Mario, who collided with Switzerland goalkeeper Yann Sommer and Johan Djourou. The ball came off the defender and crossed the line for an own goal.

And in the 57th minute Portugal cemented their place in Russia when Bernardo Silva sent a pass through the six-yard box that Andre Silva controlled before putting the ball into the net.

After scoring 15 times in qualifying to this point, Ronaldo had a quiet game on Tuesday -- even being denied by Sommer one-on-one in the second half -- and finished one goal behind Poland's Robert Lewandowski for the most in the European campaign.

France also eased into the World Cup finals by securing top spot in Group A with a 2-1 win at home to Belarus.

France took the lead in the 27th minute when Blaise Matuidi fed Antoine Griezmann through on goal, and the forward made no mistake in slotting home. The second came six minutes later when Griezmann turned provider, slipping in Olivier Giroud, who got his finish away before two defenders could close in.

Belarus pulled a goal back a minute before the break when Anton Saroka sidefooted home, but there was to be no equalizer.

Sweden secured second place and a playoff spot despite losing 2-0 to Netherlands, who needed to win by seven goals to climb above their visitors into second place in Group A.

After finishing third at the 2014 World Cup, the Dutch missed out on a second straight major tournament after also failing to qualify for Euro 2016.

Netherlands came out on the front foot and took the lead in the 16th minute after Victor Lindelof was penalised for handling the ball in the box. Arjen Robben took the resulting spot kick and almost messed up the Panenka finish as the ball dribbled over the line past the outstretched boot of goalkeeper Robin Olsen.

Robben then doubled the advantage five minutes from the break with a spectacular first-time effort from the edge of the box, but Sweden held firm in the second half to move on.

Greece got the win they needed over minnows Gibraltar, 4-0, to secure a playoff spot by finishing second in Group H.

Vasilios Torosidis headed Zeca's cross out of goalkeeper Deren Ibrahim's reach in the 32nd minute, before Kostas Mitroglou scored twice in a three-minute span after the hour mark to seal the victory, and Giannis Gianniotas added a fourth.

The result ensured Slovakia will miss out on the UEFA playoffs as the worst runner-up despite finishing in second place in Group F. The Slovaks needed Gibraltar to earn their first-ever World Cup qualifying point to advance, but it was not to be.

The draw for the November playoffs will take place next Tuesday in Zurich. The two-legged ties will feature four seeded teams based on FIFA rankings -- Switzerland, Italy, Croatia and Denmark -- against the unseeded Sweden, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland and Greece.

Among games with lesser stakes on Tuesday, Eden Hazard scored twice as already-qualified Belgium completed their unbeaten Group H campaign with a 4-0 win at home over Cyprus.

Youri Tielemans dispossessed a Cypriot defender in his own half and Hazard ran onto the loose ball before placing his shot in the corner from 20 yards in the 12th minute.

Eden's brother Thorgan Hazard slotted home a rebound seven minutes after half-time to double the lead, before the Chelsea star added his second and Belgium's third from the penalty spot.

Romelu Lukaku ran onto a ball over the top and coolly scored to get in on the action in the 78th minute.

Bosnia and Herzegovina had no hope of reaching the playoffs entering the day and finished behind Greece despite a 2-1 win away to Estonia.

Izet Hajrovic put the visitors ahead following a defensive miscue in the first half before Ilja Antonov equalized for Estonia in the 75th minute. But Hajrovic stepped up again to net the winner six minutes from time.

Daniel Bode scored in the 81st minute to help Hungary finish third behind Portugal and Switzerland in Group B with a 1-0 home win over Faroe Islands.

Latvia avoided finishing bottom of Group B by winning 4-0 at home over Andorra with a brace each from Davis Ikaunieks and Valerijs Sabala.

The final game in Group A saw Luxembourg finish fifth by claiming a 1-1 draw at home to Bulgaria. Olivier Thill put Luxembourg in front after only three minutes before Ivaylo Chochev equalised midway through the second half.

連續缺席兩大賽決賽周
荷蘭足球再陷冰河期



隨著荷蘭肯定未能取得2018年俄羅斯世界盃決賽周入場券,橙衫兵團已經接連缺席了2016年的歐洲國家盃,以及明年世界盃兩項大賽的決賽周,算是陷入了隊史上第三次的冰河期。

荷蘭雖然曾經三次在世界盃屈居亞軍,但這支歐洲球隊並非一直以來都是傳統的足球強國,過往未能出席世界盃決賽周的情況時有發生。事實上,荷蘭在1958、1962、1966和1970都有出戰世界盃外圍賽,但四次都未能出線。同時間,荷蘭亦曾參加1964、1968和1972的歐洲國家盃外圍賽,但三次同告鎩羽而歸,是為荷蘭足壇史上第一個冰河期。然後,在1974和1978兩屆世界盃,全能足球大放異彩,惜荷蘭亦只能連續兩屆屈居亞軍。在歐洲國家盃方面,荷蘭在1976年也得到不俗的第3名。
在接下來的1982和1986世界盃,荷蘭都未能踢入決賽周,另外在1980和1984歐洲國家盃,亦分別以在分組賽出局,以及未能躋身決賽周作結,是為荷蘭足壇史上第二個冰河期。1988年,荷蘭憑三劍俠古列特、尹巴士頓和列卡特等球星押陣,一舉贏得歐洲國家盃冠軍,之後六屆歐國盃亦三次躋身4強,另外兩次踢入8強。在世界盃方面,荷蘭在1990、1994和1998都踢入決賽周,其中在1998年得第4名,但四年後的日韓世界盃則未能踢入決賽周。荷蘭之後在2006、2010及2014世界盃都踢入淘汰賽階段,當中在2010年再獲亞軍、四年後則得第3名,始終與冠軍無緣。

如今荷蘭再接連缺席2016歐國盃及2018世盃決賽周,是隊史上第三次連續缺席兩項大型賽事的決賽周,稱其陷入隊史上第三次的冰河期,絕不為過。
