So we'll have to beat Sweden by 4 and hope Switzerland can contain Norway. Easy :lol:

It would be cool if the Netherlands could qualify. They will probably qualify all teams on the womens side except womens rugby/basketball and maybe womens football. :thumbup:

Actually "only" beating Sweden by 2 will do. Both teams will be at GD 0, but Netherlands will have scored more goals in any case. 

Netherlands will however need to win by 5 goals in case Norway beats Switzerland by 1 goal (and if NOR wins by 2, then NED needs to wins by 6 and so on).
