Netherlands – Mexico
The Dutch came in the World Cup with a rejuvenated composition and a few more experienced. There is a lot of confusion over how the “tulip” look and play, but it clearly suggests that Louis Van Gal did a great job.
“Oranje” is one of four teams with a maximum effect after the first round. Particularly “striking” to the Netherlands in the first round over Spain, World Champion (5:1), and so suggested a quick return of the “fury” to the home. And on the eve of the tournament was known that the strength of “tulip” don’t lies at a young defense, but on offense, led by experienced Arjen Robben, Wesley Schneider and Robin van Persie. Expectations were absolutely justified because the Dutch in the first stage of the tournament scored ten goals and were the most efficient team. In the last game, an experienced trainer could not count on the attacker Robin van Persie, who has the deed suspension, as well as defender Bruno Martins Indi, which is against Australia suffered a concussion. Both the Sunday ready for the performance, but the defender will wait for his chance from the bench.

Mexico is also a pleasant surprise in the first three rounds. Not placing themselves, but the way of the game. Against Cameroon dominated and certainly won with two goals canceled, with Brazil have played equal game and In the last round they beats Croatia. However, all this will be quickly forgotten if Sunday night go home. Victory will bring final and match against a better team from challenge Costa Rica – Greece. Selector Herrera does not change much, and there is no reason for it.
The high importance of the game and defensive power of Mexico could get him down a little attacking ambition-Holland. Mexicans are played with Brazil on ‘zero’, we would not today surprised a similar result. Because of the strength and aggressiveness of them may be a small advantage, although it seems to be the best type of under 2.5 goals.
