London :

England had to settle for a 0-0 draw with the Netherlands on Wednesday in a closely fought but uninspiring friendly at Villa Park. The best chances all fell in the opening 45 minutes. Dutch forward Dirk Kuijt hit the post and England missed three great opportunities, two of which fell to Shaun Wright-Phillips on his first start for his country. World Cup qualifying resumes for both sides in late March, when England meet Northern Ireland and Azerbaijan in Group Six and the Dutch play Romania and Armenia in Group One.
