  1. I hope you've enjoyed the commentary with me Rebecca Stephenson. Thank you for all your input to me on twitter @1rebs and via my e-mail I hope to share another game with you soon!!

  2. And if that's not enough, there's the likes of van der Vaart and Huntelaar as alternative options

  3. For Holland, they look ripe and ready ahead of the Euros. Robben looks is fantastic form, and in eijder they have one of the best passers of the ball in world football. They can pass the ball for fun, and there's always the box-threat of van Persie.

  4. I thought James McPake did relatively well on his debut, and Andrew Little looked bright in patches, but they were woefully short of possession to show any attacking flair

  5. It really could have been a lot more. The Dutch took their foot off the pedal in the second half, but it will be good experience for the young NI side, ahead of some tough games next season.

  6. 90

    It was a pleasure to watch - unless you were Northern Irish.

  7. 90

    Its over!! A lesson in football for this young Northern Ireland side.

  8. 90

    Terrible miss from John Heitinga of Everton - over the bar from about 2 yards out. This really could have been a cricket score.

  9. 88

    There's the moment of the match from Northern ireland - Niall McGinn nutmegs Dirk Kuyt!... well if you can't get a consolation goal...

  10. 86

    Another long range shot from van der Vaart - just tipped over by Carroll

  11. 85

    Northern Ireland enjoying some possession... its on the halfway line but beggers can't be choosers!

  12. 80

    Arjen Robben off for Holland, replaced by Luciano Narsingh

  13. 80

    Ferguson off, David Healy on

  14. 77

    GOAL Ron Vlaar makes it six from a near post header from a corner

  15. 74

    As i speak van der Vaart hits a terrific shot which comes off the inside of the post but comes out

  16. 73

    The game has definitely dropped a gear or two - fortunately for the NI team... but you just feel that whenever the Dutch get the inclination they could just add another... my guess would be this won't go above 6 though.

  17. 70

    eijder off for Dirk Kuyt

  18. 68

    Carroll comes for the corner, but fumbles it, but the shot is wide
