Commenting article: Dutch Coach: We're On World Cup Mission

The coach of the Dutch football team, who set up an all-European final against Spain or Germany on Sunday after seeing off Uruguay, has said they have come with a mission to South Africa and there are not there yet.

"Our first final since 1974 and 1978 - that came up in my mind in the second half. "It's so very special and, as a small country, we can be so very proud. We have a mission and we have almost succeeded but we are not there yet,” Bert van Marwijk said following the close victory on Tuesday night.

Holland looked comfortable at 3-1 up, though Uruguay made them sweat by pulling back a goal in the second minute of stoppage time.

Holland is playing like bullies. If they are going to be kicking, pushing and shoving, they should not be allowed to wear shoes with cleats on them. lol

That's why I said "unwittingly". Maybe "unintentionally" would have been the better word?

"you have unwittingly summoned WW"

No, I haven't. Who in their right mind would? Ever heard of Bellatrix Lestrange?

Ronaldo is over-rated as well, he did not perform up to his hype in this tournament.

"Forl?n was a positive exception to this....however as of yesterday the highest possible for him this edition is 3rd place."

Forlan is great, I love him! I also like the German Miroslav Close a lot. Kaka is over-rated, he did not perform up to his hype in this tournament. The Brit star player is a fat joke!

"Spain, like Germany, has only allowed 2 goals in this tournament. Unlike Germany who has scored 13 goals, Spain has only scored 6 goals. Again, I rest my case."

"The Netherlands have allowed 5 goals and scored 12 goals. Germany has allowed 2 goals and scored 13 goals. I rest my case. We are in agreement."

Nice statistics, but also include this:

Germany in the qualifications for this World Cup: 2 draws, the rest were victories
The Netherlands in the qualifications for this World Cup: Only victories

Germany played so far 5 games on the World Cup: four victories, one loss
Holland played 6 games on the World Cup: all victories.

Germany is a little too enthousiastic and are already thinking about playing against Holland on sunday......but they'll first have to beat the Spanish and that is going to be a lot harder than a game against Argentina or Australia. Argentina was nothing this year as the football genius (Messi) was not in his best shape.

Remarkable by the way.....about all the star players did not make it and were/are way out of normal shape: Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka, van Persie, Rooney, Torres, Eto'o, Drogba......among others.
Forl?n was a positive exception to this....however as of yesterday the highest possible for him this edition is 3rd place.
