Robben, Van Persie strikes help Netherlands crush Spain 5-1
2014-06-14, 02:08 PM,
Stunning goals from Robin van Persie and Arjen Robben fired the Netherlands to a 5-1 demolition of Spain who endured a miserable start to their World Cup defence in a pulsating Group B game on Friday.

In complete contrast to the tetchy World Cup final between theRobben sides in 2010 which Spain won 1-0, the Dutch took sweet revenge with a vibrant display capped off by two goals each for Van Persie and Robben and one by defender Stefan de Vrij.

"I certainly didn't expect this result but I did expect us to score in the way we did," Dutch coach Louis van Gaal told reporters.

"Spain were always going to come at us and we catch them on the counter. My players did it perfectly. It's far better than we ever expected," Dutch coach Louis van Gaal told reporters.

Only once before had Spain conceded five times in a World Cup game, on Brazilian turf in 1950 in a 6-1 loss to the hosts. The Dutch mauling at Salvador's Fonte Nova arena was also the worst ever start for defending world champions.

Good to see Spain put in their place at last, they like to keep the ball that is for certain.
End of an era perhaps with them, interesting, the jury is out on that one I guess.

Hopefully Netherlands will make it to the final and win it this time.

Well this doesn't mean that Spain isn't totally out of the game, they have quality players but they should replace few of them like Casillas and Xavi. That is if Del Bosque decides to do so. However I think that Spain will will easily the next match against Chile because they will probably get easily through their defense.
