They Were The Best; They Deserved It All The Way…

Of course disappointed, but what can I say… They deserved it 100%. They worked harder, they had the better chances, they were the better team, they made the goals that were needed.

Guus (my county fellow man, also a “Achterhoeker”), Varsseveld will be proud again.

Holland – Russia: 1 – 3

Chapeau. Mr. Guus Hiddink.

    Do I detect a small note of gloating here from a (former) Russian?

    Ha, my Russian friend ;-)

    Yep, they beat us on all fronts. The general opinion, aka the professional soccer commentators, among others Cruyff in Holland and the soccer players them self admitted that they came short, conditionally, in the last 30 minutes of the extra time.

    …and…the Russians have a great forward, Andrei Arshavin who couldn’t be controlled, whatever the Dutch tried… He was slippery as hell… A great player, I enjoyed him playing / scoring (although it was on the cost of the Dutch)
