Against the midfield duo of snarling Marc Van Bommel and Nigel De Jong, Spain figure not to have as much of the ball as they've had in previous – if they do, it could be a long night for the Dutch. The Spanish got great work out of Pedro against Germany, in for Fernando Torres, and will almost certainly come back with the young Barcelona forward again. This one shapes up to be pretty even, with the teams' top scorers David Villa and Wesley Sneijder on five goals apiece – at least before Saturday's third-place game, that total put them sharing the lead for the Golden Boot. And in Arjen Robben and Sneijder, Netherlands has a 1-2 of experience, guile and muscling creativity the likes of which Spain has yet to see here. Very close.
