[WORLD CUP: Off the Post] Dutch aerospace company SXC has promised the Netherlands players a trip into space if they keep up their excellent form and bring home the World Cup.

The Dutch have reached the final three times -- 1974, 1978 and 2010 – but fell short. If they go all the way in Brazil, they have a chance to go far out.

“As a company of Dutch origin, we are mega proud of the achievements of Oranje in Brazil,” SXC co-founder Michiel Mol. “An unearthly performance deserves an unearthly reward.

“We are going to try to take the players literally to a higher level. [We'll take] all 23 players, and of course, Coach Louis van Gaal.”
