The Netherlands will face Andorra on Tuesday at that Estadi Comunal d'Andorra la Vella in Andorra la Vella, Andorra and will look to inch closer to their World Cup qualification while facing a team who has only won three international matches ever.
Andorra is proud but tiny nation and the venue for this qualifying match. The Estadi Comunal d'Andorra la Vella is also used for every one of the country's first and second division domestic league games.
The nation is found high between the Pyrenean peaks, but the principality has only ever witnessed its football team win three matches since its first official international match nearly two decades ago.
Andorra have faced the Netherlands five times, losing all of them and conceding a total of 19 goals. The Dutch, under the stewardship of Louis van Gaal, failed to beat lowly Estonia on Friday and caused mild embarrassment. However, earning anything less than a full three points would be an historical feat and something not soon forgotten.
The Oranje realistically should have no problems in picking up the three points, which would all but assure them World Cup qualification. The team is currently sitting six points clear of Romania at the top of their group. Having scored no goals and with no points, Andorra is at the bottom.
The Netherlands are without Georginio Wijnaldum and Rafael van der Vaart because of injuries, and they're replaced by Wesley Sneijder and Adam Maher in van Gaal's squad. However, their most notable absentee is Arjen Robben, who is suspended after accumulating yellow cards.
Kick-off for the match is at 2:30 p.m. ET and can be watched online here.
