Hello World!

After the Netherlands even failed to qualify for the World Cup, I didn't think I'd be watching many football games this year. But unexpectedly enough, I've found myself another team to root for, and so have most other people in the Netherlands: South-Korea.

Prior to this World Cup, no one even knew the Koreans could play football (making them a bit like the Americans, really). A while back, however, they hired the former trainer of the Dutch national team, Guus Hiddink, who set about to completely reform the Korean way of playing football. He apparently did so quite well, ending up with a team that tested as being more fit than the Dutch team that went to the half-finals in 1998. They've also been quite successful in the actual tournament, even getting through to the quarter finals.

Here in the Neterlands, Hiddink has served as the perfect cure for our hurt ego, and by now informal polls show that three-quarters of the Dutch population would like to see the Koreans win the Cup. Tomorrow they'll be playing against Spain, and if they win, that'll be the second time in a row Guus Hiddink gets a team to the half-finals. Now if only he'd come back after that and ensure that our own team is also finally able to take part again in four years...
