-Netherlands Win against Sweden was not enough for The Orange to qualify for next year's World Cup in Russia.The Dutch side have failed to qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 2002 after series of bad results recorded since the resignation of Van Gaal.An Arjen Robben-inspired 2-0 win over Sweden was not enough to qualify the team cause the visitors are behind in Group A on goal difference.Dick Advocaat's men went into the match knowing they needed to score at least seven goals and win by six to secure a top-two spot, and although Robben's fine performance saw them claim a comfortable win, they were far too profligate to get near their target.They were mostly wasteful, but Robben - by far the best player on the pitch - showed his class with a stunning second just before the break to at least provide a little extra belief.Despite their dominance, the hosts struggled to craft chances before Dost proved effective in his role just before the hour mark, nodding on a lofted pass to Wijnaldum, who shot straight at Olsen from 16 yards.
