The World Cup resumes this afternoon with the Netherlands and Uruguay doing battle in one of the semifinal matches.

Uruguay, still alive thanks to the "Hand of Suarez," will have its depth tested with a whole cast of starters unavailable for the match.

The Dutch, who battled back from a deficit to shock Brazil in the quarterfinals, are the favorites, as Wesley Sneijder and Arjen Robben look to bring the Oranje within reach of their first World Cup championship.

Here is Ives' Fox Soccer preview of the match. As you might expect, most people see the semifinal as a major mismatch.
