    What a win by the Dutch. How did they manage that?

    Brazil showing what happens if you don't put the game beyond doubt when dominating the game.

    ESPN just showed a replay and everyone can't stop laughing:

    Who is #6 for the Dutch? #13 for Brazil was on the ground his foot touched #6 who was standing still, and #6 jumped UP IN THE AIR and then fell down screaming.

    Physically impossible.

    So hilarious - I can't believe people expect that to be taken seriously.

    He had at least 3 in the last 5 minutes that he could easily have been booked for.

    Yep, it's a cliche, but a game is never safe whilst it's a one-goal lead, but the Dutch were brilliant in the latter part of that match, real resolve.

    Good on 'em, like Brazil, but they win it so much, and unless Ghana win it, that old chestnut about Brazil being the only team to win it out of their own continent will be over.

    I think #6 is Van Bommel, the guy they're talking about that managed to avoid a yellow despite his best attempts.

    Yeah pretty sure that the Germans and the Dutch have just swapped teams and not told anyone.

    He has nothing to show for it, but it was Robben's game. What a man!

    Amazing how quickly things change.

    Thought they were dire in the second half, totally lost their discipline and created nothing.
