The semi-final saw the Netherlands display the kind of defending from the front which should make them a tough test for favorites Spain in the big game on Sunday. Dirk Kuyt, Mark van Bommel, and Wesley Sneijder were as tenacious in their tackling as they were going forward.
This is a team which brings new meaning to the concept of the best defense being a great offense. In Arjen Robben and Sneijder, the Netherlands have two of the best creators in the game. Not only can they make goals but the dynamic duo knows how to score as well.
Sneijder is joint top of the scoring charts going into the final and Robben is no slouch when he has his eye on goal.
Bet on Arjen Robben or Wesley Sneijder to score and win big with Sports Interaction.
While I like the Netherlands to score, I have just as much faith in Spain’s attack. When push came to shove in the semi-final, Spain found a way to raise its game against top class opposition.
Germany had scored goals for fun in the early rounds but on Wednesday it was Spain that dominated. The decision to drop Fernando Torres proved inspired and I expect the Liverpool man to be left on the bench once again on Sunday. David Villa finally went a game without scoring. That brief goalless spell will end on Sunday.
Bet on David Villa to score for Spain in the World Cup Final and win big with Sports Interaction. With both attacks looking in good form it’s worth considering Sports Interaction’s price of +8000 for a goal to be scored in the first minute of the game.
These two teams are loaded with potential goal scorers so you could win big if this game has an explosive start. In the final breakdown I’m going to go with my head over my heart.
I have fallen in love with the Netherlands over this tournament. This is a team with a great work ethic which will bring out the best in any opponent. Unfortunately Spain’s best will be too much for the Netherlands. Spain’s talent at midfield will prove the difference in this game. This will be a close game but in the end Spain will claim its first ever World Cup title. Bet on Spain to win big with Sports Interaction.
