Day 3: Netherlands vs. Serbia & Montenegro

Really not much to say about this game except:

This Guy!

Seriously, Holland looks the best team so far, though they almost paid for being over-indulgent - with the exception of Robben, they seemed to lack that last killer instinct. S&M, rather typically, seem a very emotional team and only threatened when Koroman got their crowd involved. I also thought the referee was fantastic as he kept the tempers cool, despite the Serbian efforts to rile things up.

MoM: Robben, who looked at his untouchable best. On that form, he's one of the top 5 or 10 players in the world.

Update: Apparently, some of the other Dutch were none-too pleased with Robben's exhibition - this strikes me as a bad sign for their chances. It can't be a good thing when the team is jealous of their the accolades bestowed on their best performer.
