Yay 1-0

Holland- Japan 1-0
53' 1-0 Sneijder
Happy that Holland won but it wasn't a great match. Japan played well in the defense which resulted in very few chances in the first half. Second half Holland played a bit better and had the good fortune that a hard shot from Wesley Sneijder wasn't handled well by the Japanese goalkeeper. Dutch substitute Affelay had 2 good chances to double the score but this time the keeper did his job. Although Dutch fans like to see the team play beautiful football I think there's more of a realization these days that in the end the result is all that matters. In the past Holland often played sparkling football in the beginning only to have a bad match later on and go out of the tournament. Hopefully we'll see the Dutch team improving every match. ;)
