Holland Vs Russia


Recommended Posts

This should be a humdinger if they both play to their strength of attacking football.

Will RVP start ? Robben ?

Will Russia unlock the Dutch defence with their fast countering ?

MVB versus Hiddink, should be a classic (you watch, it'll be a drab 0-0 now :blink: )

It really was a beautiful move, and totally deserved. Great finished from little Roman

Russia are in front ::clap2::

I know they have been lacking for possession in this game, but is anyone else surprised that van Basten has left Robben on the bench, and shot all three of his subs already?

good game, russia were quality.

I think we saw two counter attacking sides, and given the dutch's bigger reputation the onus was on them to be the side that tries to be proactive with the ball, and in changing their style they lost the game.

Russia deserved the victory, should have won 3:1 in normal time. Hiddink is the true special one at international football. When you need Robben the best, he mange to get himself injured in training, just like those years with us, good thing he's no longer with us.

My thoughts exactly. Holland look good so far but I wouldn't get too carried away just yet. I remember everyone waxing lyrical about Argentina at the last World Cup and they went out in the Quarter-Finals. It will be interesting to see how they do when they come up against a side that doesn't let them play as much as Italy and France have done and pressurise them on the ball. We also haven't seen how they've reacted to going a goal down yet.
