4-1.

not particularly deserved, but this tournament sure seems to belong to the dutch. Everything seems to work out for them. Quite a bit of luck in those boots too, would be fair to say.

And another great game to watch. France wasn't bad but I guess you can't do much when the opponent is this good. I think Dutch or Portugal will win the tournament.

Maybe...I haven't watched Spain games yet, but I did read they're very good.

Can anyone tell me what that Gomis guy is doing on the French team? He is clearly not anywhere near the level it takes to play in such a tournament. France has so many top players, and Domenech chooses to bring on a player whose first touch is amateurish at best, has no pace, and only got 1 in 20 passes right.

Hopefully the French Football association will finally fire Domenech now.

Spanish and the Dutch tend to have these flying starts to major tournaments.

The Dutch tend to self-destruct, and the Spanish tend to not have the mental toughness to see these things through.

Let's wait and see before the coronations begin, the nations with the better mental toughness usually prevail, the Spanish even have a fraction of Italy's 2006 toughness or Germany's almost all the time, they will do well. And if the Dutch can focus on beating their opponents rather than gatting into petty squabbles with themselves, they too can do well.

Good games today, almost all the 2nd games actually have been significantly better than the opening games.

I wouldn't be surprised if Domenech's crystal ball told him to play Thuram up front as a lone striker and Henry in goal for the next game.

The unity and determination of the Dutch team seem completely different from anything I've seen from them before, though. They seem strong in all departments.

What a match! 4-1!
In 2 back-to-back games the Dutch team scored 7 goals against the current world champion and the runner up (and conceded only 1 goal).

Indeed, I remember being at the second Slane concert and they showed Ireland taking out the Netherlands of the 2002 World Cup qualifiers.

Wonder if the Dutch will 'throw' their next match in order to avoid meeting up with France or Italy down the line?
Or maybe just sit out their top players with good reason...
