    Yes you read that correctly; The Final match!
    Holland and Brazil are obviously the best teams left in this cup. I think either one of them is going to win the cup...which means we are going to watch the final this afternoon!

    I hope the score would be something like 3-2 for an interesting match

    Nah. Dutch do not belong on same pitch with Brazil. Dutch are way overrated. You really think Dutch better than Spain or Argentina? Would not even beat Germany and might have trouble with Ghana! Uruguay would wipe the pitch with them. I do agree Grolsch is way better than Heineken!

    I may have to eat above words, but we'll see. I saw it as an own goal by Brazil!

    Mea culpa, mea culpa! O grandissima culpa. I eat words for lunch! My own. Brazil does not belong on same pitch, at least right now!

    Those two teams are obviously not the best two teams at the world cup. Not even close. So now we'll have the final match as you put it in the semi final: Spain vs. Argentina.

    But it was an interesting match. Lucky, lucky Dutch.

    Awesome second half by Holland. Terrible defence in the first half. Second half was pretty italian-like play by holland. In the end we deserve our victory.

    Brazil is a much better team than the Netherlands but they completely collapsed mentally after the 1-1. In the end, Brazil can only blame themselves for giving it away.

    That said, any normal ref and half of the Dutch side would not have finished this game. It's unbelievable how Van Bommel didn't even get a yellow.

    Too bad. It would be quite hilarious if Uruguay, who are hot favourite to win the other match, beat Holland through a Suarez goal.

    I agree with you there, ref was a bit weird. Not sure who kicked Fabiano in the first half but that was a blatant off-the-ball foul and should have been red.

    Nevertheless, Brazil have no discipline. When they start losing they start throwing their toys. Happens every time. The better team won on this day.

    The same can be said about Brazil though. That first left back could have received about 5 yellow cards. The intensity of Brazil's kicks only added as they collapsed mentally.

    And Brazil, unlike the dutch, have been doing this (though not as hard as in this game) for the whole tournament, so they can't really complain.
