How can you hate Van Persie? He's a fantastic player. He doesn't fall any time he's touched, and he's not a dirty player.
And Denmark were way outplayed. They got lucky at the no-call on the handball. Van Persie had that one awful, awful touch. Huntelaar should've finished that one time. Robben got unlucky with the shot off the post. The Netherlands don't have a very good defense though, but Denmark's goal was still lucky. A messed up cross which leads to a Danish player getting the ball on the run and shooting a bad shot between the goalies' legs? It was not a deserved goal.
Everything else you said was correct, except this. A deserved goal goes to the better team, who creates their chances off of good offensive play. Not a flopped cross from a Danish player who was constantly fucking up. It wasn't a Dutch mistake except maybe the slow reaction after the cross which gave the Danish player the chance to run. But their goal still came from a lucky play, even if the Dutch were still slow to react.
I get that scoring leads to winning, and the Dutch didn't do that, but I still will always support my Dutch team, and if any country in Europe deserves to win a big tournament, it's the Netherlands.
