Orange brilliance

One of the announcers kept referencing the "brilliant orange" colors of the Netherlands supporters and the team's uniforms during the first-round Euro 2008 match between Holland and Italy Monday. Well, there was definitely some brilliance on display by the guys in orange as Holland whipped Italy 3-0, employing some of the most entertaining offensive soccer you'll see.

Most entertaining were the second and third goals by Wesley Sneijder and Giovanni van Bronckhorst — which started as defensive stops in their own box and turned into swift counter attacks. The Sneijder goal especially was a bit if brilliance.

Fun game to watch, especially if you were rooting for Nederland, which I was.

It should also go without saying that the Dutch qualify for Cool Uniform Props. I like the new blocky numbers and light blue socks.
