Holland looked alot better than England in the Euros and took part in the best game in the tournament (vs. Czech Republic).
I'm English, but can't really complain about Portugal beating us because they were the better team in that game, disallowed goal or not.
England have the best team since 1966 at the moment, but still look a little toothless whenever Rooney is missing.
anyway, I reckon Holland have as much chance as anyone of winning the World Cup. On their day they can beat any team in the world.
