Holland slays another giant

The Dutch squad, coached by former great Marco VanBasten, has clearly moved to the front of the line of contenders with their second straight defeat of a favorite when they demolished France 4-1.

France pulled to within 2-1 after a goal by Thierry Henry but Holland immediately countered one minute later with a score by Arjen Robben to restore the two goal lead. By virtue of both wins, Holland has clinched a spot in the final eight with one game remaining in group play.
