They were thrashed in finals when Andres Iniesta pu the ball inside the net. This edition they will look forward to beat the Spain in Group stage and lead the table to clash with Brazil in their home soil.

Australia were on the canvas early in their meeting with Chile later the same night, but their plucky fightback from two goals down only went so far and they slipped to a 3-1 defeat that means they face the daunting task of having to get something from this game in the Estadio Beira-Rio,
Following their goals against Spain, both Robben and van Persie became the first Netherlands players to score in three different World Cup tournaments (2006, 2010, 2014).
Australia have won just two of their previous 11 World Cup matches (L6 D3)
Robin van Persie has scored 10 goals in his last nine appearances for Netherlands.
The Dutch are unbeaten in their last 11 World Cup group stage matches, winning eight and drawing three.
Van Gaal is in the happy position of having no injuries in his squad to contend with, so he may opt to stick with the side that started last Friday’s demolition job.
Any lingering question marks over the fitness of Robin van Persie following his troubles for Manchester United late last season disappeared against Spain, with the diving header for the first of his two goals providing one of the best moments of the tournament so far.
Australia may have never lost in three friendly meetings with the Dutch, but this will be a very different test for Ange Postecoglou’s side.
He will be without the services of Brisbane Roar defender Ivan Franjic, who is out of the tournament with due to a torn hamstring and will probably be replaced by Ryan McGowan.
The 24-year-old has played for Hearts, Ayr United and Partick Thistle in Scotland, and now plies his trade with Shandong Luneng Taishan in China, but will find van Persie and Arjen Robben a tough proposition if selected.
Tim Cahill proved he is still a thorn in the side for the world’s defenders when he scored in his third World Cup finals in the defeat by Chile, but the veteran and his team-mates will have to be at their very best to glean something from this match.
Paul Merson’s prediction
For the first 20 minutes Chile were good against Australia but then I thought the Aussies gave a good account of themselves to be fair. At 1-0 down, if you’ve have said the Netherlands were going to win 5-1 against Spain, I’d have said ‘they’ll be lucky to score a goal’. They were that bad in the first 45 minutes. I expect them to win this game at a canter.
Paul predicts: 0-3
