I remember that moment so well.
It was a really hot, uncomfortable day. The match was crazy. We scored an amazing 1-0, great link-up between Kluivert and Bergkamp.
12’ Kluivert goal 1-0
Look at the weight of that Bergkamp header assist. Just lovely.
17’ They fought their way back and quickly equalized 1-1.
89’ Late on Van der Sar got Ortega sent off. Crazy moment.
My mom went completely nuts and couldn’t handle the tension anymore, so she went outside to mow the lawn. My dad, me and my brother left watching and we went absolutely apeshit when Batistuta missed the penalty (nearly destroyed the crossbar!). Couldn’t believe our luck and we prepared ourselves for extra time.
Only for our legend to go into god mode with that goal. Sheer joy of course and my mom ran inside forgetting to turn off the lawnmower. It went right through a flower bed. nobody cared.
What a day. What a team. We should have won that World Cup. Best Holland side I remember. We completely bottled it vs Brazil.
