Kaka was kaka and the mighty have fallen

The smallest man on the pitch, Wesley Sneider, managed to head the ball into the back of the net, scoring the winning goal, while the big Brazilian defenders looked on. Kaka did not play to his full potential and was woefully poor in the second half. The experienced veteran defender Andre Ooijer played him well.  Around 70 minutes into the match Kaka tried to cheat and claim a penalty.  Frustration set in. A few moments later there was a disgraceful stamping incident by Felipe Melo and the red card was shown to the Brazilian defender. Down to ten men the Brazilians played with passion but they lost their shape and discipline. Van Bommel struggled at times, often fouling his opponents and was lucky to survive the full time whistle.  Dutch joy filled the air; the mighty Brazilians were sent out of the tournament, losing 2-1. Wesley Sneider was nominated as man of the match. Well done Wesley. You've had a great year.
