The worst thing the dutch team can do now is to underestimate their opponent. You don't get this far in a tournament only because you are lucky (even though they where REALLY lucky Ghana missed the penalty shot).
If you underestimate your opponent in the semi finals of a world cup, you don't deserve to win.
I still think Holland will make it to the finals, though.
Yes you're right there. I think underestimating our opponents was what eliminated us last time. After surviving the group of death with stunning victories, we had to face Russia of which everyone thought they would get their asses handed to them. Then we lost 3-1 after extra time =/

Remember that Octopus oracle? It predicted that Germany wins against England and also predicted that Germany wins against Argentina. And now? It predicted SPAIN will win against Germany!
Fuck, we are doomed. :'(
Haha, yeah I heard about that octopus. Apparently he predicted 80% of Germany's matches right the last EC, so this is indeed a bad omen for you guys. But he could be wrong you know ;)

Holland - Germany would be the ultimate final match, but the Mannschaft showed us that they're very strong. Spain is less strong, but they're also quite good. Other thing is that Holland still hasn't shown what it's got.
I think we stand more of a chance against Spain than against Germany, but Holland - Germany is simply the best final imaginable so I wouldn't mind having that one. We'll probably lose in the end, but oh well... at least we got some historical sports moments we can look back to and say that "we were there" ^^
