Netherlands 2010 World Cup squad.

The map shows the birthplaces of the 23-man squad representing the Netherlands in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. The Netherlands team made it all the way to the final, but fell just short, losing 1-0 to Spain in AET.

22 players on the Netherlands 2010 World Cup squad were born and raised in the home county of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Young defender Edson Braafheid, who plays professionally for Bayern Munich, was born in South America, in the former Dutch possession of Suriname. Braafheid emigrated to the Netherlands (ie, Holland) when he was a youngster and played in youth set-ups in the Amsterdam and Utrecht areas, before joining the FC Utrecht youth academy.

At the bottom of the map page are photos of projected starters and key subs (20 player photos). International appearances (aka caps) and international goals are listed and are up to date as of 11th July, 2010 (that is, the close of the 2010 World Cup).
