It's international Redhead Days festival in the Netherlands next month and as a ranga myself (to use a slightly insulting-but-hilarious Aussie term) I think it only apt to comment on this clearly special event, created for the clearly special amongst us (apparently we make up just 1% of the world's population - most of whom are probably in Scotland).
Against the South American nation, 'SuperVan's' powers appeared to have completely deserted him. The 30-year-old failed to register a shot against Argentina... his decline in form will have United fans wondering whether Van Gaal can bring out the best in his compatriot when he takes over at Old Trafford.
Relative to pre-tournament expectations at least, these are dizzying heights for the Dutch. Even manager Louis van Gaal gave his side only a 20 per cent chance of making the quarter-finals and many tipped them to crash out of a tough group, but the Oranje have come through the tournament surpassing any realistic hopes they had harboured a month ago...
Only Lionel Messi has a better WhoScored rating than Robben at the World Cup so far... no player has created more clear-cut goalscoring chances than Robben... Despite rarely being mentioned in the same breath as Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo, the fact is the winger has earned the right to be spoken of on a similar level to the superstars of football.
Increasing evidence and scientific analysis is showing why these events are associated with human induced climate change. The related impacts are becoming more widespread and complex, affecting society from health issues to agriculture, from transportation to economics, and becoming more severe, long-lasting and costly with increasing frequency.
Football is a team game won by moments of individual genius - where players can turn from hero to villain in one moment of madness, change the future of a club with one kick of a ball and drift into the injured footballers void that surrounds the game. So why, when without the enforcer of these rules who make all competitiveness authentic, does the man in black become a figure of hate?
