No one kicks my beloved Xabi in the chest and gets away with it. Bad move, Nigel de Jong! If karma didn’t bite the Oranje’s ass mid-way into the actual game… it painfully caught up with them in extra time. They were a huge disappointment. To say they played dirty would have been an understatement given the flurry of yellow cards handed throughout the duration of the game. But the long wait was worth it. La Furia Roja is one proof that prayers indeed work miracles. I have never prayed this hard for a favorite team of mine (OA, but true) and they pulled through convincingly. Surprisingly, the haters who strongly criticized Spain prior to finals were now squabbling amongst themselves what went wrong with the Netherlands.
