I have so much respect and admiration for the Oranje.
Starting with Cruyff, some of my favorite players hailed from that tiny country.
I do not have the memory of 1974 since I lived in a country where the game was not too big back then. I do, however, remember 1978 very well - Rensenbrink's shot that hit the crossbar which would have equalized the final...
Cruyff, Neeskens, Rensenbrink, Van Basten, Gullit, van Breukelen, Rijkaard, not to mention the 1995 Ajax squad.
I love the fact that they are such underachievers too, like Spain. This may well be their year, but Brasil is hard to beat. In any case I look forward to games fans will talk about for years to come, along with upsets/cinderella teams like Greece in Euro 2004; Senegal, Turkey and South Korea from the previous World Cup.
