No the Dutch were more disappointing now than the French were then. They were World Cup finalists just 2 years ago and only lost van Bronckhorst from that team as far as important players go. Sure he was their captain and they didn't really have a good replacement for him at left back but they were in very good shape everywhere else.
I have to question Van Marwijk's decision to play Sneijder on the left all tournament. They were crying out for someone to pull the strings in the middle every game but the two guys who could do it, he or van der Vaart were preferred elsewhere.
All and all not a single guy on that team got out of second gear all tournament and the back 4 was atrocious...
