A celebration we've long await, bringing back the joy and tears 4 years ago. This time, again, we experience something different, and expect the unexpected. An action that's all about strength, stamina, speed, analyze... and did some beautiful footwork to bring the Adidas Jabulani into the back of the net. YES! The South Africa's FIFA World Cup 2010!!
For me, this championship is really thrilling. Usually, you can differentiate which team is stronger depends on the players, team history and the team manager. I'll tell you what. Everything is a lie when they're playing on the pitch. Even the lucks and referees can decide a game. It's not how a star player's experience or killing act or what, it's about the spirit and the best you can perform. Really!~
If you ask me which team I curse, I'll tell you... there's none. All the teams that qualifying for this final round, means they're working really hard. They deserve to gain the respect from all the people of the world.
About the team I support the MOST... Netherlands.
But here it's quite pity to herd that Netherlands took the runner-up. But for me, they're trying the best, doing the best and expecting the best. Love those spirit the team have.
The Netherlands are not always at their best at big tournaments but this time they've make a difference with a lot of creativity in midfield and across the front line. Creative players like Robin van Persie, Wesley Sneijder and Arjen Robben stand up and be counted at this World Cup. When it doesn't work with creativity there is always Dirk Kuyt, the workhorse of the team.
And that, had gain more respect to to him, Dirk Kuyt~
- tiredness running
- play logically(do what he should do)
- trying hard to get the ball back to possession(even form GK)
- surprise sudden attack
- good try for troubling opponent's GK
- VERY HARDWORKING!!!!
+ Deserve to be the 1st choice Goalkeeper of oranje due to his consistency - Stekelenburg.
+ Clinical defence by Heitinga and Mathijsen, important clearance and tackle.
+ De Jong is a short but though midfielder! He gave all his best shot on stopping opponent's possession and gain in back.
+ some technical dribbling from Robben to confused the opponent, 'NOS' running and dangerous cross from the outside the box.
+ killing spot kick from Sneidjer, shoot from distance, smashing shot to win a dramatic match.
And very happy to found out a future talent like Eljero Elia, Van der Wiel, Di Maria from Argentina, Thomas Muller form Germany and Valter Birsa from Slovenia. Surely they can be the bright star in the future.
Meanwhile, there's some team I'm impress by their playing for trying to land the bast place in World Cup. Ghana, Ivory Coast, Germany, Japan, Korea Republic, Mexico, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, USA and Uruguay. Certainly amaze by their performance and entertaining "Giant Killing" match!~
And for me to "haiz" for, is Italy, Frace and England. A little disappointed for the flop which they gone through.
For other teams like Argentina, Brazil, Cameroon, Denmark and Portugal. They should done better and play better next time with those star player in their team.
The unforgettable match for me... hmm...
I would say when Argentina against Germany. It's rare to see the "Argh" being triumph like that by the "Germs's" possession. 4-0 le~ A big win... I watch that match with my brother and our friends in Mamak food court. So, it a lot livelier and I simply enjoy myself in that.

Yes, another dramatic and bounce back win for Netherlands, 2-1. This is a very important game for them. Still remember from the start, Robinho's early attempt really shock me. And it cost a goal for Brazil and Neth need to bounce back. I though Neth's tour would stop here. Certainly it's NOT!! Seems like the Neth's position is shaking after Kaka and Dani Alves's try. But the Neth come back with a stunning distance goal by Sneidjer. Yes, we're happy about that. After some struggling, Robben create a chance by corner and again, "GOAL!!!" Sneidjer head for points. We're so happy that Neth can defend against the unbeatable. We scream happily.
And about the champs, Spain. They deserved to win this tournament with such powerful squad. There's star player everywhere, even in the bench. But looking for news and article, seems they're overestimated them. They shouldn't lose to a team like Switzerland and should win big. They just win their last four match 1-0. Still, this monster squad can be improved.
And it's important for us to grade this... ENJOY~
About the player I'm impress, there are a few. Diego Forlan, Luis Suarez, Keisuke Honda, Robert Vittek, Landon Donovan, Luis Fabiano and David Villa. The dangerous predator in this tournament.
Between, for such a small country like Netherlands, you defend very well into the final and I'm impress. Become stronger 4 years later!! Believe ya~
Write the future~
