Holland to stroll it. If Costa Rica struggled this badly against us, Holland will tear them apart

From Costa Rica's perspective this can't be a very favourable match-up, IMHO. The Dutch system under LVG should be able to manage Joel Campbell who is their outlet and the Netherlands' attackers' pace and trickery make them quite difficult opponents for Costa Rica's defenders.

Those 120 minutes in Recife won't help Costa Rica at all, either.






This has been a World Cup of surprises though so don't rule anything out.

Nigel De Jong is a massive loss for Netherlands imo . Anyway a tired Costa Rica shouldn't be a hard obstacle... never underrating anyway. of course forza Olanda, I support it after Itally knocked out

Netherlands should win this comfortably, easier than the Mexico game, but this World Cup has been pretty crazy so who knows what could happen?

They should start Clasie in midfield if De Jong is still out (he's better than De Jong anyway, but whatevs).

Blind will start there. Martins Indi will play LCB.

I doubt Van Gaal will change that.

Blind was too slow and really weak in pressing with his weaker foot. Did not like him @ DM. Did not think he offered a lot defensively either.

De Guzman is dropped due to poor form. Fer & De Jong are out.

I hope LVG goes with Clasie-Wijnaldum and with a 4-3-3 with Depay @ LW. Burn Costa Rica on the attack. Costa Rica will sit back with a 5 Man Defense. 5-3-2 is too defensive for them. The climate is expected to be better too.

Get 2 goals and shift back to a 5-3-2, take RVP off and hit them on the counter with Roben & Depay.

Hope to see Kuyt at RWB.

Would like to see one of these two for next game.

Janmaat - Vlaar - De Vrij - Blind
Clasie - Wijnaldum
Sneijder
Robben - Huntelaar - Memphis

Or

Janmaat - Vlaar - De Vrij - Indi - Blind
Clasie - Wijnaldum
Sneijder
Robben - Huntelaar

Unfortunately RVP is basically an auto-include despite being often worthless for the NT in big games, and Clasie is undervalued big time. Expect Blind to be in Clasie's place and RVP to be in Hunter's.

It might also be time to bring in Vorm for Cillesen.

Is De Jong completely out of the world cup?

It's very probable, yes. They've planned a MRI scan in a couple of days. We'll know more then.
