Holland will play without a Van in their team for the first time since 1996 against Chile on Monday – due to Robin van Persie’s suspension.
The Dutch skipper misses out on their final Group B game after picking up two yellow cards in their opening wins over Spain and Australia.
And that means there will be no players in the squad with Van in their name.
The last time it happened was 221 matches ago against China in 1996.
And it was two years earlier in a group clash against Belgium when they last played a World Cup match without a win.
Holland lost that day – so they’ll be hoping for better fate against Chile.
