  1. I was 11 when i watched this game. Incredible game from Toldo. One of the best dutch teams ive seen. Played roughly 100 min with 10 men. What a win

  2. Never forget that game
    The Dutch missed two penalty’s in open play.
    Del piero missed two great chances to finish the French in the final. Such a shame we didn’t win it . Oh well we had our time 6 years later
