In a game that only had one exciting moment when Belgium came back to a 4 -3 score, the Netherlands scored 6 goals in a row (10 - 3) and from that moment on, the Dutch tried to enjoy the public with nice actions.
But it must be said that the Red Devils never gave up and also scored some beautiful goals. The first half ended with a 12 - 7 score and via 15-10 there was again a run of 5 goals at Dutch side (20 - 10) and that was the sign for many substitutions. The game ended with a very clear victory for the Dutch team, 23 - 13. Holland did it again!
At the end of a long and hot day the team of Portugal had still enough energy to perform the Dutch song "Naar rechts, naar links"....
