I would have thought we would have done worse, or at least, equalizing against the reigning World Champion…but a 3 – 0 victory against Italy? This is not very good for my overall Euro 2008 DG Tournement betting score. I haven’t made a single point… (my bets were Romania-France: 0-2, Netherlands-Italy:1-1)

Not that I am not very happy with the Dutch result. I think it is incredible and a relieve to see such a nice match, but as said I wouldn’t have thought Holland would be in for it against such great Italian players like Luca Toni, Gennaro Gattuso, Del Pierro, etc.
With the current standings in Group C, this will only increase the chance on some great next matches. Italy (definitely), Romania and France will have to win to still make a chance to the next round and I hope that Holland won’t slow down.
I am not a dedicated soccer fan. I only follow the national team games, but in my soccer rulebook the first Dutch goal was offside (UEFA’s statement supports the referee).
I can’t wait until next Friday when we will meet the French in the next match…
