Two very disappointed Dutch women became a picturesque perfect snap of the feeling of haplessness Netherlands fans felt about their team.
So Cristiano Ronaldo receives a pinpoint pass from Nani down the wing, wrong-foots a flying Gregory Van der Wiel with a neat cut inside, fakes to shoot before smashing home a rasping drive beyond Maarten Stekelenburg and into the Dutch net to put Bert Van Marwijk’s men out of their misery.
Cue mass delirium in the Portuguese camp whilst simultaneous gloom over in the Oranje half. Who stood out the most? Why two hot Dutch girls who watched on ashen-faced whilst us footy fans watched them ashen-faced!
Catch the ladies from 20 seconds onwards. Jheeze! But was I the only one who noticed?!
