10:11 and one goal behind, doesn't look good for Brazil. There is one good thing about Brazil dropping out, their coach will likely be fired and Brazil can play their old style of soccer again.
I am a bit worried about the heated atmosphere, I hope there won't be more ugly scenes like the foul that lead to the red card.

Absolutely. After the equalizer, Brazil's wheels just came off.

Would not have believed it had I not seen the game.

I absolutely HATED the Dutch and their diving performance here. For a second, I thought this was a diving competition! Seriously, the Dutch don't deserve to advance, but Brazil didn't either. They completely lost composure and their emotions just rule over them. I think other teams iwll do well to remember how to beat Brazil now - dive, get in the way, prevent them from advancing, and you should frustrate them enough to lose composure.

I certainly hope Uruguay advances, since they DO play dirty, and will give the Dutch a REASON to fall to the ground.

Sounds like you've got a case of sour grapes. I think it was a marvelous second half performance by the Dutch. They came back against a Brazil team that had NEVER lost a WC match after leading at HT.

Congratulations to the Netherlands!

I hated the way the Dutch played too. Hope they either stop the diving melodramas, or lose. The Brazilians except for the player that got the red car at least were more professional in that sense

I wouldn't blame though losing the game b/c of the diving. The red card was well deserved. The Dutch defense just got stronger on the second half and Brazil fell apart.
