Netherlands are better than Spain football club because firstly they have won more world cups and trophies than Spain. Secondly, they had some of the best players in the 1998 world cup including, Marc Overmars, Phillip Cocu, Edgar Davids, Frank de Boer, Ronald de Boer, and Patrick Kluivert,the Argentina in the quarter-final. rematch of the 1978 final. Near the end of regular time, after an unsuccessful dive to draw a penalty, Argentinean Ariel Ortega head-butted Edwin van der Sar.[4] Ortega was sent off and the Netherlands won 2–1 after a Bergkamp goal in the 89th minute. Bergkamp's goal was famous because of its quality — he touched down a 60-yard (55 m) pass from Frank de Boer then reverse-flicked it inside Roberto Ayala and finally volleyed it past the Argentine goalkeeper. In the semi-final, the Netherlands took Brazil to a penalty shootout after a late Kluivert goal tied the match 1–1, but Brazil won the shootout 4–2 and advanced to the final. Netherlands lost the third place match 2–1 to upstart Croatia. Soon after the World Cup exit manager Guus Hiddink resigned after two tournaments in charge and was replaced by legendary ex-midfielder Frank Rijkaard.
Netherlands co-hosted Euro 2000 with Belgium and were one of the favourites coming into the tournament. Getting all three wins in the group stage, including a win over reigning World Cup champions France, they then crushed Yugoslavia 6–1 in the quarter-finals, with Kluivert getting a hat-trick.
The Netherlands biggest win was 9-0 against Finland and Norway. They have won a total of 11 titles and spain have only won 6.

Spain is far superior to Holland today. Historically, Holland is still the "best-never-to-win."

Pro said: 'Netherlands are better than Spain football club because firstly they have won more world cups and trophies than Spain." This is false, as Spain has 1 World Cup and Netherlands has 0. He goes on: "Marc Overmars, Phillip Cocu, Edgar Davids, Frank de Boer, Ronald de Boer, and Patrick Kluivert" funny thing is that ALL these players played in Spain for most of their careers! They all played for FC Barcelona too! With the exception of Davids, I think they all even played together for at least 1 season at FC Barcelona! Of these, Overmars & Cocu were the best, followed by Kluivert, Davids, and the twins.

What 11 titles? Holland has 1 title, a European cup. Spain has 2 European cups, & 1 Confederations Cup; even before their 2010 WC win Spain had more trophies! As it stands now, it's 3 to 1 titles in Spain's favor. Now if you want to count the other (below the official Mayor national Team) there is an even bigger disparity!

Olympics: Holland's 3 Bronze vs Spain's 1 Gold + 2 Silver
Sub-21 Euro Cup: Holland 2 vs Spain 2
Sub-20 WC: Holland 0 vs Spain 1
Sub-19 Euro Cup: Holland 0 vs Spain 7
Sub-17 Euro Cup: Holland 0 vs Spain 2
Meridian Cup: Holland 0 vs Spain 3
Sub-16 Euro Cup: Holland 0 vs Spain 6
