Netherlands-Rumania 2-0

A good result. It took them a while to create a few chances, but then when they did, they didn't disappoint. So Holland and Italy are through to the quarter finals, and who knows, if they keep playing like this, they may even meet again in the semis.

We kind of got the impression that they weren't trying too hard to start with - it would have been fun if Romania had qualified rather than Italy - but then got bored waiting for the Romanians to do something and decided to stick a couple of goals in.

Actually, they were trying quite hard in the first half, but Rumania just kept the ranks firmly closed. They tried the same tactic in the 2nd half, but then after Huntelaar had scored the first goal and the Rumanians became more desperate, they opened up the back more.

Still, I daresay that if Van Basten had fielded the A team, rather than the reserves, they would have broken up the Rumanian defense rather more quickly.

I wonder who they'll encounter in the quarter finals - Sweden or Russia...and which of those two will provide the better spectacle.
