  What a game...
By far the game of the tournament, and perhaps the best match I've watched in years, The Czech republic Holland match was superb. The Dutch played well, Robben, Davids, V D Saar all excelled, but what can we say about the Czechs. Mark is absolutely right; they were patient, intelligent and demonstrated the most consistent level of ball striking I've seen in a team - Nedved, Rosicky, Baros and Heinz hit the ball so sweetly all night. The Czech midfield has everything, a strong presence in Galasek winning the ball, Rosicky demonstrating that there can't be a better play maker in the tournament than him, and the dynamism and power of Nedved and Poborsky on the wings... fucking glorious to watch.

A note on broadcasting though... when will TV pundits realise that although a draw might be a fair result, for a game to really stick in the memory, to gain that hallowed status, you really need a result...
