    Here's how the Dutch dealt with their loss against Spain.

    Frustration after losing soccer match in World Cup 2010

    After the soccer match Netherlands vs. Spain in the World Cup finals of 2010 in South Africa, which ended in Spain winning the World Cup (0-1), not everyone was coping well with it.
    Now, I should say that in general the many Dutch supporters behaved nicely, even though in sorrow after the loss. There were not many reports of riots. However, in the Hague, the seat of the Dutch government, Dutch supporters showed their sorrow quite differently. If you listen carefully, at 0:40 (Link to video) the crowd starts to shout: "Hamas, Hamas, Joden aan het gas" (translation: "Hamas, Hamas, send Jews to the gas"). But wtf? Really, what has this to do with football? Link

    It seems everything is the fault of the Jewish people...

    I wonder what happened to all the People's coaches over the years who didn't make it to the world cup.

    Just read this over at the Guardian web site. Wonder if FIFA will see this as political interference? Doubt it.

    Soccer in North Korea......

    ouch.......

    It seemed for a while that there would be no repercussions for North Korea's national soccer team after their dismal performance in the World Cup earlier this summer. Of course, this being North Korea, the team -- and especially its coach -- have not gotten off lightly. In a six-hour "grand debate," the entire squad (minus it's two Japan-based players, who surely must think themselves two of the luckiest people on the planet) was berated by Sports Minister Pak Myong-chol, and were then forced to publicly denounce their coach. The manager, Kim Jong-hun, was accused of "betraying the young General Kim Jong-un," the son and heir apparent of Kim Jong-Il. He has reportedly been forced out of the Worker's Party and forced to work as a construction laborer.
