The first semi-final: World Cup 2010

Last  night little Uruguay met fat Netherlands - in terms of relative populations represented.

I was impressed by the spirit of a team which fell behind but never gave up. Uruguay went 0-1, then 1-1, then 1-2, 1-3 and near the end 2-3 when the Dutch managed to hold on. This quote from the Guardian shares my feelings:

"The opposition had too much pride, however, to let the game fade away and Maxi Perreira's perfect, curled drive cut the deficit in stoppage."
