It is more than dangerous to write about World Cup football while it is still underway. Interestingly, a big debate has now started in The Netherlands with respect to the “system” that is being played. Nearly everybody hates the way the Dutch now play, but very much like the results. The world famous offensive play of the Dutch has been completely changed into a much more defensive play. The results so far are quite astonishing; never before did “Orange” score so well.
