Dutch delight at reaching Cup final
Holland boss Bert Van Marwijk is delighted to see the efforts of two years nearing fruition at the World Cup.
Goals from Gio van Bronckhorst, Wesley Sneijder and Arjen Robben gave the Dutch a 3-2 semi-final victory against Uruguay at the Green Point stadium last night, with Diego Forlan and Maximiliano Pereira replying.
Van Marwijk said afterwards: “I’m so very proud that such a small country is in the final of a World Cup. It’s difficult to get your head around.
“This is something we started working on two years ago. You really have to believe in something, and live it, to achieve something like this.”
