While Holland has played more like a team in this World Cup than Brazil, this game was all about Arjen Robben. Robben cut up Brazil's left side, leaving them no option but to give away fouls. Fouls that lead to yellow cards, substitutions, a red card and goals.
Brazil sacrificed Júlio Baptista, substituted after hacking into Robben for much of the game. Then Felipe Melo earns a straight red for stomping on Robben.
Brazil showed some individual brilliance, but the Dutch held together as a team.
Can Holland go all the way?
Surely Australia need taller and stronger players if it is one day to emulate the Dutch formula. Wither AFL.
