Mexico needs to win to go through, so no more defensive play, which means time for Holland to shine. :cool:

Out for a walk.
I want The Netherlands to absolutely annihilate every other team they face and win the World Cup. Nigel, break some legs on the way.

Hmmm though decision for me. Either continue shamelessly gloryhunting for team EU or support senor herrera.

This will be Mexico's 6th consecutive exit at the Round of 16 stage. Wow.

Mexico will try to break Holland's will by doing their game, Kicking the hell of every Holland player. Time to shine for Robben and Snejder but everything depends on the referee.

Robben deserves to win the world cup. He is a messi level player, cant believe people underrate him so much just cause he has a very reserved personality.

I think Holland 3-2. Robben will get a goal like first, RVP will get a goal like second. Will concede 2 and will grab late winner.

Let's see if Robben or Van Persie are still on fire

but I expect crappy football from both teams with a lot of goals

By now, Mexico's coach should have figured out that you should sit deep and play the waiting game vs Holland's 532. Don't take the ball and play high line, cause you WILL be scored on, and once you concede, the floodgates have to open and that's exactly what you don't want to happen.

If they will sit deep tho, we will see an extremely boring first 45 minutes, neither team will want to play and ball will circulate in midfield for ages. Holland will switch to a 433 with Depay at HT then, which will mean a much more open game.

The conditions will be extreme (35 degrees celcius + 90% humidity), so conserving energy is a must. It happened vs Chile, let them tire theirselves for 75 minutes then hit them.

Will be a good game, all games have been.

Also all teams have been extremely fit. The only team that was truly worn out at the backhand of all their games was Italy :-)lol:) as far as I'm aware.
