In C-group, as it has been expected, everything is very close and the second team (Netherlands will be surely on the first place in group), which will go to quarterfinals, could be France, Italy and also Romania. That means, one of the finalists of last World championship (or both of them) ends in first round.
played great in first two matches. They scored 7 goals, what is, as they played against italian and french defense, an amazing number. But starting line-up in this match will be quite different. Marco Van Basten
will nominate few players from bench, letting the key players rest and concentrate on quarterfinals against Russia or Sweden.
managed to gain 2 points from matches against France and Italy. And if Mutu
had scored from penalty kick in 80th minute of match against Italy, they would be even happier. Romania (if the match France-Italy won't end in tie) should win. The situation in Dutch team is to their advantage as Netherlands won't play with its best.
But I think that there's such good mood in Dutch team that Oranjes will beat also their third opponent.
