Day 3: Player of the Day
I went into yesterday hoping to be able to crown a French player, but since they played like ass (see the post below for more on that) I had to check out the Italy v Netherlands match. I assumed Italy would win, so when the Dutch finished 3 goals to the good, I was pleasantly surprised. I have hated the Italian team since they won the World Cup in 1982. Whenever they lose, I feel good, but losing to such a well-polished group of Oranje, was just so nice to watch. I was going to give the award to Ruud van Nistelrooy, but his goal was pretty shady (about 5 yards offsides). That left us w/ 10 other people to consider but only 1 of them really deserves this great award so w/o further ado, I give you the Visions of Ypsi Player of the Day for Day 3 of the group stage: Wesley Sneijder.
