AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, Oct 11 – The Netherlands failed to reach the 2018 World Cup finals as they could only beat Sweden 2-0 on Tuesday when they needed an unlikely 7-0 victory.

Elimination is fresh humiliation for the nation that reached the 2010 World Cup final and the semi-finals four years later, after they also missed out on Euro 2016 qualification.
