During the UEFA Euro 2012 tournament, the Netherlands national football team had a disappointing performance. Despite being considered as one of the tournament favorites due to their strong squad and previous successes, they had a very poor showing.

In the group stage, the Netherlands were placed in Group B alongside Denmark, Germany, and Portugal. They lost all three of their matches in the group stage:

  1. Netherlands 0-1 Denmark
  2. Netherlands 1-2 Germany
  3. Netherlands 1-2 Portugal

As a result, they finished at the bottom of their group with zero points, failing to advance to the knockout stage of the tournament. This unexpected early exit was a significant disappointment as 2 years before they were at the World Cup Final.

. Some of the notable key players for the Netherlands during Euro 2012 included:

  1. Robin van Persie: The striker was in excellent form leading up to the tournament, having had a prolific season with Arsenal in the English Premier League. He was expected to provide goals and leadership for the Dutch team.

  2. Wesley Sneijder: Sneijder, an attacking midfielder known for his vision, passing, and ability to score goals, was a key creative force for the Netherlands. He played a crucial role in their run to the 2010 FIFA World Cup final and was expected to provide similar impact in Euro 2012.

  3. Arjen Robben: The dynamic winger, known for his pace, dribbling skills, and ability to cut inside and score goals, was another key player for the Dutch team. Robben's presence on the wing provided a significant attacking threat for the Netherlands.

  4. Rafael van der Vaart: A versatile midfielder known for his technical ability and creativity, van der Vaart was expected to play a crucial role in the Dutch midfield, providing support to the attacking players and contributing to build-up play.

  5. Nigel de Jong: A defensive midfielder known for his tough tackling and ability to break up opposition attacks, de Jong provided stability and protection to the Dutch defense. His presence was crucial in providing a balance between attack and defense for the Netherlands.

  6. John Heitinga (Center-back): Heitinga was an experienced defender who provided leadership and solidity to the Dutch backline. His defensive prowess and ability to organize the defense were valuable assets for the team.

  7. Dirk Kuyt (Forward/Winger): Kuyt was known for his work rate, versatility, and ability to contribute both defensively and offensively. Whether playing as a forward or a winger, his tireless running and commitment were appreciated by the Dutch team.

  8. Klaas-Jan Huntelaar (Striker): Huntelaar was a lethal goal-scorer known for his positioning, heading ability, and clinical finishing. While he didn't always start matches due to competition with Robin van Persie, he was a valuable option off the bench to provide goals when needed.

  9. Ibrahim Afellay (Midfielder/Winger): Afellay was a creative midfielder who could also operate as a winger. His dribbling skills and ability to provide incisive passes were assets for the Dutch team's attacking play.
