Holland 3-0 Italy – Scotland’s past and future opposition clash in Euro 2008

I’ve not long finished watching the Holland v Italy game. And what a corker it was – total quality football.

I have to admit I was rooting for the Dutch. After the questionable defeat of Scotland at Hampden last November I have not been a huge fan of the Italian team. Watching them go down 3-0 was somewhat pleasing. More interesting perhaps (and worrying) was that the Dutch played so well.

Dutch fans

The Dutch are Scotland’s biggest threat for World Cup 2010 qualification. And after last night’s performance we really need to be wary of them. Having beat France in Paris, we are not about surrender before the occasion, but the Scotland squad really have their work cut out.

Meanwhile, I will be backing the Marco van Basten’s men to win. ‘On the Dutch!
