7 Reasons That The Netherlands Will Win The World Cup.

7 Reasons That The Netherlands Will Win The World Cup.

1.  Un-likeability.  Almost every successful World Cup team contains at least one thoroughly un-likeable character: Maradona, Rudi Voller, Gerd Muller and Marco Materazzi are all World Cup winners and in their squad the Netherlands have diving, whinging, sour-faced git Arjen Robben (the only thoroughly un-likeable Dutch person), so they’re bound to succeed.  How we’ll all loathe him when he lifts the World Cup aloft on Saturday.  But,...
