    I'm gonna go with an upset here, picking Mexico to beat Netherlands

    They're carrying a lot of momentum and I think their style matches well with the Dutch, they can play without the ball and have a balanced attack to throw different things at them. If they concede a lot of free kicks though it could be a problem with the Dutch height.

    1-1 and Mexico on PSO 5-3

    The other match I still can't believe is happening

    I think Greece will take it by experience. Both teams play defensively, it's not gonna be pretty, hopefully I'm proven wrong.

    1-0 Greece

    Costa Rica is gonna go all the way homie.

    But nah, go Mexico. Netherlands is my favorite Euro team, but definitely pulling for Mexico here.

    2 fouls in the box and didn't call penalty on either..

    Hope the second half opens up a bit more. Feels like I'm watching a Barcelona game

    2 penalties not called, one for each

    Mexico looked better but it's how Netherlands play, choosing to concede play to their opponents in order to get a break

    Mexico must score soon, the Dutch are bound to connect on a break eventually

    Yeah it's gonna have to be brutal to get a PK apparently. At least the Mexico goal is opening things up, the Dutch had been looking poor.

    Gotta work the deep corners more and use their size. RVP/Robben will likely have to be heroes again.

    Terrific save by Ochoa off his head lol.

    Wow, RVP gets pulled. Had been a ghost this game, but that's a surprise.
