They played with guts and could have won.
Coach Tabarez said in the press conference after the Ghana match that
the players "had to put what they had to put" to win that game. He
didn't mention out of politeness, but he clearly mean balls.

The Dutch can surely win.
Benny take note for your review--I think Forlan got hurt with
about 20 minutes left. He had a serious collision with a defender,
was very slow to get up, and didn't look well at all for at least five
minutes after that. And then he comes out with about five minutes
left and then they score!

Hardly!!! They are certainly even money at least against either of
those two. They still aren't playing up to their potential, and
Uruguay were fabulous today.
Actually I'm really looking forward to the third place match!

I didn't notice any offence, let a lone a red-card one, in the
build-up. Will have to find a way to re-watch the situation.
But apart from that, isn't everybody happy that Holland won? We want
a repeat of the '74 final, after all!
No, no, you can't e-mail me with the nono.

The only cheater on the pitch was dirty Van Bommel.
Would you please stop this nonsense?
Thanks for the show, Uruguay!
