Holland return home from World Cup to hero’s welcome

The Netherlands world cup team returned home to a hero’s welcome on a boat parade. 600,000 Oranje fans lined the canals of Amsterdam and welcomed the second-place Champions as the Winners Holland truly are.  

Clearly Holland is the best team to have never won the World Cup. Do some research on 1974 , 1978 and 2010. Unbelievably, heart breaking.

The Netherlands players first went to a private reception with the Dutch PM and Queen Beatrix in The Hague. There the coach [manager] Bert van Marwijk and team captain Giovanni van Bronckhorst were officially knighted.

Then they were helicoptered to Amsterdam where two thirds of a million Dutch people lined the canals to celebrate the Holland national team’s boat parade.

In loving memory – William Becks –  Arnhem, Holland. Thanks for your loving Oranje fans. Thanks team for your world-class play. Thanks for your support.

Hold your head high, Winners. Be Strong. Walk in Confidence.

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.
