They just drew with Germany which resulted in the Germans being tipped out of the tournament.

Punching above our weight!

well done on the win, but you seem to have ommitted that the dutch had to come from behind twice to draw 2 - 2 and only won on the penalty shoot out - somehow i don't think you were expecting that much 'competition' huh donovan?

What can I say - women..... :roll:

But kudos for the competition, they played a brave (and good) match.

Wouldn't it be cool if the Dutch women win the gold now, to take us past Australia in the medal count? Then the Kiwis can be proud to have had a part in that :twisted:
