World Cup 2010 South Africa : Holland Vs Denmark 2-0 – Statistics
Holland have won Denmark 2-0 after dominating the majority of the game on Monday’s Group E Game.
Wesley Sneijder also managed to earn FIFA Man of the Match award after being one of the most influential players on the field.
It is obvious that the 26-year-old is still on a high after winning the Champions League with Inter Milan.
With the absence of Arjen Robben, the Dutch looked very in control and were unlucky not to score their 3rd or 4th goals.
However Denmark kept the game in its high tempo not giving in to the Dutch side, but their efforts were not good enough especially with the injured Nicklas Bendtner not playing in the game.
However it is fair to say that both European sides were missing influential players.
Eljero Elia, the winger/striker who currently plays club football at Hamburger SV, Germany also managed to impress after coming on as a substitute for Rafael van der Vaart on the 67th minute.
The 23-year-old Dutchman managed to cause all sorts of problems for the Danes and it was his shot which came of the post for Kuyt to pounce and score Hollands second of tee came.
