Holland has won their semifinal match versus a game Uruguay squad in chilly Cape Town, South Africa.
The Netherlands dynamic duo of Arjen Robben and Wesley Sneijder overpowered Uruguay’s captain Diego Forlan. Noticably absent was Luis Suarez, serving his one game suspension for a red card on his ” Hand of Suarez ” play.
Perhaps the best goal of the 2010 World Cup was Giovanni van Bronckhorst in minute 17. His rocket shot from 30 meters just found the opening in the top right net.
Holland was cruising up 3-1 when in the 91st minute Uruguay scored a second goal, for a very brief time keping their dream alive. but it was Holland’s day and they advance to an all European Final.
We won yet again with the Netherlands as our Lock of the semifinals; having already won our Locks of the 3 group stage games, Round of 16, and Quarterfinals. A perfect 6-0 ATS. Winning’s fun.
Holland advances to the 2010 World Cup Finals. Congratulations Oranje.
Portugal gave up 1 goal in their entire 4 games in World Cup 2010. That was one goal too many as Spain’s David Villa knocked arch-rival Portugal out of the Cup.
Cristiano Ronaldo did not perform any magic. Ronaldo, Messi etc, great individual players are not scoring at all. Great teams are scoring just fine.
Offense gets the glory. Defense wins the game.
Spain survives and lives to fight another day. They luck out playing Paraguay in the quarterfinals. My Lock is Uruguay over Ghana. While world #1 Brazil battles Holland and Argentina is in a war with Germany who crushed England.
Those two quarterfinal matches would normally be worthy of a World Cup Final. And yes, my Brackets are still perfect in this extremely predictable World Cup. 8-0 in round of 16.
