Sorry for the delay, there was a bit of a party here last night.... so sue me. As you know by now, the Dutch ran wild from the 44th minute on, exacting a measure of sweet revenge for the World Cup 2010 final loss. I will be honest, I did not know what to expect from this new variation of Oranje. New players, new set, new holy crap do not fall behind them in this tourney because speed and more speed comes off the bench.
