Woo, what a great matchup this will be. I can't wait. The "new look" Dutch under one of the greatest strikers of all time (Van Basten) will be squaring off against Lippi's new look Azzurri next month - November 12, 2005.

Who will win and why?

Dutchfan, this is a great opportunity don't you think?

So far it's 5 - 1 in favor of the Orange....I love it!! The Azzurri are the underdogs

For the Azzurri:

Philipas (surprised me, but then maybe not he may just be making repairations for other "less than ideal" comments made about the Azzurri in the past

)

For the Orange:

Apparently it's all of the Brazilian contingency

brazuca5copas (no surprise, but it looks like he has refrained from calling the Azzurri "big shits" and "porcorias" this time. Maybe he's trying to reform himself



),

Fan (heheh - once said he "was" a Fan of the Azzurri),

Milanfan1 (oddly has the same writing style as brazuca5copas...strange

),

r0naldo4life,

Tricolorforever.

- you gotta wonder why many of them sound the same

on this forum...have the same syntax etc

I voted for Holland.

Sorry soccerates but the Dutch seem to have the edge over Italy as a very solid team especially in their last match against Germany, even though a while back, it is a new beginning for the Netherland coming into the WC season.

Italy on the other hand could just pull off another victory from Vieri's tap ins or last minute goals from Zaccardo and other defenders. But seriously unless Lippi can pull off a solid line-up and mentality for all the talent he has on the Italy NT, then I don't think a win is the resultant waiting for them.

Even though there is only a win-win poll and I voted for Holland, I seriously think Italy can pull off a tie.

Anyways, I'm always ready for surprises.

The dutch won't be able to cope with the defense, they'll get frustrated, move forward and take too many chances. They will be beaten on counter attacks.
