As the Netherlands continue their quest to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, they can finally call up their best player once again. Barring a catastrophe in upcoming matches, Arjen Robben will be making his triumphant return to the field for his nation in qualifiers.

Robben has been in great form when he’s been on the field for Bayern Munich this season. The problem for Robben has been, as usual, he’s been dealing with injuries as much as he’s been healthy.

However, he looks as good as ever in recent weeks and looks poised to lead Bayern to more trophies this season. If Robben is at the top of his game, Bayern is going to be very difficult to beat.

The Netherlands will play a friendly against Belgium on November 9 in Luxembourg on November 13. While the friendly against Belgium should be a difficult match, there’s no questioning that they’re poised for a big victory over Luxembourg in their World Cup Qualifier.
