Bull**** - Swaini was good, but no that much.. Gomez was defentially man of this match ! Udi Kabudi is not an example, people say he is better than messi, so defentially better thatn swainnie and Gomez.
Gomez only scored because schweinsteiger gave him to assists for goal that even Udi Kabudi would have scored. schweinsteiger, definately man of the match.
Why there isn't any man of the match ???? I think Gomez should be ! or shwanshtaiger... But Gomez was better
I think the problem was playing Stekelenburg. The Dutch should've played Krul.
This match is easy to analyse and the result was completely expected by me. Holland were lucky to reach the final in the World Cup in South Africa by being on the opposite side of the draw from Germany who in any case were missing Mueller from cards in their semi-final against Spain. Once in the final the Dutch gave a poor impression as a result of their fouling tactics seemingly inspired by their coach, van Marwick. The need to foul speaks of the inadequacy of Dutch football and the loss to a moderate Danish side is confirmation of that. Elimination of Holland at the group stage in this competition would be an appropriate 'punishment' Germany have been the better side since 2010 and Schweinsteiger is now the best midfield player in the world and typically set up both goals against Holland with well-timed through passes. The rest of the teams in this current competition had better watch out for Germany and that includes Spain who without David Villa in their first match against Italy were relatively toothless.
Oh dear. Not good to be a rubber cheese eating clog wearer today, from the nation that inspired footballers all over the world with attacking grace, fluid movement and total focus comes, Nigel De Jong and Mark Van Bommel and Arjen 'The selfish' Robben. Sad demise. Been out dutched by the germans :(
ahahahha.i hope The Orange will draw but German is strong :)
Germans learned from Russian wastages with Poland, so Germans scored and kept the composure. Germany shall qualify for next round because they pace the ball SO WELL.
Germany all the way
and again HOLLAND loses! there are actually a great deal of surprises in this 2012 euro! cant believe one of t he favourites isn't sure to make it to the 2nd round!!
Dutch team is not overrated (at least according to the names of the players) I am very disappointed with their performance mostly because they were playing as if it was 0:0. Robben and Willems were the worst on the pitch and Sneijder was the only one trying to enhence the game and bring the ball forward. Not taking anything from the Germans...solid game, solid defending, deadly finishing, won everything in the air. I could have been even worse for the ``Oranjes``.
Holland not terrible but a certain striker should've buried their chances and it would have been a different outcome. However, that doesn't take away the fact that the Germans have a good defence and work well as a unit going forward and backwards. Unlike the Dutch team who were abysmal in defence and the Germans found it too easy to get past their defence. I think holland looked for that fancy pass to often and could've done better if they hoofed the ball up there a few times. Although, at least it is still not all over as anything can still happen in the final group game although, I expect Germany and Portugal to go through.
Holland they fail to revert they football system,they fail to attack with they are terrible wingers,they fail to possess the ball.
hey i spy dont forget podoski to
as it stands if germany beat denmark by 2 goals and holland beat portugal 3-0 then the dutch would go through .
bye bye dutch
