Dennis Bergkamp rolls back the years with a wonderful goal for Ajax

Dennis Bergkamp turns back the clock with a golazo, Chelsea enjoy the spoils as champions, and much more in the Sweeper.

When it comes to talent, there are few who can match former Arsenal striker Dennis Bergkamp. And the 48-year-old seemingly still has what it takes to score wonderful goals, even at his age.

Taking to the field again for Ajax -- the club where he now works as assistant manager -- in a memorial match to mark the 20th anniversary of Dick van Dijk's death, the Dutchman rolled back the years with this fine strike.

Since retiring in 2006, Arsenal have struggled to replace Bergkamp, with even Mesut...

Netherlands must end obsession with past after Danny Blind sacking

The past two years have been difficult for fans of the Dutch national team. After finishing third at the World Cup in Brazil in 2014, they have not only had to endure losses to teams like Iceland, Czech Republic and Turkey, but two-and-a-half years of bad, boring and painfully naive football as well.

Much to the relief of those fans, Netherlands boss Danny Blind was sacked after another loss for the Oranje, a 2-0 defeat in Bulgaria. And maybe spirits within the Dutch squad will be lifted as...

Danny Blind's use of Matthijs de Ligt for Netherlands was selfish

Matthijs de Ligt had made two top-flight starts for Ajax before Danny Blind put him in the squad against Bulgaria.

Danny Blind is out as coach of the Dutch national team and Fred Grim has replaced him. (From Blind to Grim: insert your own joke here.)

That was the fallout from the Oranje's 2-0 away defeat to Bulgaria, which left them fourth in Group A, six points behind France, three behind Sweden and two behind Bulgaria. Automatic qualification is likely beyond them but they still control their destiny in terms of a playoff spot given they have home dates against Bulgaria and Sweden coming up in September and...

Brazil and U.S. resurgent while Alexis Sanchez lashes out: Heroes & Villains

Shaka Hislop talks which of England's strikers will most likely feature in the 2018 World Cup next summer.

It may be another international break, but with World Cup qualifiers raging all over the globe, there's still plenty at stake. Iain Macintosh runs through the good and the bad of the action as teams jostle for position on the road to Russia 2018.


Brazil haven't quite qualified for the 2018 World Cup yet, but if they were to place a bulk order of "Teach Yourself Russian" books this week, they wouldn't have to worry too much about keeping the receipt safe. Their away trip to second place...

As top stars like Depay and Janssen flop, why is Dutch football in crisis?

Two years ago, Memphis Depay was the great Dutch attacking talent. Having scored for fun in the Eredivisie with PSV Eindhoven, he joined Manchester United at the age of 21. But in last month's transfer window, United dumped him on Olympique Lyon, who may yet come to regret the purchase.

Last summer, Vincent Janssen was the great Dutch attacking talent. Having scored for fun in the Eredivisie with AZ Alkmaar, he joined Spurs at the age of 22. So far, the only goals he has scored for Tottenham have...
