No they had not. That was big news here in the Netherlands. Not surprisingly, considering the history.

So this only adds to the discussion whether or not you can train on these kind of things.

I think this was a victory of team spirit

this is the first time I can remember since 1988 that the dutch team looked like a real team

they're probably even more a group of friends than back in 1988 (when we won the Euro Cup), but we had more quality back then

in this tournament anything can happen
and somehow we're still there

Yeah, I liked the spirit. In the post-match interviews they said they all had the feeling/intention of "we are going to win this shoot-out!"

*still thinks the 1998 team had lots of quality too*

Is it then true after all, what they say of the sixteen-year-gaps?

holland have the potential now to go on and win the whole thing. but i still say that anyone who wants to win will have to beat czech republic.

as for england, it makes me laugh reading the english press. arrogant is a word that springs to mind. CAN NO ONE ELSE SEE THEY ARE A BAD SIDE!!!! lots of people, including in here were tipping them to win, which i find unbelievable.

they beat 2 bad teams and all of a sudden they are the best team in the world, but the fact is they couldnt beat 2 good teams, ie france and portugal, come to think of it when is the last time they did beat a good team?

anyway, czech - holland final for me

i really cant see this dutch team beating portugal... ( unless it goes to penalties).

lets see hollands run - Germany was the better side in germany vs holland. Croatia almost beat them. Against latvia , 2 goals were very dubious. Sweden hit the post twice in a 0-0 draw.

czech Vs portugal final - i think portugal has it to go all the way..they should do away with out of form figo

except that we didn't even play Croatia
and that though we played horribly against germany there wasn't one side better than the other
we were twice as good as latvia
and hit the post ourself in the first 90 minutes against sweden and did play a bit better
I tend to agree

well, I don't think we'll win the euro cup
but how this tournament has been going we have as good a chance as any team left

the czechs are the only team who have been consistently good
but one mediocre game against any of the team left could cost them the championship

so I'm not betting on anyone

infact they can...they just need 2 good games..if they beat portugal somehow..winning the revenge game should be less difficult comparitively

beating portugal would be very tough though..
