  1. The Netherlands?

    Or did you mean clubs only?

  2. This post was for clubs only.

    You're right though, The Netherlands is probably the first soccer team that comes to mind when you think Orange. In fact, I got the idea for this post from a Cruyff Netherlands shirt I was looking at at a couple of days ago.
