World Cup 2010, Netherlands Vs. Uruguay: Giovani Van Bronckhorst Rocket Gives Dutch 1-0 Lead

Netherlands captain Giovani van Bronckhorst was given space from 28-yards out for a speculative shot, but hit perfectly against the upper part of the far post, the left back has put the Netherlands up 1-0 in the match's 20th minute.

The Dutch had strung together a number of passes about 35 yards from goal, working the ball from the right flank to the middle, where Demy de Zeeuw laid-off a simple pass to  the oncoming van Bronckhorst.  The left back put his left boot to the ball for a perfect goal, giving Holland the early lead.

The match is now in the 22nd minute, with the Netherlands up 1-0.
