An otherwise perfect, and incredibly prolific, qualifying campaign was marred on the final day by the Dutch.
Having previously enjoyed a 100 per cent record. Netherlands were defeated 3-2 away in Sweden, though their qualification was already assured.
Perhaps the highlight of the qualification process was an 11-0 home win over San Marino in October 2011.
Robin van Persie scored four times as Netherlands recorded their biggest ever victory.
Results in recent friendlies have been mixed though, a 0-0 draw with Switzerland in November followed by a 3-0 home defeat to Germany and a last-minute victory in England in February.
More worryingly, Bulgaria beat Netherlands 2-1 on May 26 in the build-up to the Euro 2012 finals.
