Details of today’s Uruguay-Netherlands semifinal, Work productivity suffering during World Cup,
When: :30 p.m. today • Where: Cape Town TV-radio: ESPN and KZNX-AM ( 530), KWNX-AM ( 260) Netherlands: The Oranje have style and flair, but they haven’t blown people away. Yet the fourth-ranked Dutch are the only team to win all five of their matches. Midfielder Wesley Sneijder is the big star. He could use some finishing help from disappointing Robin van Persie. The Dutch will be without suspended right back Gregory van der Wiel and defensive midfielder Nigel de Jong.
Uruguay: La Celeste will rely even more on clever midfielder Diego Forlan because they have manpower problems for this one. Star scorer Luis Suarez drew a red card for knocking down Ghana’s potential winning shot with his arm in the final seconds of overtime. “Truth is, it was worth it,’’ Suarez said. Uruguay also might be without captain Diego Lugano (knee) and fellow defender Diego Godin (hamstring).
