Bert van Marwijk: Holland must win to stand any chance of going through
Portugal will be hoping to make Holland the first high-profile casualty of Euro 2012 when they meet in the final round of fixtures in Group B.
Sunday will see the so-called Group of Death put the final nails into the respective coffins of two disappointed nations.
There is every chance that Holland will see their European Championship adventure brought to an abrupt halt, with back-to-back defeats leaving them at the foot of the group and requiring something special.
They were considered to be among the pre-tournament favourites to go all the way, but know anything less than victory over Portugal will see them heading home.
Portugal enjoy a more favourable standing, but they too have little margin for error.
They cannot afford to rely on results elsewhere, with there no guarantee that table-topping Germany will see off Denmark.
