West Brom - Pride of the Midlands
Holland maintained their rampaging winning streak to book their spot in the World Cup final with a 3-2 triumph over Uruguay.

Bert van Marwijk's side, who are on course to raise their first ever World Cup trophy, were shown real fight by the South Americans but eventually outclassed them to complete a 25-match unbeaten run.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst was the hero for Holland in an enthralling first half as he powered home an unstoppable strike from long range that even Luis Suarez' 'Hand of God' would have struggled to keep out.

Man-of-the-moment Diego Forlan then unleashed his Midas-touch just before the break as he curled the equaliser past Stekelenburg, who could have made an easy save.

But Wesley Sneijder put Holland back in charge 20 minutes from time as his deflected strike from inside the box flew past Muslera and into the bottom left-hand corner, then Arjen Robben found the back of the net just three minutes later with a neat headed effort into the bottom right-hand corner off the post.

Maxi Pereira came back for Uruguay in the first minute of added time but it turned out to be simply a consolation strike as the South Americans failed to act out a full comeback.

Holland's victory seals their passage to the decider for the first time since 1978, where they will take on the winner of the other semi-final clash between Germany and Spain.
damn robben...dnt want the biggest cry baby in the game winning anything...he should just go into acting
