Good thing about for Holland is Robin shots are good from distance.

Holland will be champion! Spain is good, but they don't score that good. Holland scores better. And Spain has some good attacking midfielders, but only one real striker, Villa. As Torres is not in shape. Holland has more then enough strikers. That should give them the upperhand.

Not expecting a thrilling game, Spain hold on to the ball forever and just wait for gaps to occur. Holland will defend deep and let them have the ball so a lot of the play could be very tedious. Could well be like Barca/Inter in the Champions League, though I still think Spain will win.

I think it will be like Inter (Holland) vs. Bayern (Spain), defensive vs. attractive

Still I think Holland will win. Spain plays very good, they have a lot of ball possesion, but they don't score much. Like against Paraguay they only scored one goal in the 84th minute, while everybody thought Spain would win with 4-0. Against Germany the same, they were the better of the two, lot of ball possession, but only one goal. Which was scored by a defender.
I think Holland may be not as good as Spain, but they have a solid defence and some very good strikers.

Spanish strikers are selfish, only Iniesta isn't a selfish guy. In the last match, Pedro and Torres were clean through, Pedro should have passed to Torres but waited and the defender came. Only Villa and Iniesta can win the title for Spain

Flu hits Germans amid Klose worrries
(AFP) Friday 9 July 2010

Germany have been hit with flu worries as well as concerns over the fitness of star striker Miroslav Klose ahead of Saturday's FIFA World Cup™ third place play-off against Uruguay, team sources said on Friday.

Coach Joachim Loew is suffering from the flu - and so are skipper Philipp Lahm, striker Lukas Podolski - though it is hoped they will both be fit for the match. Klose meanwhile missed training as he struggles to get over a back problem which affected him in the semi-final loss to Spain on Wednesday.

"Loew is confined to his bed and will not take part in the pre-match press conference at Port Elizabeth this evening," said spokesman Harald Stenger.

Assistant coach Hansi Flick will step in for the afternoon press conference but Loew is expected to take his place in the dugout on Saturday. Flick also took Friday training. Lahm and Podolski sat out that session but "their state of health is less serious than that of the coach," said Stenger.

Klose hopes to play, meanwhile, as he is one goal off Ronaldo's all-time FIFA World Cup scoring record of 15 goals.

If we win, we'll be the first World Champion who have won every match out of the 7
