Holland v Brazil World Cup 2010
July 2, 2010 - Kick off 15.00 GMT
The first quarter final game of the 2010 World Cup takes place in Port Elizabeth and threatens to be the most enthralling contest of the lot. Brazil and the Netherlands have conjured up some memorable World Cup contests in the past, although it‘s the Selecao who had the upper hand in 1994 and 1998, something which we expect to continue on Monday. Dunga‘s team breezed past Chile on Monday to reach the last eight and seem like a strong professional team who are justifying their number one world ranking.
Luis Fabiano, Robinho and Kaka should be a handful for a suspect Dutch defence, while Bert Van Marwijk‘s team do seem to rely too heavily on the fitness and form of Arjen Robben. While he and Wesley Sneijder are both capable of playing that killer ball to Robin Van Persie, the Netherlands really haven‘t lived up their billing of being a vibrant and attacking team. Perhaps they have been conserving energy and will burst into life, although based on form, this match points to yet another South American victory.
