Netherlands-France 4-1

Wow. What a great game to watch, esp. in the second half when France went on the attack and forced our team to up their game. Poor Henry though; he only had half a minute to savour his goal before Robben scored at the other end. Who'd have thunk it: Holland are through to the quarter finals, and they did it by beating two very strong teams.

They certainly have done, but it's funny how little credit they're willing to take for it in the interviews after the match. They all said much of it was down to Lady Luck, and that they hadn't played as well as in the match against Italy. Marco van Basten even found it necessary to remind the jubilant reporters that two years ago, they were sent packing in the semi finals; going through to the next round is good, but they're still a long way off from the ultimate prize.
