So Holland are through, as if there was ever any doubt. Robben got back on the field. They surely must like their chances against Slovakia. Unfortunately, Brazil will be the likely quarterfinal opponent. But did I mention Robben got back on the field?

The Dutch depth in attack is just stunning. They have a world class center midfielder who has to play out of position to make room for the other world class center midfielder. The out of position world class center midfielder usually gets subbed off to make room for a world class up & coming talent. The world class striker has been a little off form so they sub on another world class striker. And the best player on the team is just coming off injury and tuning up to start against Brazil in the quarters.

Yep, I'm ready to call it: It'll be a Holland - Germany final. 1974 redux. Revenge.

You read it here first.
