Viva Holanda 3-2

Holland - Uruguay 3-2
18' 1-0 Van Bronckhorst
41' 1-1 Forlan
70' 2-1 Sneijder
73' 3-1 Robben
92' 3-2 Pereira
Woohoo. What a game. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. Great goal from van Bronckhorst, maybe the most beautiful goal of the championship. Forlan equalized out of nowhere just before halftime. Second half Holland knocked in goals by Sneijder and Robben who are so dangerous as attacking players. Pereira made me a nervous wreck by scoring in extra time. Phew. I remember as a kid watching the finals of 1974 and 1978 although the latter is more vivid to me, and when they lost to Argentina in extra time I went to my room and cried. But Argentina is out, so maybe we can give the Germans some payback for 1974. Sunday - the Final.
