Man Utd No1 Van der Sar hints at Holland regret
As it turned out, the man who won a record 130 caps for the 'Oranje' watched the tournament at home, desperately wanting Holland to overcome Spain in the final, whilst knowing there would have been a nagging knot in his stomach if Giovanni van Bronkhorst and his men had come through.
"You make a decision in life, sometimes you go back on it and sometimes you stay with it," he reflected.
"I would have been really happy if Holland had won the World Cup but I suppose then I would have missed something on my list. But I have achieved a few other things so I cannot complain."
