Dutch eviscerate Spaniards

Double strikes from Robin Van Persie, including a diving looping header, and Arjen Robben inspired Netherlands to a 5-1 pummeling of defending champs Spain. In a revenge match from the 2010 final, the Dutchmen savaged the shell-shocked Spaniards with surgical finishing. Stefan De Vrij scored his 1st international goal to add to a nightmarish day for Spanish keeper Casillas. The euphoria of Xabi Alonso converting a 27th minute penalty evaporated once Dutch coach Van Gaal’s tactic of deploying 5 defenders firing long passes forward caught fire. His belief in the attacking potential of this formation as well as nullifying Spainsh tiki taka paid off handsomely. Attendance: 48,173
