The Netherlands have already found themselves struggling on the road to Euro 2016 and they have a further complication now as Guus Hiddink has quit as manager.
It may end up being a blessing as on his second stint as national manager, Hiddink lost five of his ten games in charge.
Despite the managerial setback though, bookmaker William Hill have left the Netherlands as 13/8 favourite to still top Euro 2016 qualification Group A, although a third place finish looks more than viable for the Oranje.
With four qualification games to go, the Netherlands are five points behind leaders Iceland and three behind second placed Czech Republic.
Holland lost against both of them on the road, so will at least have the chance to make amends as their two remaining home games in Group A are against those two.
But there is no clear managerial choice for the Netherlands from here with top prospects Frank de Boer and Phillip Cocu both settled and going well in club jobs.
It is looking like the inexperienced Danny Blind, who was scheduled to take over from Hiddink after Euro 2016 may get thrown in the deep end despite only having had 14 months of managerial experience.
