Some celebratory pics from last night:


Didn't knew you like Soccer too, and it looks like Dutch are you favorites...

Good Luck for your team :-)

Congrats to Van Basten and his team! I hope they keep providing excellent and entertaining football\* the next few weeks.

\*It's called football, because unlike a certain other sport which looks like a padded version of rugby, it's actually played with... the foot!

Thanks Varun and Casper. Yes, Holland is my team because I am Dutch. I spent the day of the match in Holland, watched the game and celebrated with Wouter and friends, and then returned to Prague the next day.

I have been cheering for the Dutch since the day I have been playing soccer... I have always felt the Netherlands team to be the perennial underachievers... Watching Bergkamp or Cryoff's shoot at WC just prove's my point... Finally the team is performing in Euro and hope they win!! And hopefully... I didnt speak too early!!

I hope that is the big difference this time since the former attempts...until now we always had the quality of very good players available, but they never were a TEAM.

The last time we had a TEAM was in 1988. Let's hope by horrible "orange" website can stay that way until the 29th...
