Slick Dutch stuns world champions!!
What a great headline!! The Oranje ended a 30-year wait for a victory over Italy in emphatic fashion as they began their Group C, dubbed Group of Death campaign with a rousing 3-0 win against the world champions in Berne.
The fan could barely believe what he was seeing..
Goals scored by: Wesley Sneijder, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Giovanni van Bronckhorst

Must praise Van de Sar too for saving that Fabio Grosso at close range shot by Fabio Grosso and diving effortlessly to deny Pirlo free-kick, thus keeping a clean sheet!
Azzurri back line was missing injured captain Fabio Cannavaro and Oranje’s strongman Sneijder proved himself to be a dangerous, potent force upfront teaming Van Bronckhorst and Van der Vaart.
A good start definitely. Is it a sign of something BIGGER?? The last time they won was in 1988. Well, it is still too early to tell 😀 Remember Argentina in World Cup 2006? After some impressive performances in the group stage, Argentina was booted out by Germany in the quarter final.
We had already beaten Italy, now time to square off France! Go go Oranje!
