The flying form of the Netherlands never really got off the ground Monday at the World Cup, even though the two-time finalists still managed to earn a 2-0 win over Denmark.
In the other Group E match, Keisuke Honda scored to lead Japan over Cameroon 1-0 in Bloemfontein.
Dirk Kuyt scored one goal for the Dutch, who came into the tournament in South Africa expecting to show the world how to play beautiful, free-slowing football.
But the other goal at Soccer City came off an unfortunate mishap when Denmark defender Simon Poulsen headed a ball off the back of teammate Daniel Agger and into the net.
