    Arguably the most unpredictable tie of the round, but Oranje will be favourites.

    Doing pretty well again now so....

    by default I back Holland to win, but a Costa Rica surprise would be great and isn't that unlikely.

    That said probably a lower scoring match than Brazil-Colombia. So under 2.5 for me. If Holland play right I can see it being 2-0. If Costa Rica win, would be 2-1.

    Holland to win 2-0 imo. Although I would like to see an upset and also because then LVG can have a short break and then take on his duties as United manager xD.

    Paul Merson "RVP hardly had a kick against Chile" Van Persie was suspended for that match. Is this what they pay Paul Merson for?

    Merse was probably on the gear again during the game

    Merse is basically one of those guys you'll see at the bar in any pub just on the outskirts of London, chatting **** about footie to all who'll listen. A proper bar-stool pundit, every pub has at least one :laugh:

    Netherlands probably the only team in the quarters so far have have looked incredibly strong in their quarters match. Will be surprised if they don't score soon, they've got all the possession and Costa's not even threatening to score a goal at all.
