The Netherlands national football team has a unique claim to fame in the worldwide soccer community: of the teams that have never won a World Cup title, the Netherlands national football team (often referred to as the Dutch or simply as 'Holland') has made the most appearances in the World Cup finals, with three. Most recently, Holland was defeated by Spain in the final World Cup match of 2010. Near-victories in 1974 and 1978 saw the team at its peak of its powers, but players in the bright orange Netherlands football jersey will undoubtedly be working hard at this year's Brazil World Cup to end their 'always a bridesmaid, never a bride' streak. With that in mind, fans of the team will want to stock up on jerseys in both the team's primary home colors and their secondary away colors.

Luckily, you can find everything you need to support the Netherlands national football team right here at Soccer Box. Not only can you find the team's iconic, vibrant orange football jersey (and in a range of sizes, no less, to make sure that adults and children alike are bedecked in the distinctive Dutch colors), but you will also find the Holland 2014 World Cup away jersey.

Add soccer shorts, long orange socks and various other shirts and uniform essentials, and it's no secret why many football fanatics flock to Soccer Box when the time comes to suit up for the World Cup!

Netherlands Players Seek to Subvert History with a 2014 Victory

Undoubtedly, the main mission on the minds of most Dutch football players and fans of the Netherlands football jersey at the moment is a desire to smash the team's legacy of being a perennial runner-up. As this year's FIFA World Cup inches ever closer (the event will take place in June), the Netherlands national football team is training and playing with their eyes trained on the trophy. Assuredly, the team will have their work cut out for them. As the host team and as five-time World Cup champions, the Brazilian team has an advantage that will make them a fearsome opponent for every other team in the World Cup. Meanwhile, the defending champions from Spain who won the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa  cannot be counted out of contention.

Still, the hunger of the Netherlands cannot be discounted. Three finals appearances with no victories is the kind of streak that gets a fire burning under a sports team, and you can bet that the Netherlands team will be burning on all cylinders at this summer's World Cup where the Holland 2014 World Cup away jersey will be out in full force.

That particular fire has been burning ever since 1974, when the Netherlands defeated world-class teams from Brazil and Argentina to reach the final, held in Munich. They ultimately lost 2-1 to the team that was then West Germany (now known simply as the German national football team), but they were back in the finals just four years later when the event took place in Argentina. On that occasion, the Netherlands fell to the home team of Argentina in an extra-time 3-1 match.

Holland wouldn't see the World Cup finals again until 2010, when they lost 1-0 in another extra-time game, this time with Spain. Still, the runner-up prize money of $24 million undoubtedly helped the Netherlands team to do some retooling, and fans are excited to see their team go for the gold this time around, while sporting the Holland 2014 World Cup away jersey.
