    Holland for mine. Could go either way though. Looks like the highlight match of the second round, unless Italy fail to beat the Czechs and finish second to Ghana, in which case they'll play Brazil.

    Wasn't Cote D'Ivoire a French colony?

    Yes but the name Ivory Coast comes from the British.

    Arrogant? Who? Me? should have used the smilie, though

    But seriously...what today's match showed is that both teams are incredibly hard to beat, and that the Dutch are in very good shape physically. With the English on a crash course in fatal lethargy, I seriously believe The Netherlands will come out on top should they meet in the QF's. Portugal and Ecuador up first, though.

    Yes we shouldn't get ahead of ourselves, however I think we'll both get through and will meet. I can't pick a winner to be honest, I'll venture that it'll be pretty close though.

    hmm Holland really have the hardest draw don't they?

    In the group of death, finish joint top, lose out on goal difference and have to play Portugal in the 2nd round...

    Oh well, I guess you have to beat the best to be the best...

    Was the ref on a pay-per-yellow-card, and a tidy bonus for every red card in the Cote d'Ivorie andSerbia & Montenegro match?

    Really though, where was Cote d'Ivorie's finishing? I mean two of their goals came from penalties, and one was a header? That is pretty poor, despite their many chances, even if they were missing Didier Drogba.

    And was Serbian defender Dudic trying to win a contract with a NBA side or perhaps the Real Madrid basketball team?
