So unfortunate to see the Dutch forget all about their usual style of football and turn to karate; they can do so much better than what they showed during this Worldcup, despite arriving into the final... which is a tremendous achievement !  :( :( :(

Spain are the worthy champions though !!
What an enormous heap of talent united in one team  :o :o

Luc, that has been the main criticism in NL for a while now, that the way they played was effective but not like NL "should play" or particularly attractive. It is very hard to please the Dutch that are stuck in history and only remember the Ajax style of playing from yeas back..... ;)

Some said the Germans played like us during this tournament and we played like the Germans used to do. The fact of the matter is they could not keep up with the pace of Spain when the game started and then they resorted to very ugly aggresive defence. Not something to be proud of. Some "experts" said that several teams were not well prepared to play at higher altitude among which the Dutch and therefore couldn't keep up with the Spanish pace. Ah well, todays misery is tomorrows history. We will get over it....
And yes, Spain was better overall during the game so deserved to win. Or like Johan Cruijff said, Spain in the form of Barcelona.... And didn't the Dutch have a connection with Barcelona and influenced the way Barcelona plays nowadays? So maybe we defeated ourselves....  :-\
