    The Netherlands will win the World Cup of Soccer this year. They will easily spank Spain or Germany in the final. You will see.

    And I said it's Holland :)

    Having van Bommel and de Jong in the middle will make it so difficult for either Spain on Germany in the middle, you can guarentee if it's Spain then Xavi and Iniesta will wake up on monday morning with a few bruises. Xavi and Iniesta are great players, but they don't like coming up against physical players. When I think how Chelsea and Inter Milan have dealt with them when playaing against Barcelona over the past few years, they haven't found it easy at all.

    Right, once Germany plays and wins tonight ppl going to be saying that about them.

    However both teams are playing quite spectacularly and should give us a brilliant final.

    I picked the Dutch to win the tournament when it started, so if what you say is true, I will be $500 richer!

    google "Bobbi Eden" & "World Cup"

    I think this adds a lot of pressure on the Netherlands team. They aren't just playing for their country anymore...

    You never know, a single goal changes everything as the Dutch proved against Brazil, but certainly there's a big quality gap between the two teams. I pretty much think today's match was the "true" final, meaning the two best teams faced each other, being each one the most capable of hurting the other.

    But respect to Holland, anything can happen.

    De Jong will get sent off, or atleast a very early yellow and will be rendered obsolete by halftime.

    Will Holland win the whole thing? Probably. Spain could very well win for all I know. But that's why the game is played.

    De Jong never gets sent off and avoids early yellows the majority of the time. I have no idea how but he gets away with it.

    It has only been successful in German games in the tournament so might not be correct in other games.

    Yeah, sticking eight men behind the ball permanently and relying on diving, real tactical genius :roll:

    Absolutely it is, letting them have it easy and playing into their hands is suicide.

    I'm from Scandinavia and I like Holland/netherlands and hope they will beat Spain in the final.

    They are a margically better team in my view - but it will be a tough match.
    I hope we will see a lof of goals from both teams, but in the end Holland will win it, I think :)

    Go Oranje
