The Netherlands soccer team left their hotel in Johannesburg, South Africa on Sunday (July 11) to head for nearby Soccer City where they will play Spain in the World Cup final.
Coach Bert van Marwijk has no injury worries for the match and no players under suspension.
This will be the Netherlands' third appearance in a World Cup final following back-to-back defeats in 1974 and 1978 and although they will go into the match as underdogs, they will be confident having extended their winning streak in World Cup matches of 14 games with victory over Uruguay in the semi-finals.
The match kicks off at 1830gmt.
