Makaay never has/had the chance to play regularly with the Netherland. Personally, I prefer him to RVN. Makaay did well wherever he went, and unlike RVN, he can get the ball, and score outside the 18-box.
He did great in LaLiga, CL, and Bundesliga. He is one of the most underrated strikers in the world, and he is quiet, and never make a fuss.
