World Cup Update - time for a new champion

A thrilling pair of semi-finals this week folks! Holland showed that an organized team can break down any solid defending eventually with their steadfast dismantling of Uruguay. Highlight of the game has to be the opening goal by the Dutch skipper, Giovanni van Bronckhurst, who rifled one of the finest WC goals ever! Despite a good fight, the Uruguayans couldn't grapple back into the game and lost 3-2. The Dutch now go on to a 3rd final and face 1st time finalists, and a lot of people's pre-tournament faves, Spain, who did just enough to beat a talented young German team 1-0 behind a great headed goal by Barcalona's Carles Puyol. Should be a great final on Sunday, and we are guaranteed a first time winner, so PLENTY of added extra incentive....GO HOLLAND!
