We are in the midst of a wonderful Euro 2012 tournament. Thus far I must say certain teams have surprised me, like Italy’s more offensive style. However, one team has surprised me for all the negative reasons possible, Netherlands. So what is up with the Netherlands?
Before the start of Euro 2012 I said my favorites to win were Germany and Netherlands. Spain is always the favorites, of course, but I always try to play the devil’s advocate and route for other teams I enjoy watching other than Spain.
So the question stands, am I an idiot for thinking Netherlands as a possible contender to win the Euro’s? I believe not. Netherlands still has some of the best players in the world, and most will agree with me on that notion. However, it seems their tactics, formation and inner team conflicts are to blame.
