Ronald Koeman has been named the new Netherlands head coach on a deal that will run until the completion of the 2022 World Cup.
The Dutch have been without a head coach since Dick Advocaat stepped down in November after they failed to qualify for the 2018 finals.
Former Everton manager Koeman has been out of a job since he was dismissed by the Premier League club back in October.
He has been appointed on a contract that will run until the 2022 finals in Qatar, which begin in November of that year.

The 54-year-old is Netherlands’ fourth head coach since Louis van Gaal left to take over at Manchester United after leading Oranje to third place at the 2014 World Cup.
Guus Hiddink and Danny Blind held the position before Advocaat during a difficult period, in which they failed to qualify for Euro 2016 or this year’s tournament in Russia.
