Orange had at that time were all friendly duels with England (march 23, in the Johan Cruijff Arena, Amsterdam) and Portugal (26 march at the Stade de geneve in Lancy).

The clashes with Slovakia and Italy relate both away games respectively Stadion Antona Malatinskeho in Trnava and in the the Allianz Stadium in Turin.

The netherlands and Slovakia have met twice before and both times it pulled Orange on the longest end, including in the eighth finals of the 2010 world cup in South Africa (2-1).

Slovakia and Italy are missing like the Netherlands next summer at the world CHAMPIONSHIPS in Russia. Slovakia was the worst number two and did not go through to the play-offs for a ticket to the global finals. Italy was in the play-offs surprisingly by Sweden off.
