The Dutch football association said Thursday that coach Danny Blind's team will play Wales in Cardiff on Nov. 13 and world champion Germany four days later in Hannover.

The friendlies will help Wales and Germany tune up for Euro 2016 and allow Blind to begin a rebuilding process of the team that slumped to fourth place in qualifying Group A after finishing third at the World Cup in Brazil last year.
