    Nope and think of some of the unlikely sides that have made it over the years.

    I really wanted Chile and Colombia to beat them but the 7-1 is the defining event of this tournament so kind of glad they got through now.

    Genuine question; Does Netherlands have no-one better than Dirk Kuyt to play in that position?
    Isnít it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too? Ė Douglas Adams

    Showed early promise, got thrashed in a couple of big games, and finished 4th. Sounds like Arsenal's season

    There is Janmaat, but he didn't do much when he got the chance.

    Speaking of Dutch side backs, Daley Blind must be a candidate for most overpriced post-World Cup transfer. Hoping Man Utd jump on him

    Initially Van Gaal tried Janmaat (not that bad imho), and later even Paul Verhaegh (uggghhhhh). Dirk Kuijt was a plan B. The original idea was to use Gregory van der Wiel (Paris Saint Germain), but he's injured.
    Madness. Exhilarating. Magical. Netherlands have crossed the line in an unbelievable 13.5 overs.
    It's like watching a Gayle from each end. And when one Gayle gets out.. Another Gayle comes in...
