    Crucial game between two strong teams in the group of death. After the last game, who do you think should start up front for Holland? Van Nistelrooy or Dirk Kuyt?

    He started, and scored. 2-1 to holland at half-time. Awesome game! I can't wait to see how this one ends.

    I really wanted Côte d'Ivoire to win. Wouldn't that have made Arg v Ned more interesting.

    Côte d'Ivoire played really well! There are some real stars in that team. Kone scored a stunner. Zokora is really good. Did anyone see that spin he did in midfield? And the audacious flick by Drogba?

    Or, at least, a tie.

    Yep, that match definitely needed an equaliser.

    Aggreed, The IVORY COAST (no offence to the francophiles :) )deserved another goal. NL dont look so good, ARG should beat them

    I'm just looking at the scoreboard on Google and it says that Kone (CIV) scored off an assist from Robben (NED)! How did that happen?

    That did not happen. It was a superb solo run and long range finish. Brilliant goal. This is probably the best game so far.

    Exciting game. I think Ivory Coast was underrated because of being an African team rather than Netherlands playing badly. Both Argentina and Netherlands should win in the round of 16 - they play the Portugal-Mexio group survivors.

    I thought the referee had a bad first half, though. The first three cards were undeserved while Boularouz definitely deserved one for his tackle.

    Wasn't as good as I expected. Perhaps, I underestimated Ivory Coast, they did put up a tough fight. To be fair to Ivory Coast, I do not agree with some of the refree's decisions for Ivory Coast, some were pretty unreasonable. The Dutch team also did not seem to be at their best.

    It's almost dead certain that Holland will win. Brave or no brave, Ivory Coast lack the crucial ingredients to win this game.

    Did you watch the match?
    Ivory coast dominated the second half and if not for some brave defending, the dutch could have easily lost. I think Ivory coast is a top team, and were unlucky to lose this game.

    Actually I confused matches. Forget what I said.
