Dutch dreaming of cup glory

It is a moment many Dutch soccer fans have been waiting for their entire lives.

Despite not having played in a final since 1978, The Netherlands are heading back now after beating Uruguay 3-2 yesterday afternoon.

Around Ottawa, venues like the Sala San Marco and the Georgetown Pub were awash in orange as members of the local Dutch community cheered on their team.

Since the Uruguayan community in Ottawa is so small, there were no planned public gatherings for fans.
