Tuesday, July 6: The 2010 FIFA World Cup will be won by a European team, that's for sure. Who it will be is a whole new question. The Netherlands defeated Uruguay, 3-2 in Cape Town, South Africa, to advance to their third World Cup Final. After a 1-1 tie at halftime, Wesley Sneijder and Arjen Robben scored second half goal for Holland, who has never won the World Cup. Netherlands captain Giovanni Van Bronckhorst scored on a beautiful strike in the 18th minute for a 1-0 lead, but Uruguay captain Diego Forlan equalized in the 41st minute with a great strike of his own. The Netherlands will now face either Spain or Germany in the World Cup Final. The Germans have won the World Cup three times, while Spain has never won it. The two teams will play each other on Wednesday.
