Well-Suited: The Dutch Arrive In Amsterdam

Robin Van Persie, put that camera down and make nice for the fangirls, please. Image via Daylife/Getty Images.

The Netherlands NT have arrived back at home and promptly began partying like it was 1999 on a celebratory canal cruise. Over 500,000 fans turned out in Amsterdam to support the team and their second place spot at the biggest footy competition in the world.

Much like the Spanish, it would seem the booze of choice post-game for ‘ballers that need to par-tay is…  beer. Cheers, Johnny!

    I just love how despite losing the finals, the fans still appreciate the team going to the final stage against the hardest opponent in the world cup. Bravo Holland. I hope we can go one step further in the euros and get our hands on the prize. :) 1 love Holland

    Never thought I would ever be able to say that: but they actually do look good in those suites! Even Robben, who I do not rate goodlooking at any type, but yet really rate him as a player!
    Van Bommel. YUMMY!

  6. Sahar says:

    I love me some rvp. Why did he have to ruin the picture by hiding his gorgeous face. Oh and thanks for the video. Seeing rvp being so awkward dancing was so cute. I can't get enough of him

  7. OMG!! Your comments are so hilarious girls. Can’t stop laughing since the XABI’s short tent..LOL..

  8. Steph says:

    I really like that they wore their silver medals. There’s absolutely no shame in their great accomplishments this World Cup.

  17. DebC says:

    love how big that mug of beer was, surely better tasting than the budweiser the Spainish was drinkin.

  18. MEER. says:

    Ahw, they look so gorgeous! Nice suits, shoes… Not so much. Ah, well.

    The celebrations were awesome. Didn’t have time to go to Amsterdam myself, but we did get to watch everything live on Dutch telly. Nice report from BBC too, btw. Too bad the video does not include any of the scenes from Museum Square. The square was colored orange because of all the fans. It was amazing. The boys we’re jumping and partying, doing goofy things and being pleasantly drunk, heee!

    I’m so very proud of my country, my boys. This team is still young, they can go big. So I’m confident we will see a lot more of them in the future. Thank goodness.

    Van Bommel ruins this pic for me. He's so dirty. I like how they have on their medals though unlike their classless coach who took his off right away.

    • Johanna says:

      The coach demonstrated he's a sore loser by taking off the medal. It's something that really bothered me but I'm glad the guys are having fun in their country. They look extremely handsome!

      • MEER. says:

        HE was just really disappointed. I get that. At that time, as he has commented himself, he was thinking in winning/losing a game, not in how far they made it. So yeah, when you lose, you feel like crap. Later on he realized what he and the team accompished.

    • Eebza says:

      dirty lol… i find van bommel sexy.

  20. klyn312 says:

    yikes, what’s with those shoes?

  21. Tash says:

    who’s the cutie between robin v.p and robben?

  22. Ella says:

    I'm glad they had a great homecoming, and they're working those suits!

  23. Lucy says:

    Aww~ They look so nice in their suits<3

  24. burnedpaper says:

    I would so party with the dutch any day of the week

  25. iida says:

    Okay WHAT exactly is going on in RvP's trousers? Seriously. It's a HUMUNGOUS bulge. On BOTH SIDES. OH MY GOD I CAN'T EVEN-

    • klyn312 says:

      Bionic boy parts.

      • iida says:

        Bionic boy parts that have rendered me speechless. I blame Kickette for the condition I'm in right now. I never used to check out the groin areas of footballers' before I began following this blog.

        • MEER. says:

          I’m guessing phone, camera etc.

          • LoveFootballLoveFoot says:

            Ummm no! He's holding what appears to be that one phone that looks more like a camera because it apparently is better camera than cell phone… soooo what else could it be? I too noticed it right away now that my eyes seem to go there first since I became a fan of this site. Sometimes I just click without reading the headlines because of it. There's some mexican and english soccer players here in my town for a friendly game tomorrow. I know they'll party out tomorrow night so I'm going to convince my cousins to go with me to spot some. Anyone fans of Portsmouth??? They are here!!!

    • Innocenza says:

      Troisième jambe… AND a weapon!

      • iida says:

        Oh my lord, this made me laugh so much.

        I can absolutely imagine RvP with a fancy, Bond-esque gun in his pocket. I mean, the suit is very 007, no?

        It's just a shame the bulge looks more like a wallet & phone combo than a sophisticated spy thing. But one can always ignore blatant evidence.

    • M says:

      His PHONE! Hahaha they all had those HD flip cam's to film the trip and stuff :) He is holding that HD flip cam at the picture
