As one would expect from a Nike Dri-Fit shirt made in 2000; this shirt is very baggy would likely fit someone who wears XXL in the current era.
This shirt continued the black and orange theme retained from the previous home shirt, with the notable difference being the transition from foldable collar to v-neck, however, this shirt would neglect all of the white accents. As the 3rd of Nike’s Holland’s home shirts, this shirt will always remain synonymous with the Dutch as they reached the semi-final of the 2000 European Championships.
As Holland prepared as co-hosts of Euro 2000 with Belgium, they kicked off the new Millennium with a 2-1 win over Germany, and their form was strong ahead of their match-day 1 opener against the Czech Republic, where they won 1-0; a result that set the tone for a 100% winning record in the group; the tip of which was a 3-2 over 1998 World Cup winners France. A 6-1 win over Yugoslavia in Rotterdam would preposition ‘La Oranje’ for a semi-final showdown with Italy on 29/06/00, where the host would bow out after a bizarre penalty shoot-out loss. A draw and a defeat to the Republic of Ireland and Portugal would be a sign of things to come in 2001 as the Dutch sought qualification for the 2002 FIFA World Cup. Only once would the Dutch taste defeat in 2001, however, such was the significance of their defeat to Ireland on 01/09/2001, that they would not reach the tournament finals. The last time this shirt would surface was in the 1-1 draw with England on 13/02/02.
