The Dutch kept up their sizzling form with a 3-0 hiding of Australia in the second match for both sides at the FIFA World Youth Championship Netherlands 2005.  The Australians simply had no answer for the smashing form of their hosts, roared on incessantly by a packed house at the Parkstad Limburg Stadium in Kerkrade. 
 
Switching positions from back to front and left to right, the hosts' whirl of positive movement must have brought many in the stands back, in spirit at least, to the Total Football salad days of the 1970s. 
 
Running the men from Down Under ragged in the early going, Utrecht's young spitfire Rick Kruys nearly gave the hosts their opener with a close-range header in minute 11.  All he got for his trouble, however, was a bump in the side as Mark Milligan cleared off the line without too much trouble.
 
Three minutes later, a brilliant bit of interplay between Ajax mates Ryan Babel and Urby Emanuelson nearly unlocked the Australian rearguard for a second time.  But keeper Adam Federici - who impressed mightily in the first match with Benin - was on the ball to dive away a searing drive from Babel.
 
He could do nothing about the resulting corner however.  Whipped in dangerously by new-man Emanuelson, Ajax midfielder and senior international Hedwiges Maduro rose highest to nod home from six yards (0:1, 20'). 
 
Seemingly content with having broken the deadlock, the air seemed to come out of the pretty orange party balloon as Australia began to see more-and-more of the ball.  Fearing a similar bout of complacency that allowed Japan back into the first match, Dutch boss Foppe de Haan was on his feet pleading loudly for concentration. 
 
"We dropped off after the first 15 minutes," said De Haan after the match regarded to dry patch. "We did not move well enough up front and we suffered for it."
 
Quincy Owusu Abeyie, switching to the right flank for a spell, obliged his coach with a startling bit of skill and an equally impressive cross in minute 40.  But Fulham striker Collins John - on for his first start of the finals - saw his free header hardly trouble the Aussie keeper.
 
And as a fitting orange sunset bathed the Kerkrade pitch, the half-time whistle went with Holland on the ascendancy and a goal to the good.
 
Dutchman Quincy Owusu Abeyie was a torment to the Australian defence all night.

It didn't take the hosts long to pick up the second half right where they left off in the first. Once again some brilliant approach play on the left from Owusu Abeyie led the way.  After some fancy tricks, the wide man laid a fine ball onto Emanuelson who hammered home emphatically at full stretch. (0:2, 46')
 
It was a piece of pure genius and a fitting 1500th goal in FIFA World Youth Championship history. 
 
The Aussies tried with all of their grit and endeavour to pull one back and make a game of it, but they lacked the final touch.  Stuart Musialik's try from 15 yards in minute 63 was a false dawn, slipping past Kenneth Vermeer's near post.
 
With Mexican waves working through the vibrant orange crowd, Owusu Abeyie's wicked strike in minute 68 nearly gave them something else to shout about.  But the valiant Federici managed to push it away. 
 
Just minutes later, though, the crowd were on their feet applauding a goal of the highest order.  From a Tim Vincken square ball, Kruys cracked a golden arrow to the top corner from 24 yards.  No goalkeeper in the world - at any age level - would have got a touch to it (0:3, 74').
 
The win sees the hosts assured of first-place in the group before they travel to Tilburg for their third match against second-place Benin on the 18 June. 
 
De Haan, despite having his doubts about the performance, was thrilled with the result. "Now that we have sealed top spot in the group, we are off for a celebratory drink…well, just me, not the boys," he remarked with a laugh.
