Uruguay v. Netherlands

Uruguay has the longest national anthem of any country. Throughout the anthem, the people of Uruguay refer to themselves as the "Orientales." I find this fascinating.

Today, the Big Orange of the Netherlands will be taking on the sky blue of Uruguay. So it will be like watching UT play UNC.

The overwhelming majority of the crowd are pulling for the Dutch.
