Should Holland lose on purpose today?

If Holland tanks the game, they will eliminate Italy and France from the tournament.

Holland is already first in their group, don't you think it's a smart move?

Being a Spain fan, I have selfish reasons for thinking this way. Spain would not have to play Italy or France (both would kick spain's ass), instead we'd play Romania.


Go Spain!!

They will lose on purpose if they are good enough to win later like the Boston Celtics.......

i'm not saying make it obvious. just put in some 18 year old scrub players, third string goalie, and play a 0-10-0 formation.

Wouldn't it be in Holland's favor to have either Italy or France knock Spain out of the tournament?

Holland should lose the game, so it can eliminate the 2 strong opponents. they will be kicking themselfs in the ass, if they lose against France or Italy later on in the Tournament.
