netherlands-uruguay: 3-2

They've done it, Oranje have reached the finals! For the first time in 32 years, they've got a shot at the Cup.

A pity Uruguay was given an opportunity to score a second goal in stoppage time, but as Van Marwijk has just said, it's the final score that counts and The Netherlands have done what they set out to do, to take this final hurdle.

Who will they meet in Johannesburg on the 11th? I'll be rooting for Germany tomorrow.

What an excellent match! I was so happy to see them win.
However you and I will be on opposing sides tomorrow. I can't possibly go against My beloved Espana.

In truth, I don't care who they'll play in Sunday's match. Spain have been the bookies favourites this tournament, and they field a strong team...but when it comes to football, us Dutch have always had strong rivalry with the Germans, and that's why a Netherlands-Germany match would be my dream final.

Thank you!

I'm not only pleased they won, but pleased they played their best match at this tournament yet. If they keep playing like this, and don't go back to being sloppy, they've got a real chance to write footballing history.

Thank you, they'll need it! I mean, in football, as in everything else, you'll make your own luck obviously, but if they can get some from elsewhere, that'd be mighty welcome -- the other two contenders didn't get where they are by sheer hard work alone, either.
