Well seeing how the tournament is going, maybe it will be a Turkey-Russia final with whoever is the bigger underdog of the two winning that.

I don't care about the US TV Ratings, Van Basten is smart yeah some of the decisions he made may be questioned but still as a dutch fan i will miss him as manager

You are do bitter since the Dutch don't have Dick Advocatt any more. They should have won this tournament, period! As normal, they like Spain and Portugal, they disappoint! Best keeper, best striker in the tourney and still loose. Stay bitter.

Dude I'm disappointed and i really thought this team was the team to do it, the core is relatively young and with a great under 21 program, winning 2010 is a real possibility even with a new manager

best striker in the tourney

That's Lukas Podolski or David Villa.

Ruud is still the best striker and is 31, in his prime. Stop the bitterness everyone.

Now just hear this:

Dude, they choked, get over it. I would like to see the Dutch to win this and every World Cup as well. In 1994, I went to both the round of 16 game verses Ireland in Orlando (on July 4) and their game at the Cotton Bowl against Brasil (hottest game I've ever been to). They tanked today and were not aggressive like Russia was. Don't fret, Spain tanks much more.

I second Podolski. I also really like Germany to take it all.

Well, I'm disappointed. But, that's the way the tournament's gone so far, so its not really surprising.

-sigh- I just wish they had taken it a little bit farther.

Oh well. I guess it's time to look forward to South Africa in 2010, or that they can at least qualify for it.

I'm pulling for Russia for the rest of the tournament, though. They played damn good football today!

Looking ahead for the Netherlands for 2010 qualifying we find are selves in the easiest group with the only competition coming from Scotland and Norway,

FYR Macedonia and Iceland are the other two

I noticed that last week. Oranje have no excuse to not make it to South Africa, not when they're in minnow city for qualifying.

Don't get me started on penalty kicks though. As exciting as they may be, you might as well just have a game of rock-paper-scissors decide it, since it's 99% the luck of choosing right.

And, see ya later Holland. 3-1 Ruskies.

i disagree, some penalties just

I really hate penalties because they seem like they'd be really easy to score. I never actually taken one, but from what I can tell all you have to do is kick it to the top half of the goal (like in the video), the keeper will be defenseless no matter which side you choose.

It's going to be a tough game today for Italy. The loss of Pirlo is going to be huge, he may be their best, or at least most valuable, player. He's like the point guard for an already weak offense. This is especially bad news with an underacheiving defense. If Italy going to win this one they're going to need someone to step up in the middle field and play strong defense.

MUCH easier said than done.

i can't wait for today's game, hopefully it'll be a showcase of attacking football (from the Spanish at least). i'm not sure if the Italian centre backs will be able to deal with the pace of Villa and Torres, though the Spanish shouldn't pose much of a threat with their height at set pieces. hoping the Spanish go through, overall they've been arguably the best team in the tournament so far, in my opinion anyways.

and as for penalties, they're tough for both the taker and the 'keeper, speaking as someone who has saved a few as a goalie in school. even scored the winner in one shootout ^_^ (a few years ago mind you)

Italy's out. Spain bounced them out via PKs.

Who would've predicted Spain vs. Russia and Germany vs. Turkey in the semis?

Will Spain finally live up to expectations. Maybe but I'm going with the Russians to take it all. Just wait for South Africa 2010. Italy repeats as World Cup Champions! :D
