alas

Alas it was not meant to be.  The Dutch team lost to Russia in the Quarterfinals.  The legend of Guus Hiddink lives on as he takes yet another team onwards to the half finale. 

Van der Sar was once again the hero of the evening as he defended the Dutch goal against the onslaught of the Russian players. But even the world's best keeper couldn't keep the ball out of that goal forever.  

Perhaps it was grief, but I got the impression that the Dutch team was just not on their best game this evening. In any case, they did not seem to be in top form.  I still think it was a brave effort and the team gets kudos from this "allochtoon".
