For the first time since 1978, the Oranje team has made it to the final match of the World Cup with zero loses and ties in the WC matches leading up to this point. Paired off against Spain, who has fielded a powerful team this year, the Netherlands has the chance once again to finally get their first World Cup victory.
Being a Red Sox fan, I’m pretty use to this underdog sense of anticipation as our team makes the push into new territory. It’s been fun to watch the team press through each level of the World Cup, including the (in my opinion) exciting semifinal game against Uruguay. I’ll be decked out in orange for the final match this Sunday and have my fingers crossed, even if the general sentiment is against a Dutch win.
