Netherlands best players were Adam Maher followed by Jeremain Lens. Our oldest player outside of RvP, when starting the game, was only 21 years of age.

Maher had two glorious opportunities in the box and Buffon made two very solid saves. He also set up Kuyt in the 80th minute, right around the penalty area, but he completely missed his attempt on goal. If we would've capitalised on half of our chances, we would've won this game by 2 or 3 goals but Italy's netminder was the difference.

Solid performance from a very very young squad.
