After both slipped-up on Saturday, it’s impossible to downplay how crucial this clash is in Rotterdam.

On Saturday night, Netherlands had the chance to wrap up World Cup qualification in Montenegro, knowing a win would do it.

Oranje looked set to do just that when Memphis’ brace, a penalty and then an audacious back-heal flick, had them 2-0 up.

Holland remained 2-0 in front until the 82nd minute but Montenegro struck twice in quick succession to snatch a 2-2 draw.

So, that late collapse means it goes to the final day.

As it stands in Group G, Netherlands are top on 20 points with both Norway and Turkey on 18.

So, this match at De Kuip may see the winner qualify but there’s the added jeopardy that the losers isn’t guaranteed a play-off place due to Turkey’s presence.

A point would be enough for Louis van Gaal’s side to secure top spot, unless Turkey beat Montenegro by 24 clear goals which somehow seems unlikely.

Nevertheless, Oranje fans will not take anything for granted.

Their side failed to qualify for Euro 2016 and then World Cup 2018, missing out on back-to-back tournaments for the first time since the 198os.

They were at this summer’s European Championships but crashed out in the round of 16, losing 2-0 to Czech Republic at Puskás Aréna.

Holland have also lost four of their last 20 qualifications fixtures on home soil but seriously cannot afford another defeat here.

Will it be a night of celebration, mixed in with relief, in Rotterdam?

Will Norway claim the win they need?

Mohamed Elyounoussi

Norway meanwhile should be making the 602 mile journey south joint-top with Holland at the summit of this group.

But, on Saturday evening, Ståle Solbakken’s side threw away two points, only drawing 0-0 with minnows Latvia in Oslo.

The Lions had 26 shots in that one at Ullevål Stadion but only five of those were on target.

Norway are now unbeaten in seven World Cup qualifiers, holding both Turkey and Holland to draws in that time, but that draw with Latvia is a major setback.

So, the visitors are currently third and need to better Turkey’s result in Montenegro to finish above them.

Of course, a victory would see them leapfrog the Dutch and that would guarantee, at least, a play-off spot.

However, Norway have only ever won two of nine visits to the Netherlands, both friendly wins, coming in 1929 and 1951.

It would be heartbreaking for the Norwegians if they ended the night eliminated from World Cup qualification.

They’ve only ever appeared at four major tournaments, the World Cups of 1938, 1994 and 1998, and, most recently, Euro 2000.

For both Euro 2016 and Euro 2020, their dreams were crushed in the play-offs, losing to Hungary in the former and Serbia, 13 months ago, in the latter.

Will it be another night of qualification disappointment for Norway?

Louis van Gaal is unbeaten in six matches since returning for a third stint as Netherlands Head Coach.

If he can make that seven, he’ll be taking his nation to a World Cup, just as he did in Brazil in 2014 where they finished third.

Holland though don’t have a nailed down number one goalkeeper.

In the summer, when Jasper Cillessen contracted Covid-19, 39 year old Maarten Stekelenburg played in all four Euro 2020 games, 11 years after starting a World Cup Final.

Tim Krul is another of the four goalkeepers to have played a competitive game in 2021 but, right now, Feyenoord’s Justin Bijlow is number one.

In defence, Virgil van Dijk will be more desperate than most for his side get a result in this game.

The 30 year old has never played at a World Cup or Euros, either because his team didn’t qualify or due to his anterior cruciate ligament injury.

Fellow defender Jurriën Timber has pulled out of the squad injured but he wouldn’t play anyway because the back four is settled.

Matthijs de Ligt is the other centre-back with Daley Blind and Denzel Dumfries, who excelled at the European Championships, either side.

In midfield, Donny van de Beek has been left out the squad all together having played just 154 minutes (10.7%) for Manchester United this season.

He actually hasn’t represented his country since March’s win in Gibraltar.

The first-choice midfield features Frenkie de Jong at the base with Davy Klaassen and Georginio Wijnaldum.

The latter, now of Paris Saint-Germain, has 26 Holland goals to his name, 18 of which have come in 29 competitive appearances since October 2018.

In attack, Luuk de Jong, Quincy Promes, Ryan Babel and Cody Gakpo have all been left out the squad and Steven Berghuis is injured.

Nevertheless, Donyell Malen and Arnaut Danjuma Groeneveld are the first picks out-wide with Memphis through the middle.

Danjuma has been excellent since joining Villarreal from AFC Bournemouth this summer, scoring seven in 15 appearances for the Spanish club.

As for Memphis, his brace in Montenegro means he’s scored 37 international goals, netting 28 in 36 caps since September 2018.

Can he fire Oranje to Qatar?

As for Norway, given that they make this trip without their one superstar centre-forward, they’ll need less heralded squad members to step forward.

Ørjan Nyland, who started the 2020 Carabao Cup Final for Aston Villa, will keep goal for the fifth qualifier in a row.

The 31 year old, now of AFC Bournemouth, rose to prominence in 2012, helping second-tier Hødd win the Norwegian Cup on penalties.

Will he be a national hero again?

At the back, they’re without both Jonas Svensson and Brentford’s Kristoffer Ajer due to injury, the latter a big blow to their hopes.

So, Marius Lode, of domestic champions and league-leaders Bodø/Glimt, will win just his fourth cap at the back.

Thus, Morten Thorsby and Mathias Normann, the latter of Norwich City, will have a key role, screening in front of the young back four.

Further forward, Jens Petter Hauge could come into the XI to add a bit of creative flair.

The 22 year old, currently on loan at Eintracht Frankfurt from A.C. Milan, has already scored three times since joining the Bundesliga club.

He could take Kristian Thorstvedt’s place with captain Martin Ødegaard moving in side and Mohamed Elyounoussi keeping his place on the left.

Elyounoussi scored both in a 2-0 victory over Montenegro last month while Ødegaard has actually only scored once in 35 caps, netting against Romania in June 2019.

As mentioned, the key absentee is Erling Braut Håland who last played for his country in September due to a muscular injury.

In his last cap, Håland scored a hat-trick against Gibraltar, his second international hat-trick, meaning he’s scored 12 in 15 caps overall.

He leaves enormous shoes to fill but Alexander Sørloth will do his best.

Despite only being 25, Sørloth has already represented nine clubs; he’s currently with Real Sociedad, on loan from RB Leipzig.

Josh King, who scored five times in Euro 2020 qualifying but hasn’t netted since, is the alternatives.

Will it be a famous night for Norway?
