Uruguay 2-3 Holland: In Pictures

July 06, 2010 - Cape Town, South Africa - epa02239011 Dutch Giovanni van Bronckhorst (C) is celebrated by teammates after scoring the 1-0 lead during the FIFA World Cup 2010 semi final match between Uruguay and Netherlands at the Green Point stadium in Cape Town, South Africa, 06 July 2010.

There was something about the game between Uruguay and Netherlands that was sublime. And it wasn’t just the goals – even though all five were glorious. It was the way that both teams played their hearts out and the incredible ending where it seemed that the injury time kept on running and that the final whistle would never be heard.

But it came to an end for Uruguay who played an incredible tournament and progressively got better as they advanced through the tournament. I’m definitely going to miss Uruguay, just as I did Ghana and plenty of other teams. But tonight the victory goes to Netherlands who thoroughly deserved the win. Arjen Robben played the game of his life tonight.

What a victory for the Dutch and what a final we will have on Sunday! Next up, though, is the semi-final on Wednesday between Germany and Spain. Here are more images from Uruguay against Netherlands.
