    Apart from the first couple of games, yes. Hasn't been able handle the heat at all in addition to not really being good.

    It's been weird with Van Persie - he's always been an intelligent, fluid, complete player who is so much more than a pure finisher and yet in this tournament he seems to be remarkably limited and struggles to get into games when he's not being played in by others.

    To be fair to him he was getting in good positions in the quarter-final and could on another night have had a hat trick, but it's certainly fair to say that with the exception of his brilliant first game or two, we've not seen anything like the best of him.

    How has Furball not brought up Robben disappearing in big games yet? Been non-existant so far tonight bar a few trademark dives.

    Argentina's hustle, pressing and defensive shape have been exceptional so far. Plenty of time left of course but at this point the Dutch don't seem to have any real idea how to break them down.

    Don't worry, he'll probably score the winner.

    I feel like there's a really good game of football trapped here that's trying desperately to get out.
