Netherlands Offense gets the Glory Holland Defense Wins the Game

Yes, Arjen “Rockin” Robben adds a potent weapon to the Netherlands offense. It was great seeing him in the lineup after returning from a hamstring injury and all glory goes to him for scoring the first goal. In my opinion, the Man of the Match was Dutch goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg and the Oranje Defense.

Holland’s goalkeeper Stekelenburg had many brilliant saves in shutting out Slovakia for 93 minutes and was the difference in the match. The England national team desperately needed someone of his quality in their net.

Wesley Sneijder scored the game winning goal in the 84th minute after some unselfish passing by the Netherlands. The Dutch have never won the World Cup losing to Germany in the 1974 finals and again in1978 losing in the finals to Argentina.

The Netherlands are now 4-0 in the 2010 World Cup with four times as many wins as Italy, France and England combined in South Africa, 2010. Now Holland will have to beat Brasil in the quarterfinals to keep the dream alive. A very tough assignment. Best of success.

Argentina Overpower Defenseless Mexico 3-1

Carlos Tevez was the Man of the Match, scoring two goals, leading Argentina to a decisive 3-1 victory over Mexico. Tevez blasted in one of the tournament’s best goals – a rocket shot from 25 yards.

Mexico made critical defensive mistakes and yet again the referee blew another call. Argentina capitalized and moves on to the quarterfinals.

I will make a Big Wager on Uruguay over Ghana. Root em in.

My Brackets are still golden. In the semifinals, I have Brazil beating Uruguay and Spain beating Agentina. Defense wins the match.

Meaning Brasil and Spain in the Finals. Ay caramba!

Germany Blitzkrieg England 4-1 at World Cup 2010

Blitzkrieg, as in Lightning War. A Concentration of Overwhelming Force and Rapid Speed to break through enemy lines and proceed without regard to its flank.

Deutschland’s blitzkrieg of constant motion kept the Swiss-Cheese Goalie of Britain off balance and unable to respond effectively.

Why was a healthy Robert Green sitting on the bench?  And yes, the horrendous officiating robbed England of a goal. At least it didn’t alter the outcome. It was clearly Germany’s day. Congratulations Germany.

10 Games in World Cup 2010 for Italy, France and England resulted in only 1 Win combined for all three sides.
