    False start in main round for Orange
    Orange has been unable to continue the spectacular win over Norway. The Netherlands plays a sloppy match against Germany, where goalkeeper Eckerle excels. The defeat is certainly not disastrous, but with a win, the Orange almost received a ticket for the semi-final. The team has now lost the advantage and needs a good result tomorrow against top country Denmark.
