Wow, 70 minutes in and still no score. I believe that what happens is that if it’s still scoreless (or tied) at 90 minutes (plus a couple more they add to compensate for any delays) they play two more 15-minute periods, and if it’s still tied they go to sudden death.
It doesn’t take much football expertise to see that the Spanish players are astonishingly agile – they keep doing this sort of pirouette around and over the ball.
Uh-oh, I think a Dutch player just got pulled out. They don’t seem to be short a player so I think it was just a substitution.
I don’t really understand offsides. It’s been explained to me, I just keep forgetting. So don’t bother – I should just go look it up, except I don’t know the Dutch word for it anyway so I wouldn’t know when it happened.
Things have definitely heated up after the slow start – I’ll actually be surprised if they do get to 90 minutes without a score.
By the way, there is commentary on the game from people who actually understand it here. I’m finding it helpful, since it’s actually in English and the broadcast I’m watching is Dutch.
