Our Dutch boys are home!

Our Soccer boys played really well but yet were defeated in the last few minutes in over time against Spain making the score 1:0.  With their tails between their legs, the very sorry soccer players arrived back in the Netherlands yesterday.  Today their day was packed with a meet with the Queen, press conference, canal tour and a salute celebrations "de Huldiging".  I am sure after they saw over 500,000 people show up to the celebrations, their confidence were renewed! Our boys may not have come home with the world cup but they certainly put up a fight for it!

Sorry the video is in Dutch - This video was thanks to our media but it was to give you an idea of how much of a hype our boys in orange are. They may not have come home with the world cup but in my eyes they are winners all the way!!

I'm so glad they got such a wonderful welcome back! Hopefully next time around they can take the trophy home!
