It really isnt that surprising how bad Netherlands are when u consider the back line they had! I laughed at it the other day when somebody posted. Tete has been better than I anticipated for Ajax so far but he is still very raw and has been thrown in the deep end. Riedewald is even rawer and just not ready yet for such a high level, he's not even been very good for Ajax. Bruma has always been a bit of a donkey - is good enough for Eredivisie but really not an International level player. Van Dijk is the only defender there that I'd be comfortable with. And ZOet is just a decent keeper but not a reassuring experienced force like van der Saar was back in the day.
Obviously there arent really any other better options necessarily, that's a whole different subject tho! Likes of Rekik, Kongolo, Veltman, van der Wiel, van der beek, etc... are also very worrying as alternatives!
I think its gonna be a while until you get some real class players again - and thats only if players Nouri, Mirani, de Ligt, de Wit brothers, Boultam, Bazoer, Bergwijn, Donny van der Beek, etc... reach their potential
I also think Propper should of been in squad, especially after his performance against Ajax
