And when I thought things couldn’t get any better after Holland’s 3-0 victory against the Italians …. a crushing 4-1 victory against France earlier today at Euro 2008, with each goal even better than the one before. The 1-0 by Kuyt was nice, the 2-0 by van Persie was preceded by some incredible footwork by van Nistelrooy and a blazing run by Robben (here are the Dutch radio commentators!).
The 3-0 was really the backbreaker, an impossible shot within a minute of France scoring the 2-1. The 4-1 by Sneijder was really the icing on the cake. All the video highlights are here. So now they’re through to the quarterfinals already, with one game to play in group C, the group of death. It was really a group of death, but not for the Dutch!
And here is a look at the Oranje Legioen (Orange Legion) of Dutch supporters in Switzerland, the best soccerfans in the world!!
