The time has come for Netherlands to succeed: Robben

Amsterdam: Arjen Robben is confident that Netherlands are finally ready to win a major tournament again.

Oranje were crowned European champions in 1988, but have since been unable to add more silverware to their trophy cabinet.

Nevertheless, Robben feels that Bert van Marwijk`s side have the quality to go all the way this summer, regardless of their far-from-perfect preparation for the tournament.

"At first sight, we don`t seem to be as well prepared as two years ago ahead of the World Cup. However, we`re clearly making progress now that everybody`s joined up with team," Robben was quoted as saying by ANP.

"I believe that we have the quality to make an impact at the Euros. We have a lot of players who are at their peak at the age of 27, 28, 29. The time has come to reap the rewards [of our work from the past few years]."

Netherlands have been drawn with Denmark, Germany and Portugal in Group B. They start Euro 2012 with the match against the Danes on June 9.
