It was a tough match between the two. During the early game, it seems like no one could ever make a goal.
It was the Spanish found their stride first, living up to their pre-game billing as favourites. Vicente del Bosque's side who dominated possession and created the early chances. With the Dutch penned inside their half, Maarten Stekelenburg had to make a save after five minutes, diving low to stop a Sergio Ramos header from Xavi's free-kick from the right. Gerard Pique looked poised to follow up only to be denied by a combination of Joris Mathijsen and Dirk Kuyt.Watch Netherlands vs Spain replay/highlights video below.
