Netherlands SSSSCCCORRRRESSSS…oh well…Actually it was a Danish player who scored the own goal. So strange!!! Simon Poulsen tried to head the ball forward and inexplicably the ball went to the wrong direction. So the Orange takes the lead really early in the second half. 46 minutes on the clock.

Is it because Robben is missing? Netherlands have not looked that stronger to keep the favorites tag for this competition. Especially not after the display Germany had yesterday. And on the top of that Denmark even though have been defending they have look good.

72 minutes and what a chance to Netherlands to kill the game!! The sub Elia just a few minutes into the game and already creating impact with is tricky moves and delivery. Van Bommel was at the other end trying to finish inside the box, but Sorensen conceded a corner-kick with his save.

81 minute and Sneijder’s swinging inside stroke the ball that hit the top of the bar. Almost 2-0 with that effort before Kuyt just taps in for the second goal of the Dutch. The game it is going to end with not a lot of chances or supremacy from any of the teams.
