Netherlands vs Mexico by JerryDrake
Mexico never reached the QF outside Mexico as they did it only in the World Cup editions in 1970 and 1986, both organized in Mexico. Holland reached and lost three finals overall in 1974, 1978 and in 2010. If Holland confirm their level of play shown in the group stage, then they can reach the semifinals and play with Argentina or maybe Belgium (or Switzerland or United States). As they defeated Spain and took their revenge on the 2010 final they could try the same with Argentina (1978 final) in the semifinal and with Germany in a final (revenge of 1974). It's just theoretical but possible.
Robben, Van Persie and Sneijdee all impressed in the first three games. Usually in a team at least one of the three main players fails to convince. This is not the case for Holland. As for yesterday with Colombia, I have no doubts again: Holland will win. We must bet on Holland to win in the regular time plus a little covering unit for the extra time. Odds 2.10 for 'this' Holland, it's Christmas time. Score prediction: 1-0.
Holland to win (regular time), odds: 2.10 Bet365, stake: 9/10
Holland to win (extra time), odds: 11.00 Bet365, stake: 1/10
