Third goalless draw in a row for Oranje

The Dutch national football team booked its third goalless draw in a row at Wednesday night’s friendly against Paraguay in Heerenveen.

Nevertheless, the result means the Dutch squad closes the 2009 international season unbeaten in 11 matches. It was also the fifth match in succession that the Netherlands did not concede a point.
All eyes are now on next year’s World Cup in South Africa, which Oranje has already qualified for. ‘That is what it is ultimately all about,’ coach Bert van Marwijk told news agency ANP.
