Germany wins the Toss!
Do they want to Kick Off the first half, or the second?

Fwwwweeeeeet!

Germany kick off, and their wingers fly off down the pitch. The Dutch must have watched the opening of the England USA match, since their full backs are alert and a forward steps into the channel to BLOCK the pass.

But the runs are just a feint! The German forward DRIBBLEs through the center circle and suddenly there's a whole lot of green in front of them . . .

Minute: 3
Zone: Edge of NED box
Possession: Germany (Red Star)

The German forward has support up alongside him as he advances towards the Dutch goal. He looks to pass and the defender ANTICIPATES, trying to cut it out!

But the forward keeps the ball, DRIBBLING into the box . . .

Minute: 6
Zone: NED Penalty Area
Possession: Germany (Two Stars)

Jinking to his right, the striker tries to slip a PASS into a winger bursting in on goal! He appears to have a great opportunity for a shot, but at the last moment the Dutch Full Back slides and BLOCKS the ball in - great play.

He even manages to clear the ball out of the penalty area . . .

Minute: 9
Zone: Edge of NED box
Possession: Holland (No Star)

As a Dutch midfielder attempts to DRIBBLE the ball out of defense, the striker whose pass was blocked tries to win it back.

But his TACKLE is clumsy and from behind!

Free Kick to Holland and a yellow card, to boot . . .

That's what you get for passing it around the penalty box

EDIT: Ouch!

The Dutch live up to their "total football" pedigree, PASSING the free kick short and pinging the ball quickly around the pitch while the Germans are still complaining to the ref!

The ball is eventually fed into the front man at the edge of the D, with his back to goal . . .

Minute: 12
Zone: Edge of GER box
Possession: Holland (Blue Star)

The German defense collapses on the striker, PRESSING to try and force a mistake, but he plays a nifty ONE-TWO with a midfield colleague, spins on the ball and opens up a possible shooting opportunity . . .

Minute: 15

Possession: Holland (Two Stars)

The ONE-TWO has him through on goal, with only the 'keeper to beat. But no! The big Center Back ANTICIPATES his body swerve and pokes the ball out to his Full Back, who comes forward.

A lot of good approach play as well as some desperate, last gasp defending in the early going here . . .

Minute: 18
Zone: Edge of GER box
Possession: Germany (No Stars)

An exciting attacking game by both teams! The crowd is satisfied with the match and gives a long applaus, a thundering claps!

CLAPCLAPCLAPCLAPCLAPCLAPCLAPCLAPCLAPCLAPCLAPCLAP

(Too bad the foul at the first few minutes were caught by the referee. Now that GERMANY is without the Tackle/Rebound card, NETHERLANDS should take advantage of this situation... or not )

The German full back tries to DRIBBLE the ball out of defence. Terrible decision there! The Dutch PRESS is all over him and the ball goes out for a Dutch throw . . .

Now the Dutch full back throws the ball in down the line, seeking out a winger. ANTICIPATING more fancy passing, the German defence is surprised by the change of pace, the burst which DRIBBLES the ball into the box . . .

Minute: 24
Zone: GER Penalty Area
Possession: Holland (Blue Star)

The flashy winger takes ONE-TWO steps towards goal, past the despairing BLOCK of the last defender and shoots high and hard . . .
