Netherlands so Close

The Netherlands have been so close to winning the World Cup so many times, but someone always gets in their way. Last World Cup it was Spain and this time it was Argentina. They held Messi and Co. to 0-0 for 120 minutes (Argentina scored, but it was called offsides. I don’t think it was). Wow! The game went into penalties and this time Louis van Gaal (the Netherlands coach) was unable to sub Tim Krul (the penalty master) in. The Argentine goalie saved the first penalty. Then when the game (in penalties) was 3-1 and the Dutch needed to score he saved another to win the game! The Netherlands will have to wait four more years for another chance at the trophy. Meanwhile, Argentina will have a chance to win the cup this year in Brazil!
