don't blame Van Basten for that, Robben was injured, and Van Persie only recently recovered from an injury. Only our goalkeeper was up to scratch - he made some spectacular saves - and alas it was his last game for the national team.
i've read that some Turks hope their team loses, because after a Turkish victory quite a few men go out in Turkey shooting in the air; a 10-year old girl got a head wound from a falling bullet, and she's not the only one to have got hurt over the past few years. It's made illegal, but that doesn't prevent it from happening. Imagine if they should be the champions...
Too bad, we don't get any news about the other championships, there is no world outside the EC according to Dutch media. But I feel for Peru, I really do.
