Netherlands go Orange ahead of World Cup semi final


400 Dutch football fans have paid some €2,000 for a last-minute trip to South Africa to watch the match.

The mini-break, an 11-hour flight, a day in Cape Town, a football match and an 11 hour flight back home, was sold out almost immediately when Oranje beat Brazil on Friday.

'I've spent nearly all my savings, but we are going to enjoy it,' one supporter told Nos tv. 'If you are a real fan, you've got the money,' said another. 'This is the first time in a long time we have a chance of winning the title. I really feel it could happen.'

Some 2,500 Dutch fans are expected to attend tonight's game, as are thousands of Dutch people who live in South Africa.
