Seems like the Netherlands is playing much more physically today than before in the tournament. Unfortunately, many of their "challenges" look like total cheap shots. Can there be any excuse for that kick to the chest? I wish, however, that the Spanish wouldn't all drop to the ground as though they've ruptured their spinal cords. Just get up and keep playing. "Shake if off" doesn't seem to be in the soccer vocabulary. It does seem as though the Netherlands' strategy is throwing Spain off-stride a bit, though. Second half ought to be fun.
