Netherlands vs. Spain, 1:30, ABC: This is it. Two sides fighting for their first World Cup ever. Hard to argue that either side hasn't earned their way in; Spain was the Euro 2008 winner and the second seed worldwide behind Brazil.

Meanwhile, the Netherlands haven't lost in over two dozen matches, and they finally dispatched their nemeses in Brazil. Hup Holland Hup, etc. This match is going to be awesome!

...Wait. Two teams from Europe. Europe's also a band. And Europe the band did a song about finality. Do you know what that means? We have a reason to post this!
