Thank you Netherlands, The Tournament has started: Van Nistelrooy, Sneijder and van Bronckhorst scored

In the best match of this EURO 2008, Holland beat Italy 3-0 at Stade de Suisse Wankdorf, Berne.

Van Nistelrooy, Sneijder and van Bronckhorst scored and gave this victory to the Netherlands. During the second half Italy had many opportunities with Pirlo, del Piero and Grosso attacking; but an amazing counterattack signed the Orange victory 3-0.

Both teams have played very well; but the Holland accuracy, and Totti and Cannavaro absences seem to be keys of the match.

The lineups:
Netherlands:
Van der Sar, Ooijer, Boulahrouz (Heitinga 77), Mathijsen, Van Bronckhorst, Kuyt (Afellay 81), De Jong, Van der Vaart, Engelaar, Sneijder, van Nistelrooy (Van Persie 70).

Italy: Buffon, Panucci, Barzagli, Materazzi (Grosso 55), Zambrotta, Ambrosini, Pirlo, Gattuso, Camoranesi (Cassano 75), Toni, Di Natale (Del Piero 64).

Goals: 26 min; Ruud Van Nistelrooy. 31 min; Wesley Sneijder. 79 min; Giovanni van Bronckhorst.

Yellow Cards: Toni, Zambrotta, Gattuso (ITA); De Jong (NED).
