The reigning champs felt they had a chance in 1992. The World Cup 1990 was a disaster. Rinus Michels had come in to bring the team to new heights.
The first game was against Scotland. A difficult first game.
Our second game was against the GOS. I have NO idea what that stands for… Something soviet…Van Basten does score a pure goal here which is disallowed for off side.
So, Holland needed to win the third game vs Germany. Great! Love those games. We had a certain Dennis Bergkamp…Van Basten hits the post by the way. Could have had two goals this tournament.
Can’t find the highlights of Holland-Denmark, the semis, but that’s ok… So here’s another look at it.
