Yeah 2-0

Holland-Denmark 2-0
46' 1-0 Simon Poulson (og)
85' 2-0 Dirk Kuyt
Holland started a bit nervous in their first match of the World Championships. Denmark had a decent game plan and that entailed not letting Holland play their favorite football. Those two things added up, making the first half relatively uneventful. One minute in the second half all that changed. A shot from Van Persie was miraculously deflected in the Danish own goal - severely upsetting the Danish game plan. With spaces opening up (since Denmark had to get the equalizer) Holland started playing better and getting chances. Five minutes before the end Dirk Kuyt had an easy tap in after Elia hit the post. The latter was very impressive as a substitute. 3 points for Holland, but a long way to go.
