The Netherlands world cup team returned home to a hero’s welcome on a boat parade. 600,000 Oranje fans lined the canals of Amsterdam and welcomed the second-place Champions as the Winners Holland truly are.
Clearly Holland is the best team to have never won the World Cup. Do some research on 1974 , 1978 and 2010. Unbelievably, heart breaking.
The Netherlands players first went to a private reception with the Dutch PM and Queen Beatrix in The Hague. There the coach [manager] Bert van Marwijk and team captain Giovanni van Bronckhorst were officially knighted.
Then they were helicoptered to Amsterdam where two thirds of a million Dutch people lined the canals to celebrate the Holland national team’s boat parade.
In loving memory – William Becks – Arnhem, Holland. Thanks for your loving Oranje fans. Thanks team for your world-class play. Thanks for your support.
Hold your head high, Winners. Be Strong. Walk in Confidence.
