World Cup Predictions: Group E

The tournament is getting close now, so I had better speed up my predictions. In Group E, we find Cameroon, Japan, Denmark, and the Netherlands--or Holland, if you prefer. Let's just call them Dutch or the Orange.

The Dutch team is one of the most talented squads in the World Cup, but as always they will be hampered by their silly and often unpronounceable names. Below is the Dutch team's expected starting lineup. Good Luck with these names:

K Maarten Stekelenburg, Ajax (Netherlands)
D Gregory van der Wiel, Ajax (Netherlands)
D Johnny Heitinga, Everton (England)
D Joris Mathijsen, HSV (Germany)
D Giovanni van Bronckhorst, Feyenoord (Netherlands)
M Nigel de Jong, Manchester City (England)
M Mark van Bommel, Bayern Munich (Germany)
M Wesley Sneijder, Internazionale (Italy)
F Dirk Kuyt, Liverpool (England)
F Robin van Persie, Arsenal (England)
F Arjen Robben, Bayern Munich (Germany)

Of course, I can't say any of the names on the rosters from Denmark, Cameroon, and Japan, either. So I'm not picking any team from this group get past the second round.
