If the Dutch lost, van Persie would take lion share of the fault
Costa Rica have made so many people happy this tournament!
Its the lets overrate van gaal for any meaningless thing he does. Its funny people in here were sure it was a 90 minute affair for the dutch, so Ill take a guess and say he wasnt really good today, so they found that one thing that is pretty circumstancial.
He's done great, changing keepers before pks its more of a cabala than anything though.
Hats off to Costa Rica, fought like lions and came really far
Louis van Gaal is something else though..
Semis with this squad.. Unreal.
no it's genius ... the purpose of this substitution is to boost Holland's player mentality, that's why they can score 4 perfect penalties (very accurate shots) and make a Goalkeeper more confident
It would have been so beautiful had they won. The Dutch would hate them for 50+ years.
^and costa rica had their only offensive action in the 117 minute or so.
They barely crossed the halfway line
Nah. We even had a clear pk (and Im saying clear pk cause the ref called one for us on the edge of the dutch area just a minute later)*at the start of the 2nd half. We also had a dangerous corner there and a couple of other plays.
Team that wins is the team that deserves. Holland won and they deserved it, had we won we would have. Simple.
[/QUOTE]. Dont break your head trying to think "we attack more so we deserved more", your dangerous attacks all came from only one source which was Robben running in the final minutes of each half, getting a foul and from that foul crossing fingers Sneijder hit it well in some way. Each of your other attacks ended in a) clear offside b) easy head clearance or c) we took the ba from your players. Honestly I expected something more after HT from Holland, our game was clear as day. I dunno more involvement from Sneijder taking shots from outside, doing 1-1 fast plays to break the defense, putting Huntelaar on earlier with RVP.
I dunno saving a sub to change the gk to save pks tells me we weren't the only ones expecting to take the game to pks.
They won and its deserved. Neither them or us cheated to get the result, so yeah simple ball don't lie logic. Congrats and good luck.
