The fourth day of the World Cup (all coverage) continues Monday with the Danish-Dutch rivalry starting the day.

MONDAY (June 14):

The best team to play today is the Netherlands, which ESPN’s World Soccer Index ranks No. 5 worldwide. With Robin van Persie, Arjen Robben, and Wesley Sniejder, the Netherlands has an attacking triumvirate to rival No. 1 Brazil and No. 4 Argentina, says Africa Monitor writer Steve Bloomfield. "If all three can keep fit for the duration of the tournament, this could be Holland's moment."
