Eh?

What?

Brazil are out?

How did that happen?

I’d love to tell you, but alas I still have only seen about 7 minutes of Dutch football out of their five matches – and 5 minutes of that was right at the end of this one. For some reason I decided to play football in the London late-20s smog instead of watching this. When I left it was 1-0 to Brazil but when I got back Holland were a goal and a man up.

This is a major surprise. Spain must be licking their lips now, unless Netherlands are actually as good as this result seems to suggest. I really didn’t see anyone getting past Dunga and Lucio and co; they’d looked brilliant all through the tournament so far but now Kaka departs as Chief Floppy Number 2 after Roon.

Maybe Paraguay can beat Spain. Maybe.
