Sebastian Abreu the man who finnished off Ghana in the penalty shoot out, said: “Tabarez has been talking to us about Robben and how to stop a player like him. But it’s always different when you are on the field. So we know how to do it but whether the actual execution actually comes off is another thing.”

“Tabarez has asked us to concentrate fully, not just in the matches, but also in training,” added Abreu. “He is very satisfied with our work. Looking at the Dutch, we have watched a lot of videos on their team because we don’t know too much about them. The Netherlands and Uruguay play very similar football but they have very good potential in their attack, with very clever players like [Wesley] Sneijder and Robben.”

Germany 4 – 1 England

Quick Review: Germany easily scored 4 goals against a poor England side who were dropped out of the 2010 World Cup – the big question is what will be done about goal line technology?
