The future is bright – the future is ORANGE.
Louis Van Gaal – the new manager of Manchester United – has masterminded the shock of the tournament and one of THE GREAT RESULTS of this or any World Cup.
HOLLAND 5 SPAIN 1
What a match and what a performance.
The heroes of this Dutch masterclass were Robin Van Persie and Arjen Robben who both scored twice and at times were unplayable
An unbelievable opening strike by RVP pegged back Xavi Alonso’s opening goal from the penalty spot.
But Van Persie’s spectacular long range header was only the start of an unbelievable fightback.
Arjen Robben put Holland in front shortly after the break.
Stefan de Vrij made it three.
Van Persie made it 4-1
And Robben showed his class and his poise to wrap up a humiliating defeat for the defending champions.
It could have been far worse for Spain who were outclassed outplayed and outfought in every department.
To cap off their embarrassment Fernando Torres missed a sitter for Spain in injury time.
It’s a result that sends shock waves around the world – and sets up the prospect of a possible meeting between Spain and host nation Brazil in the next round – if Spain can recover and qualify from Group B
