So far Holland vs Australia 0-0 after 60 minutes.

Heitinga playing okay. But Neill has been Australia's best player so far.

Watched the last fifteen and it looked a decent game...shame I didn't realise it was on earlier. TC was subbed early second half but Neill & Heitinga played the full ninety...useful for Lucas :) . Didn't see enough to comment on their performances.

I'm glad to see Lucas getting minutes. He will be a very effective tool this year. Where did Heitinga play for Holland? Right Back?

He certainly didn't play right back. Uncertain whether he was center back or midfield because from what I saw the ball rarely go out of the Aussie's half :) .

Holland battered them...this is the half/full time analysis & highlights...

How is Neill carving up Heitinga if they're both in defence and Holland dominated Australia? :unsure:

Since this is a topic about our internationals:

Fellaini played 90 minutes against Turkey. we won 2-0
He had a fairly good performance at center midfield.
he should have made the 3-0 though, alone in front of the keeper

The Dutch carved Oztralia up really. Should really have been all over by half time but their finishing was woeful.

Neill looked like he'd never played before at the start - really out of touch. But 20 mins in he was going well and played the 90mins and ended up as perhaps their best player. Good signs!

Heitenga never really had too much to do until the second half. Played right side of centre at the back and proved to be a hard, uncomprimising player. Kewell moved over to their left in the 2nd half but Heitanga was up tp it and kept him under control. A good game.

Timmy was out of touch in a midfield that never really had a chance to get going. Worked hard but with little reward as the Dutch controlled midfield from the off. Was subbed at half time to rest him for an Asian Cup game on Wed.

David Carney (now with FC Twente) played the full game and was doing OK until Ryan Babel came on and skinned the poor bugger every which way! Not really srprising as he's only just got started again after being on the outer at Sheff Utd. for 12 months or more.


All in all a good workout for the blue-boys!

COYB!
