The Netherlands was looking to redeem themselves after losing to Spain in the finals of the 2010 World Cup.
The Dutch got their revenge with a 5-1 smacking of the Spanish at the Arena Forte Nova in Salvador, Brazil during the second day of the 2014 World Cup.
Holland didn't play dirty in this matchup like they did four years ago in South Africa.
Instead, they went out and played fantastic football (soccer) that shows why they should be considered one of the top contenders to win the tournament.
The Spanish side struck first in the 15th minute after Xabi Alonzo scored on a penalty kick for a 1-0 lead.
It seemed as if Spain was going to carry the momentum into halftime with the lead.
However, the Netherlands had other ideas.
In the 44th minute, Daley Blind delivered a cross into the box where Robin Van Persie buried it with a beautiful header to equalize the game at 1.
