Wednesday 11 April 2012
With just months to go before the European championships, the Dutch national football team has fallen from second to fourth place in the latest Fifa world rankings.
Germany and Uruguay have overtaken Oranje while Spain remains in first place.
The revised ranking means all three of the Netherlands' opponents in the group round of the European tournament are in the top 10: Germany (2), Portugal (5) and Denmark (9).
