Well, I love how the Netherlands play... They have some very talented players and they seem to function together like an engine (or as the old cliche goes, like an orange machine :P) which is what I miss with Spain...

I'd love to see some more of Babel, Huntelaar and I think he should have called Drenthe but anyway, it's a good team. That Engelaard kid is reli good, I was disappointed he's already 29... He's got an amazing phisique and he reli helps the team in the midfield... I think he's the difference-maker, because without him Holland was having more problems and were receiving more goals.

And well, they've got Van Nistelrooy, Robben, Van Persie, Kuyt, Sneijder, Van der Vaart and all, so they reli are a threat.

With Italy, I think their problem is the coach. Donadoni reli sucks as compared to Lippi. And well, he's left out some pretty legendary names like Inzaghi... Also, trouble with injuries (Cannavaro) and a bit of bad luck. I do like Italy and I pulled for them in the past World Cup after Spain was eliminated, but this year I feel like we do have a little chance of success so I want them eliminated today :P

And well, France looked old in 2006, go figure now... I think they reli need some new faces in there...

Anyway, I'm also thinking Romania might be much more competitive than we all think. After all, they are the ones that might eliminate both France and Italy after everyone assumed Romania would be 4th. So let's wait and see...

Het guys! Thanks for your support!

As you'll probably know by now we (Holland) won 2-0 yesterday so unfortunately for France and Romania their EC is over.

Weird though that we might meet italy again...

Well, Spain's got Italy now... They are not as impressive as they were in the past World Cup but I don't trust our team one bit, mainly because of the coach, so I'm afraid Italy's gonna send us home and confirm Spain as the ever-aspiring-always-disappointing selection :P Anyway, I do think it will be a decent match...

And once again, congrats to Holland/Netherlands cos they really kick some ass... Great football, quick but technical, very direct :D

Kudos to Hiddink, he's doing some miracles all over the world... but I guess the Netherlands will be too much for Russia... Let's wait and see
