    Are you sure you are not confusing Portugal with the Netherlands?
    I consider Portugal to be the most unsporty team ever. Always drama about nothing, using all dirty tricks to win. I saw it with the last world cup and this world cup, and not only in that match with the Netherlands.

    I agree about Heitinga in the match with Spain. He was playing dirty the whole time, and I was shouting "replace him, replace him!" Also sneijder had his bad moments I was suprised of. But to say the netherlands are just as unsporty or even worse than Portugal, that's something I never can agree with. Unless they prove elsewise in the future..

    About the match, I almost fell asleep in first half because nothing happened. Teams were too equal. About the yellow cards: Netherland always get them many.

    Spain won with 0-1 in the last minutes of the extra time.

    Personally I think the match was frustrating. Wrong decisons of the referee, too many yellow cards (most of them were deserved), not the game play I expected from Spain as well from the NLDs, and then I was so annoyed by the Dutch player Heitinga. Yet both teams gave the best they could at that time, and Spain was the better team. I of course wish we would have won, but being second of the world is still a great accomplishment. What else can I say then: Well done the Netherlands, and congrats to Spain!! Applaud for them both.

    I don't know if you have noticed, but it looks to me that Paul always chooses the right box.
    Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    They have discovered that Paul likes bright colors like red and yellow. And the red of Holland isn't bright enough next to the red and yellow of spain. And the logo on their flag looks like a shrimp XD

    Yeah, but Paul only have predicted Germany games so far, so he may be wrong this time.

    Lol, all those theories.

    When we played to Brazil, it was Brazil who made the first goal. But we won nevertheless. I think that's the big pluspoint from the NLDs, that they don't give up, also when it doesn't go that well. They keep doing their best until the end and don't loose their spirit.

    It think it's going to be a tough game for both of them. Spain is certainly good and has in my eyes an equal chance to win.

    If Holland wants to win they have to score the first goal.

    Playoffs have shown that Spain is able to score only 1 goal.

    Yeah, but even though Holland went to the finals before, but they didn't win. So i think that they are equal to eachother. But I think that Spain has a better defense and attack than Holland. For they can only attack and their keeper is bad with penaltys and corners. So that is a + for Spain. So I wish Holland a lot of good luck, cause I think they need it

    Hmm, but the Netherlands made it to the finals before. This is the first time for Spain. So there goes your wonder theory.

    But those things don't say anything. Spain and the Netherlands have both a good chance to win.
