This was a birthday wish from Sneijder.
Yesterday Sneijder told his official website that a birthday wish would be to score in the game, and to win the first football match in this Euro championship over Italy in 30 years. Sneijder could not wish for a better birthday, I am scour that he is a very happy man today. The Dutch team won the match and Sneijder had a perfect birthday.
This was a perfect goal from Sneijder.
Sneijder marked his 24th birthday by scoring a sensational second. It came from a quite sublime counterattacking move that started with a clearance of the Dutch goal line by Gio van Bronkhorst, and ended with Sneijder finishing off a flowing five-man move 17 seconds later, by firing home a scissor kick at the near post. There was no chance for the Italian keeper Buffon.
A perfect result for the Dutch football fans.
For the first time in 30 years the Dutch football team has been beating Italy in an important football match. This football match meant a lot for the fans because the Dutch team and Sneijder played the football the fans will like to see, entertaining and a lot of goals. Sneijder played a perfect game making a goal and 1 assist.
