Looking forward to Netherlands x Brazil. Though I didnt think the NL did all that great against Slovakia (Slovakia had many chances to score but was too sloppy to get it done, sorry Slovakians...) I believe the NL will have a lot of confidence as they did not lose one single match until now so they can certainly put up a good show. If the NL plays the same way they have been playing Brazil wins without a question. Otherwise Brazil will struggle and the Dutch wins? I cant wait to find out... Go Brazil!Good luck to both teams!

"We played well for the first half-hour. We were good at the start of the second half too, but we failed to add a second goal. Maarten Stekelenburg then saved us twice at a very important time," Bert van Marwijk, Netherlands coach.
