    & on cue, van Persie sets up Sneijder. Maybe I'll just shut my big fat face.

    Keeper might'be done a little better tho.

    Dutch the only big European team with an unblemished record so far, assuming they hang on here. Can't say they've been incredibly impressive though, just getting the job done.

    Yeah, hopefully it'll be the opposite of their Euro 08 performance when they started like a train, but got Arshavined in the quarters.

    Cameroon-Denmark game should be sick now. Both need the win badly.

    Got Netherlands in the sweep at work so pleased to see them doing well. Always rooted for them after us tbh, especially after France 98.

    Oooh, a goal. Created entirely through Danish incompetence.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: everybody is ****.

    Too easy for Denmark. Good early ball from Rommedahl, one thing I've noticed that's contributed to the lack of goals is that wide men are generally taking forever to get the ball in the box and the strikers don't know when to make their runs.

    Last five mintues there was ridiculous. Could have been three goals scored in that time alone.

    Nah, got a bit of the ball. Didn't even appeal overly, did they?

    Genuine prank-defending there from Cameroon, rarely a good idea to show your man inside when there's a huge open space directly in front of the goal there. Great finish though. Rommedahl a World Cup specialist it seems.

    Tomasson could've ended it there.

    Looks more and more like Pike out of Dad's Army as the years go by tho.

    Actually, yer Danes quite the Dad's Army themselves. Tomasson must be nearly 80, pretty sure I was still at uni when he was playing (badly) for Newcastle and Gronkjaer and Rommedahl no spring chickens either.

    Another goal would make a huge difference to Denmark's chances of qualification- I wonder if they realise. The commentators don't.
