Heh, find it funny how people still think netherland is so much better then spain... it was exactly the same before germany game :) Thing is, there is _only_ one way to break spains game and this is with pressuring on their defenders when they have a ball... but you cant play that way whole 90+ minutes... usualy teams against barcelona manage for like 20-30min at best and then its whole same game as we are used to, spain passing and other team defending. Only one team managed to keep up with barcelona and destroying this passing game for whole 90min and that was estudiantes in last years world club finals... but then there where overtime and they lost :)

Sunday game can go like this: If Spain scores early, we can see lots of goals specialy in netherlands goal. If Netherlands scores early, Spain will put extra pressure and im sure they will score and we can see overtimes, only real chance Netherland have to win is to score first late in game (lets say around 60-70min) and then defend for the rest of the game... Generaly i think Spain have like 2.5:1 odds to win it, they have better teamwork, they are more paitent, they have slightly better defence, much better midfild and they are about the same on attack, but since spain have better midfild they wont see ball much and only solution will be counterattacks like for germany.

That's a way too detailed predicition to be true. I call BS. :p

Let's just see how it goes on sunday. So far Spain has had a lot of trouble scoring, where as the Dutch are only getting better at it.

:p

True. :whistle: This is going to be a lot more different than the last game, both teams like to have the ball. Spain should dominate though.

Untrue.

Netherlands will simply TRY to get the ball but will be unable to and will resort to their classic way of play: counterattack.

Spain will treat the ball like a mother treats her first born baby son, hogging it all the ****ing time.

Spain will score and thats it.

0-1

Nothing wrong with that. If they continue being lucky, Spain will finish second. :p

Spain of course.

What are the rest of you on crack?

sorry, think I suffer from common sense, and looking at the way Spain is playing now, its typical Dutch fashion really, touch passes, over dominant ball control and a fast paced game, this was obvious with the Germany game, they forced Germany to play on their level in terms of speed and ball control

Octopus Paul has spoken, Spain will win this World Cup.

I'm going to guess a 2-1 result, for Spain of course.

I'll give you the header, but an own goal, really? Luck has been on their side, especially Sneijder. I don't want to see "this" Dutch team win, they only care about winning, doesn't matter how they do it.

It was not ruled an own goal, so it still counts as a legit goal for the Netherlands.

I've lashed all my betting winnings from this World Cup on Spain.

I just don't see many teams being able to get past Spain's midfield. If Robben is on fire tonight (although he is still carrying a niggle) then Holland have a chance though.
