What other international football squad is so enjoyable to watch as the Netherlands when they play as they did tonight against Italy?

Is there another squad capable of offering a a midfielder (Sneijder) who sarcastically applauds his defensive countryman (van Bronckhorst) for an errant pass into touch; and minutes later combines with the same to score a truly stunning end-to-end goal? And against the World cup holders. When they are good, they are sublime.

But when bad? Heard of the fox that, when caught in a trap, will gnaw its leg off to escape? Eleven Dutch footballers can do that without the assistance of the trap.

Enjoy it while it lasts.
