EurO/T: GER -- NED

The showdown! Seriously, this could be the highest-stakes match of the first round. Netherlands badly need points; Portugal is in the process of upping the ante on the entire Doodse Groep, and Germany are sitting on a nice goal cushion, as always. I suppose the Dutch could squeak by with a draw and a thumping of Portugal, but I wouldn't count on that. Lineups (cribbed from last game; changes possibly coming):
