Netherlands: find 11 discrepancies

If You play with Netherlands national team in FIFA 2008, You'll find eleven differences at once. And even more will wait You if You analyze the whole squad. Here we have starting lines of Netherlands national team in FIFA'08 on the left (players on bench had never been heard too) and the official Netherlands squad for the upcoming EURO 2008 qualifiers against Romania and Slovenia on the right.


Goalkeepers: Edwin van der Sar (Manchester United FC), Maarten Stekelenburg (AFC Ajax), Henk Timmer (Feyenoord).

Defenders: Khalid Boulahrouz (Sevilla FC), Wilfred Bouma (Aston Villa FC), Urby Emanuelson (AFC Ajax), John Heitinga (AFC Ajax), Kew Jaliens (AZ Alkmaar), Joris Mathijsen (Hamburger SV), Mario Melchiot (Wigan Athletic FC), André Ooijer (Blackburn Rovers FC).

Midfielders: Giovanni van Bronckhorst (Feyenoord), Nigel de Jong (Hamburger SV), Hedwiges Maduro (AFC Ajax), Clarence Seedorf (AC Milan), Wesley Sneijder (Real Madrid CF), Rafael van der Vaart (Hamburger SV), Demy de Zeeuw (AZ Alkmaar).

Forwards: Ryan Babel (Liverpool FC), Klaas-Jan Huntelaar (AFC Ajax), Dirk Kuyt (Liverpool FC), Ruud van Nistelrooy (Real Madrid CF), Robin van Persie (Arsenal FC), Arjen Robben (Real Madrid CF).


It seems EA Sports and Netherlands football association don't love each other somehow. We can recall that one of greatest teams of the world was simply absent in FIFA'07 and FIFA'06. In recent game versions adequate squad of this team was only in FIFA World Cup 2006.
However, thank God or destiny, You can improve Your squad with international selections in FIFA 2008...

I know thats so bull, it makes me mad that there isnt even the Netherlands in 07 then 08 has no good players at all where is robben, van persie or nistelrooy some of the best strikers in the world how can u leave them out?

They didn't leave them out, FIFA couldn't obtain a license for the Netherlands so they put them in anyway and changed their names to get around it.

All the players are there, you just have to rename them ;-)

But, however, all (almost all) those best and real existing players are in the game because of the clubs.

Therefore we can design normal Netherlands team using TEAM MANAGEMENT - INTERNATIONAL SELECTIONS.

Do You Think In 2009 The Netherlands Team Might be Licensed? And do you think the Number of National Teams in the game will increast? I Surley hope so

cgedas said...

Hm, I'm not so optimistic. First of all, I guess, game providers prefer economic arguments. On the other hand, I'm not pessimist too and I hope...

All in all, if FIFA'09 indeed will be next gen, a lot of things should be different. We can only that and...not to play the game if we don't like it.

He is no one:) just search in the whole list of Netherland footballers and you'll find right ones.
