The Dutch team meets Monday night with Portugal an absolute angstgegner. Orange already performs years dramatically against the South-European country, and have been waiting for 27 years to a victory.
The last victory at the Portugal dates back to 16 October 1991, when Orange – with Ronald Koeman in the base – thanks to a goal from Richard Witschge to the EK-kwalificatieduel in Rotterdam with a 1-0 win. That is also the only win ever in the Netherlands on the Portuguese.
Of the twelve confrontations were seven lost and four ended in a tie. Against no country performed Orange as bad as it was against Portugal.
Currently has Orange already ten games in a row not won by the Portuguese, and if that Monday night in Geneva, switzerland, again fails, this means that a negative record. Only against West Germany (1957 to 1964) remained Orange ever ten matches without a win. Eleven games in a row not win against a country was never.
