Oh, c'mon guys, it's obvious you all are going for the underdogs.

I mean, when a team like the Socceroos start playing, there's going to be tears on the field.

Greece down, Holland next.

AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIE!! OI OI OI!!

I prefer Spain but...

Cristiano Ronaldo is a magician with the ball. :P And I love saying his name with the little Spanish/Portuguese accent.

England beat Jamaica 6-0 in a friendly. Crouch with the hat trick.

Jan Koller scored twice and Nedved added 1 in Czech Republic's 3-0 win.

Poland upset Croatia 1-0.

Spain beat Egypt 2-0

Italy and Portugual also won their games 3-0 against weaker teams.

The game between the Aussies and Holland ended in a 1-1 draw. Wesley Sneijder, Van Bronckhorst and Cocu didn't finish the game. Left the game early, injured.

What the hell is the point of friendlies a week before the biggest tournament in the world? Grrrr.

We beat Mexico 2-1 sometime last week too. The funny thing is my dad was in Mexico at the time so he couldn't really celebrate too much.

Those Hollies are a bunch of cats :P

We scored the equaliser down to 10 men, and it was a very evenly called and played match.

Apparantly the Netherlands doesn't like it when a team plays the same physical style as themselves, albeit with less skill.

I look forward to the next time we play, cos then we'll have Skoko ... and KEWELL!!!

...and it'll be 2-1 Aussies.

My favourite player for the Holland team is Wesley Snejpes. :) His nickname on the team is "Blejde" because he just 'slices and dices' his way through the opposition. :angry2::P

:king: :hlogo: :king:

5001 - a really spaced out odyssey :blink:

In World Cup I always support Holland, I don't like the spanish national football team.

This year I think Brazil is favorite, they have a great offensive time, but not a solid defense, Cafu is too old and

Roberto Carlos plays horrible all this season in Spain.

Spain is my #2 team! Gotta go with the roots. And I found out yesterday that my great great grandfather was born in Holland so I DO have roots there after all. :king:

I think Ukraine may surprise some people.

Also, goalkeeper Dida hasn't been as good as he's been the last number of years.

Just saw a pic of Djibril Cisse on the ground injured during a friendly against China. From what I gather, he has broken his leg again.

Has anyone heard about results for Sneijder, Van Bronckhorst or Cocu? They should've been figured out by now but I spent some time looking and couldn't find anything.

Although I don't know of a decent Dutch football site in English either.

Yes it's true, he broke his leg.

As for the dutch players: i can't find the latest news. But yesterday Cocu didn't play during training. He seems to be the worst injured of the three. According to the coach they will play sunday. VdVaart also seems to be fit again. He got a jersey during practice so he should play sunday!

I have no worries.

Sorry i dont have any dutch soccer sites in english for you.

No worries Dutchie, I've got you!

:P

Good to hear they should be good for Sunday, my dad has been freaking out since I told him they all got injured.

Update: Cocu and vdVaart should be ready. Dunno what's with Gio so he will be ready also.

Sneijder probably won't be ready for the whole game. But he wasn't starting probably after all.

I just beat it as Australia, can anyone beat my score?

1607133857444946912_fs.jpg

LMAO!

I just played that game and got 415, 894!

100 000 point bonus for winning the Cup too.

I scored 10 goals in a game 3 times and won all of them except for the opener (10 000 point bonus per win so yeah). I also scored a few long balls which are nice bonuses.

In real life -

England's beating Paraguay 1-0 right now.
