Whooo hooo! I finished in second. I think I was in 6th at the start of, and part way through, the knock out stage.
I thought the Spain-Netherlands game was pretty good. Though I was shocked by how many chances each team threw away (either by dribbling too much, flubbing shots, etc.). I'm glad Spain won, they seemed to create more chances on their own. As for the Dutch, boy they seem to play a style that is hard to like. The seemed to flop an inordinate number of times, committed more than a couple aggregious fouls (De Jong's kick to the chest?), and seemed to lack a level of chemistry, particularly on defense (lots of finger pointing...).
