Why did the Dutch wear white at home? Just trying to get some fans to buy the white shirt? Good luck with that Nike...don't know if you noticed that everyone in the stands was in orange.

Sneijder's 25 yd volley off the corner kick was something else. That corner came in so far outside the box the cameras lost track of it. The Dutch play some nice looking football.

Unless an off-camera Ghanian was behind Sneijder, the Dutchman was offside on the first goal.

On goal 3, they copied Etcheverry-Agoos against KC, many years ago.

I'll be rooting for the USA as always. Can't understand why some Americans don't.
