Which game? You mean Germany vs. Spain from earlier today, or Netherlands vs. Spain for the final?
It means that he was loyal in the Christian sense of ones duty to the magistrate, and only rebelled necessarily and regretfully, according to my reading.It is a beautiful anthem, but I've rarely heard the second verse sung anymore... the second verse was very popular back in the second world war, though. Also, he says that he is of "Duitsen" or "Germanic", blood, not "Dutch" as it is translated in the song on Youtube. Also, I've heard that the bit about being "loyal to the King of Spain" as being the first incident of sarcasm in a national anthem (since he was most certainly NOT loyal to the King of Spain, he was fighting him).
