Netherlands, informally Holland or Dutch, is a western country with dense population. The European part of the Netherlands shares maritime borders in the North Sea with Belgium, the United Kingdom, and Germany, bordering Germany to the east, Belgium to the south, and the North Sea to the northwest.
“Netherlands” literally means “lower countries” for its low land and flat geography, with only about 50% of its land exceeding one meter above sea level. The southwest wind causes a maritime climate – warm summers and cool winters. Temperature differences in the southeast of the country are bigger than it is close to the Dutch coastline.
Ahead of hockey and volleyball, football is the most popular participant sport in Netherlands. Many Netherlands football shirts are popular among loyal fans. The Netherlands national football team has achieved great success in the past decades after hard work and constantly improved skills. Now, home shirt of the team published in 2016 is my favorite football shirt.
