World Cup 2010: Dutch women ejected from stadium over marketing stunt

This will be Group E’s most celebrated match since the Japanese team is all set to ruffle some orange Dutch feathers to cap in their slot for the World Cup. They are definitely raring to go after their winning goal scored by Keisuke Honda against Cameroon. Defeating Cameroon by 1-0on Monday the Blue Samurai team are looking forward to at least trouble the Group E favorites Netherlands just like how they did in their game last September.

Honda was the lone front man player in the game against Cameroon who scored the only winning goal in the 39th minute. Forward player Shinji Okazaki said that the competition among the Japanese strikers was immense. He went on to say, “Keisuke got the one chance and he put it away to prove his goal scoring skills. I can’t be outdone because we are of the same age.” He continued to say “I can’t go home like this. I hope I can score a goal against the Dutch.”

The Netherlands are a very strong team, and as I see it, it is probably the strongest in Group E. No matter how strong they are what we’ve all learnt from this FIFA World Cup series is that they are not impossible to beat. This is the second time the two teams meet in the last 10 month and in last September Netherlands won 3-0.

Netherlands star player Arjen Robben is out due to an injury; however under the leadership of Sneijder who has managed to get the best out of the Oranje team we could see a soul stirring match. As a midfielder for Inter Milan he has played a major role winning against the Japanese 3-0 in a friendly game. Watch out for his precise passing skills, his headers and his overall game that could give the Asians a lot of trouble.

Sneijder says, “The Japan game won’t be easy as they play a good style of football, running a lot and combining well. In our last meeting they put us under pressure for an hour but eventually we won. The second match is crucial for both sides and we will go all out to win.”
