Hiddink looking to build on Spain win

Netherlands can use Tuesday's 2-0 victory over Spain to help reignite their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign, says Guus Hiddink.

Guus Hiddink hopes Tuesday's friendly win over Spain can help boost Netherlands' Euro 2016 qualifying campaign later this year.

The 68-year-old has not endured the best start to his second spell in charge of the national team, with just two wins prior to the 2-0 triumph over the European champions.

It is in their competitive matches that Netherlands have suffered most with disappointing defeats to Czech Republic and Iceland in Group A of qualifying, but Hiddink hopes they can claw their way back.

"This gives a lot of confidence for the team," he said. "We have to consider this game as a good start towards the next qualifier in June.

"We wanted to win this game, I am just very [happy] and particularly with the first half when I saw a team play the way I want to play football."

Netherlands' next qualifier sees them face Latvia in Riga on June 12.
