The age-old enemies meet yet again tomorrow. Der Oranje take on Die Mannschaft in a do-or-die clash for both teams. A win means survival for the Dutch, while it can possibly put the Germans in the last eight.
The football history between these two is turbulent. The pinnacle match being the 1974 Wcup final. The rivalry has subsided, but during the decades when the Germans were known as West Germany fury boiled over. Case in point: Frank Rijkaard spitting in Rudy Voeller’s hair as both players are sent off during Italia ‘90.
