What a game! Louis van Gaal substitutes Cillessen for Krul just before the end of extra time and he saves 2 penalties to win the game. Gaal must have cojones of titanic proportions to do that. ManU supporters must be looking forward to next season.

At least you can sleep with a huge smile. When we lost to Costa Rica (the time here had gone 5am),
I was waiting for breakfast watching the replay in disbelief!
(well, actually, the breakfast was excellent)

:lol:

So who taught the Dutch team how to win at penalties? England wants to know!

Gus, it was actually simply the logical and smart tactical thing to do. Krul is the better penalty killer of the two. I read from van Gaal that Cillessen didn't even know he was going to be replaced if it were to come to penalties, just to make sure he could keep his head in the game. Krul knew but had to keep his mouth shut.

Cillessen will be playing against Argentina just like normal :)

Genius move from Van Gaal yet again, every substitute he brought in so far has really contributed to the game!
Tim Krul is my new hero!

Yes, but now he knows what will happen if they ever go to penalties again in this tourney. Let's hope he can keep his head anyway.

I don't see why he should have any problem... Saving penalties, and saving shots on goal during a match probably require slightly different skills and also different mindsets. I think more teams would do better to distinguish between goalkeepers who are better at one than the other, and switch accordingly. To me this was not a "genius move" as such, it's just common sense. Same way you substitute in defenders if you just want to hold your lead.

I strongly believe this move was genius. He surely had this move pre-prepared. Moreover:


1. Since the sub-goalie was not playing, he would have done a lot of penalty saving practice,
while the other one was preparing for the actual game.

2. A fresh goalie with a clear mind was brought to play, when all the rest (including Costa Rica's
penalty takers) had more than two hours of play in their fatigued bodies, was advantage Holland.

3. Meanwhile, Navas was full of bruises, tensed, and exhausted from the relentless Dutch attacks.


I was going for the Cinderella Costa Rica, but that move made me take off my hat to the Dutch coach.

:D

It was planned according to van Gaal.

Someone has to do it for the first time *shrug* I didn't think it strange, power of deduction and such. :)

On to the next game!

Well let's just say it is dumb not to have done it before, because it's based on *the* most basic and obvious management concept which even the most inexperienced managers must be aware of: Choose the best man/woman/tool for each job.

Actually, there is an important factor why this has not happened before. Having just three subs (most of which
are used during the normal period, while because of the tiredness, always used at the start of extra time),
it was totally unexpected to keep one till the very end.

I am pretty sure the rest of the players (besides the goalkeeper) would be cursing Van Gaal for not freshening
the team up and stubbornly wearing them out!

:lol:

^ Good point! But it makes you wonder if he was planning to use this strategy in their earlier games, at least those which were still at a draw when subs were considered?

Germany is up 2-0 right now, so smart choice :lol: . Klose just passed Ronaldo for the all-time World Cup goal record with 16.

Sure we adopted this rubbish tactic, never expected 5-0 in the first round! Well at least our shrinks will have lots of work for the next 4 years!

Brazil have never lost a World Cup match by more than 2 goals. So they have to score 3 goals just to be the worst they have ever been. :?

At 5-0 I predicted 7-0 which wasn't far off considering some might have expected 10 or more at that stage.
What an amazing psychological advantage Germany will have in the final. For the first time I think perhaps a non South American team will win the tournament.

As I said to some of my friends...

That was not Germany. That was cybernetic organisms that came from the future to wake up Brasil
and include Kaka and Coutinho next time.

At another point I was thinking... can you guys stop that joke and get going with the real game?

And to recap... the shock was so big, that I caught myself watching cricket for twenty minutes continuously
for the first time in my life!!!

No, a European team has never won the world cup when it has been held in South America (in fact in Central or North America as well).

I am sure there must exist some weird parallel universe where Brasil equalised to 7-7

The funny thing is I initially thought the TV was just showing replays of the second goal from different angles in quick succession, but no, those "replays" were actually the third, fourth, and fifth goals. :lol:

Greece loses to Costa Rica in penalties.
Costa Rica loses to Holland in penalties.
Holland loses to Argentina in penalties.

So... if Argentina loses to Germany in penalties,
can Greece ask for a penalty shoot out with Germany
to complete the circle of the sphere?

:lol:

Yeah, i agree, many other important things like volleyball, rubik cubes, brazilian hospitality, etc... just kidding, you still can get the third place :)

Maybe Brazil tried to give hope to all other countries that did not win the cup by losing from 7x1 for Germany, this way all other contries can say they were not so bad as us... or maybe Brazil suffered from some new weapon that caused then amnesia during the last match, let's see how the next 2 matchs are going to end and we can discover that...

I think you should have completed your signature results list though. Netherlands did really well in the competition and you should be proud of them. 3rd or 4th out over nearly 200 countries isn't bad at all.
