I was unimpressed with the quality of football played today. Overall, the winners were the more enterprising team. The Dutch rather engineered their own loss. There were too many cynical, dumb challenges by the men in orange. (They deserved most of the bookings they received. And the high boot challenge on Iniesta should have been straight red.) That said, the Spanish are very skilled divers.
Not a memorable game. Some decent goalkeeping at both ends. But a pretty crap game all around. Very disappointing stuff.
