Following the release of their white away shirt earlier this year, Holland have unveiled their 2010 home kit design that will later be manufacturerd into a shirt for them to wear at the 2010 World Cup.
The Dutch have quite often flattered to deceive at major tournaments with numerous exits in the knock out stages after peaking too early. The only event that they have triumphed in was the 1988 European Championships whilst they lost in the final at the 1974 and 1978 World Cups. The team qualified with ease for the 2010 tournament after a qualification campaign which they ended with eight wins from eight. They have also been placed in a relatively comfortable group including Japan, Denmark and Cameroon. Should they qualify they are seeded to face Brazil in the quarter finals which would really test their credentials to the limit.
The new Holland home shirt design is predominately orange with a white pinstripe running down both sides. Other details include a black round neck collar and a small faint black patch on the edges of both sleeves. There is no manufacturer logo yet as this is only a design whilst the outline of the national badge is present in the top left.
