An absolute top match which is just a little too early. Although the Netherlands does not have to do under for Brazil, the Brazilians still the favorite. The Netherlands must make no mistakes especially careful in defense. Possibly creating opportunities for the Dutch attack because Brazil will not go digging. Nevertheless, the Brazilians have a good defense. We think this game needs an extension and possibly penalties to determine who is the ultimate winner.
- June 30, 2010: Today Orange held a private workout. It was practiced include on penalty kicks.
Netherlands, on the basis Ooijer who replaced the injured Mathijssen, started badly in the competition. Brazil soon came to a 1-0 lead. Melo surprised the Dutch defense with a great opening pass through the middle that reached Robinho and 1-0 noted. The rest of the first half gave Orange too much space away and put little pressure on the ball. Stekelenburg was in action a few times to get beautiful shots from Kaka and Maicon. After half time Netherlands which happily alongside after a shot from Sneijder over the head of Melo own goal was headed. Then tilted the contest and the Netherlands became more dangerous. A corner was headed on by Kuyt and Sneijder, the smallest guy on the field, headed touch. Brazil got even handle a red card. The lock was unnerving at odds over and over again, but there was not scored.
