Default Dutch overachievers

The Dutch have been overachieving for many decades in football. A country much smaller than England, Italy, Germany, Spain, or France, have been producing many of the world's greatest footballers, coaches, and tactics, and have consistently given us joy and excitement at tournaments and at the various top level clubs their players have led to victory.

Thank you Netherlands for awesome football. You can be proud of your footballing pedigree.

So many chokers produced over the generations, Dutch are huge overachievers when it comes to producing world class choking footballers
