Holland buried the world champions 3 – 0 .  Here are five quick thoughts on it (For more check out this report):

  1. The best game of the tournament so far.  Exciting action from start to finish, attacking football and excellent passing on display.
  2. The best goal of the tournament so far too.  An excellent sweeping counter-attack finished expertly by Wesley Sneijder, something to show youngsters to copy.
  3. Most controversial decision of the tournament – but technically correct – although maybe the law needs re-writing!
  4. Italy miss Cannavaro incredibly – they aren’t normally poor in defence and yet yesterday were incredibly weak. 
  5. There were some outstanding saves from arguably the best two goalkeepers in the tournament. The score would probably have been something like 5-2 with poorer goalkeepers.
