AMSTERDAM, Nov 8 (Reuters) Dick Advocaat is stepping down as Netherlands coach after his team's two friendly internationals this month, he said on Wednesday.

The 70-year-old took over from Danny Blind in mid-year but, in his third spell in charge, proved unable to turn around Dutch fortunes as they failed to qualify for next year's World Cup.
