Holland buried the world champions 3 – 0 . Here are five quick thoughts on it (For more check out this report):
- The best game of the tournament so far. Exciting action from start to finish, attacking football and excellent passing on display.
- 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.
- Most controversial decision of the tournament – but technically correct – although maybe the law needs re-writing!
- Italy miss Cannavaro incredibly – they aren’t normally poor in defence and yet yesterday were incredibly weak.
- 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.
