Yeah, ever since Chile's win against Australia I pictured the Chileans as a good contender and boy was I so right. At least the Dutch will now have a chance to go one better than that runner-up spot from the 2010 WC, provided they can get through the Round of 16 and so on.
Told you. Already. Was seeing this coming a long way ago. There was nothing mighty in the team we fielded today, and we didn't even have the "nothing to lose anyway" attitude Australia had (because honestly they have been the first team to be knocked out and nobody has been surprised even for a second). The pressure was too much in our case.
But, again, I didn't shed a tear, unlike in all our previous defeats pre-2008 era. Because I only ever had hopes for about 20 minutes last Thursday.
