Battle of World Youth Arc Edit

The Strongest Opponent! Netherlands Youth

During Netherlands Youth's campaign in Europe, they won against every opponent in Germany, France and Italy. They then made another campaign in Asia, where they keep winning without taking a single goal.

The last opponent of the Asia campaign is Japan. The first two matches were easy victory, 6-0 and 7-0. For the third match, Japan had the addition of Tsubasa Ozora, who had just returned from Brazil. Japan eventually scored first in the match.

Later, Klismann managed to equalize right before the end of the first half. However, a violent clash between Hans Dolman and Leon Dick forced both of them to leave on stretchers. Without the two pivots in their defense, Netherlands lost 1-10.

Netherlands was in the same group with Argentina, South Korea and Ghana. With 3 wins, they end up first in the group. In the quarter-final, they won 3-1 against France. However, in the semi-final, they lost 0-1 to All Japan during extra time.
