1555: LPArsenal
Robben has got a lot of the ball - his team pass to him whenever possible. However he has been very selfish at times, never knows when to stop his run and actually pass. RVN did pretty much nothing apart from give the ball away. I don't think the passing style of the Dutch suits him, he'd rather have a fast low cross to tuck in (and he's prob missing match fitness). RVP hasn't been involved much either. The Dutch get the win anyway.

1550: Armchairpro
The Dutch have looked excellent in patches and it looks pretty hot out there just as it was yesterday. Robben is beating people for fun but he does seem a bit lax to pass, could have set up a few more clean chances if he'd released the ball.

1540: Devinesy
Last 10 minutes. Holland seem to be in full control again. Van Persie dives like a dying swan. Nice free kick though. Van der Sar has cramp. How does a goalie get cramp?

1515: Biskot
Robben has been awesome; he's having so much fun. I hate Chelsea but have always liked Robben's talent, save for the silly antics. If he continues his runs, he'll have a swell of a World Cup.

1502: Bulletproofx
As we've seen in most matches so far, the heat may take a toll. Let's see if Holland can keep up their quick tempo through the second half. do they have the stamina?

1455: Toffess1888
So 1-0 at half time. I see it as a combination of good play from Holland, and Serbia & Montenegro's inability to finish off their chances.

1450: Redsta
Great tussle this one. Serbia are chasing the game and it will be fireworks in the 2nd half. Impressive work from the Dutch, although they do seem a bit shaky out wide. Then again, so do the Serbs.

1412: Toffees1888
It's in! Nice play by Holland and a good finish by Robben!

1357: LPArsenal
I'm very pleased RVP is starting - he has shown a lot of potential for Arsenal, but lacked consistancy. A good spell in the Dutch team could finally convince Wenger to start him up front instead of Adebayour. Can only see the Dutch winning this one, but think they will finish third in their group.

1345: Quickpubgrub
Serbia will be able to hold off Holland. As always the Dutch will disappoint and not live up to expectations.

1344: Schackled by the BBC
I'll be interested in how Robben plays. Will he take his antics to the world stage and will he get away with it?

1341: Van-nistelrooney
Im going 3-0 to the Dutch. RVN (2) and Van Persie. have to say the Ivorians looked good yesterday so Holland better beware...

1325: YakQueudrue
I can only really see a Holland victory in this one, but it'll be close. Argentina and Ivory Coast will beat them both and qualify.

1323: Goonerz
This will be a tight game Holland's attacking power vs Serbia's defensive mindset. It wont be a classic by any means. I predict 1-0 to the Dutch.
