We might not see a better one the rest of the way. Robin Van Persie’s goal for the Netherlands equalized the match with Spain, 1-1, minutes before halftime in this rematch of the 2010 World Cup final.

The Dutch carried the momentum into the second half, and lead defending champs, 3-1, after a goal by Arjen Robben at the  52nd minute and another one by Stefan de Vrij at the 64th minute – although the third goal probably should’ve been called a foul.

Update: Ok, it’s now officially a massacre as Van Persie scores his second goal of the match – and the team’s fourth – in the 72nd minute, leaving the current score 4-1 with still plenty of time to play.

Spain lost its first match in the 2010 World Cup too, falling to Switzerland, 1-0. The Spaniards never lost again the rest of the way. That seems unlikely to happen this time.
