Arjen Robben said that the Netherlands are “on a mission” in Brazil to win the FIFA World Cup for the first time in their history, and pay per head sportsbooks would like to see if they’ll make it all the way in the global showpiece.
Price per head services remember very well when four years ago, the Dutch were the beaten finalists three times as they lost to Spain in South Africa, and they were never able to clinch the most sought-after prize in football.
However, pay per head sportsbooks know that the Bayern Munich winger and his team-mates want to change that in Brazil, where Louis van Gaal’s players were able to win each of their four matches so far, making it to the quarter-finals.
Robben told FIFA.com: “I think we are on a mission together, and when you come to a World Cup it’s not to enjoy the weather and enjoy the beach in Rio.
“You’re here to win matches and to go as far as possible. I don’t think the expectations were that high before the tournament and, as a result, we can be very proud of where we are.”
And so far, Van Gaal’s side were able to show that spirit – and pay per head sportsbooks saw that so far such spirit has been on show, with the Dutch making it to the last eight – where they will take on Costa Rica – thanks to a very impressive comeback against Mexico.
Pay per head sportsbooks were at the edge of their seats when they saw the Netherlands turn the game around being down two-one after 87 minutes thanks to a very nice strike from Wesley Sneijder and a last-ditch penalty by substitute Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.
Robben gives a lot of the credit to coach Van Gaal, who at the end of the tournament will take over at Manchester United.
