Mission Impossible for Oranje on EURO 2012

Euro 2012

In a scene that does not bring back any memories of the World Cup the Dutch national football team embark on their new mission on EURO 2012. Oranje hopes lifting their second European Cup at the European Championships 2012 in Poland and Ukraine.

In comparison: almost 100,000 people in Soccer City saw Holland lose the final of the World Cup against Spain.

Attack may be the best form of defence for Holland after their coach Bert van Marwijk turned to an 18-year-old newcomer, Jetro Willems, to fill the troublesome left-back position. Van Marwijk can call on the leading scorers in the Premier League, Arsenal’s Robin van Persie, and in the Bundesliga, Schalke’s Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, and has a host of star names in midfield, but his defence is seen as a frail unit to put up against Portugal, Germany and Denmark in the group stage.

As well as Willems, who broke into PSV Eindhoven’s first team this season, Van Marwijk included the 21-year-old winger Luciano Narsingh, who helped make Heerenven’s Bas Dost the Dutch league’s top scorer. Willems will help to bolster the back line in front of Maarten Stekelenburg, who will have Swansea’s Michel Vorm and Tim Krul of Newcastle United competing for the goalkeeper’s jersey.

The Dutch went on after the World Cup tournament and started with the full score of 24 points from 8 matches in the UEFA Euro 2012 qualifying campaign.

In between the qualification matches, the team went on a trip to South America for rematches of the World Cup quarter and semi-finals against Brazil and Uruguay. Although the matches ended in draws, coach Bert van Marwijk saw it as “a good test for his players, to prove they were fit to overcome hostile circumstances also”. “It was a very useful experience,” Van Marwijk, “We could even have won these two matches and that is a compliment to the players.”

On 2 September 2011 the Netherlands defeated San Marino 11–0, their biggest ever victory.

On 6 September 2011, the Dutch defeated Finland 2–0, ensuring a place at the Euro 2012. Dutch will go to Euro 2012 to clinch 2nd European Champions crown as well.. GO.. ORANJE..!

What’s difference between Google images & Bing images..?

image

Bing’s image search once challenged Google, offering more features and a better design. With infinite scrolling and the ability to search for similar images, Bing was legitimately better than Google at image search just a few years ago. But since then, Google has closed the ground and made a lot of progress. Where do they stand now, and which should be your image search engine of choice?

Both Bing Images and Google Images are good enough for most users. You can’t go wrong with either one. But there’s one search engine that offers more features, a better design, and all-around superior results with less duplicates.

Comparing Results

As a quick test, I searched for “images” on both Bing Images & Google Images to compare the results. Bing Images returned decent results, but there were a few problems – it displayed a few duplicate images and some clip art-style images. It’s likely that people searching for this won’t want the clip art images.
