You have to put into context what the Dutch coaches have accomplished with their teams, The Soca Warriors have never been to the World Cup and the Socceroos have made it after 32 years.
The Soca Warriors are in Group B with England and Sweden, quality opposition and they still have a chance of making it out of the group with their last game against Paraguay
.
More importantly all their teams are still in contention for the group spots
Aside:
England. They do not coach their own, and have no one coaching other squads. Why would anyone pick a Englishman to coach your squad? The last successful one was Sir Alf Ramsey, England’s coach in 1966 when they last won the World Cup. In fact, the EPL top four teams are coached by, Sir Alex Ferguson, Jose Mourinho, Rafael Benitez, and Arsene Wenger, all non-English.
Best coach: Ghana’s Ratomir Dujkovic, in a strong position to keep their team in contention for the second spot, in arguably the toughest group.
