WORLD CUP SEMI FINAL PREVIEW: The Daily Star’s Danny Fullbrook previews tonight’s semi final clash. Our man in the Rainbow Nation reckons its the Dutch all the way with van Persie to bag the opener.
Netherlands V Uruguay Betting Preview
Can you just imagine the odds on Uruguay being the last South American team in the competition?
To think that they have lasted longer than both Brazil and Argentina is just crazy, but they have a compact team that knows what it is doing and with a striker like Diego Forlan can always cause problems.
But I still can’t see them beating Holland. Fabio Capello claimed that England were tired but Wesley Sneijder has had a hell of a season helping Inter Milan win the treble, which included the Champions League, and for me so far he has probably been the player of the tournament alongside David Villa and Thomas Muller.
Having tipped Robin van Persie as top goalscorer I now have to stay loyal to him in terms of first goal tonight, heart over head maybe but he has to come good at some point in this tournament.
If the Dutch do score first I think the game could end 2-0 or 3-0 with the way they have been playing.
