Exciting stuff from both sides. Loved Uruguay’s heart. Wish we could have seen them with Suarez up top with Forlan, but you can’t argue that his game-saving handball in the Quarter Final with Ghana didn’t deserve a straight red. Netherlands got their victory and it was deserved, but Uruguay gets my vote for most impressive overachievers. I see them as what I’d like the US team to be.
