After their disastrous failure to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, the Netherlands is behind their quest to qualify for the 2020 European Championships as they host Belarus.

The prospects for Netherlands football, a team that came with an extra-time goal of winning the World Cup in 2010, looked bleak just one year ago. At that time, the Oranje had failed to even qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, as The Evening Standard reported, after two years earlier failing to qualify for the 2016 European Championships. But then the team took a sudden upward turn, surpassing both Germany and France — the two most recent World Cup winners — to get into the Final Four of the first-ever UEFA Nations League. Now the Dutch have another chance at redemption as they begin their qualification campaign for the 2020 Euros, as they host Belarus — a team that has never qualified for the Euros or the World Cup — in a match that will live stream from Rotterdam.

Kickoff is scheduled for 8:45 p.m. Central European Time at the 51,000-seat Stadion Feijenoord, also known as De Kuip, in Rotterdam, Netherlands, on Thursday, March 21. In Belarus, the live stream will begin at 10:45 p.m., Moscow Standard Time.

The Netherlands is placed in Group C, and with the top two teams from each group qualifying for the 2020 tournament, the Dutch appear poised to end their major-competition qualification drought. Of the four opposing teams, per UEFA.com, only Germany appears capable of competing with Netherlands for the top spot. Estonia and Northern Ireland round out Group C.

Netherlands has drawn England in the UEFA Nations League semifinals scheduled for June 6 in Portugal, and England Manager Gareth Southgate is expected to turn up in Holland on Thursday to scout the Dutch team, according to The Standard.
