Netherlands started to World Cup campaign with impressive performances, but most people were not impressed with the goals they made of their game organization. The mental of the players were changed by Louis van Gaal to bring stability and more force to win in every game. Clarence Seedorf is one of the people impressed by the mentality progress made by the Dutch players in the recent time. Louis van Gaal is the manager who gave Seedorf his debut in Ajax when he was 16.
The mentality of the Dutch players was very impressive when they earn two victories against Australia and Spain. Dutch is the only major teams in World Cup history without any crown; the combination of skill and talent as well as the mentality of the present Dutch players can be one of the reasons to make the team as one of the World Cup champion contenders.
The contributions of star players are impressive, but the way the 11 players worked as a group made their games very impressive. The young and less famous players were playing beyond their level as well; while Louis van Gaal can bring tactical decisions to manage the player to perform better against the next teams.
