The Netherlands national football team (Dutch: Nederlands nationaal voetbalelftal) represents the Netherlands in international men's association football and is directed by the Royal Dutch Football Association (KNVB). The football team is colloquially referred to as Oranje, as a tribute to the House of Orange-Nassau, or Holland, referring to the country itself. In Dutch people colloquially speak of het Nederlands elftal (the Dutch eleven).

The team was first assembled in 1905. The Dutch hold the record of losing the most World Cup finals without managing a single triumph after finishing as runners-up in 1974, 1978, and 2010, losing to West Germany, Argentina and Spain respectively. They won the European Championship in 1988. At the peak of their success in the 1970s, the team was famous for its mastery of Total Football and was nicknamed Clockwork Orange for its precision passing.

The Swedish national football team is the national football team of Sweden and is controlled by the Swedish Football Association, the governing body for football in Sweden. Sweden made their first World Cup appearance in 1934. Since then, Sweden has made eleven World Cup appearances and four appearances in the European Championships. They placed second in the 1958 World Cup, and third in both 1950 and 1994. Sweden's accomplishments also include a gold medal in the 1948 Summer Olympics, and bronze medals in 1924 and 1952. They reached the semi-finals in UEFA Euro 1992.

Traditionally, Sweden are rivals with Denmark and Norway, although other rivalries have developed over the years. Sweden failed to qualify for the 2010 World Cup in the group qualification stage, having been edged out by Portugal. As a result, team manager Lars Lagerbäck quit and Erik Hamrén was appointed the new manager. Sweden's current captain is Zlatan Ibrahimović with Daniel Majstorović as vice captain. Sweden's home ground is at Råsunda Stadium.
