It's time to find out whether the Dutch have a genuine chance or are just another bunch of seventies-style chokers forever condemned to a life of repeats showing them falling on their arses again. If the Brazilians were that good I would choose the latter without hesitation. They aren't, which is why I think Holland can win this one if Robben, van Persie and Sneijder are up for it.
Uruguay v Ghana: @ 7.30pm (Soccer City, Johannesburg)
Forlan and Suarez aside, this is an unappealing Uruguay side which scraped through qualifying and landed in a relatively easy group. Ghana, on the other hand, had to take on the Germans and Serbia armed only with an entertaining if childishly naïve attacking philosophy - and they got through before putting the USA out. Nice one, lads. For the sake of this World Cup I expect them to beat Uruguay and become the first African side to reach a World Cup semi final.
