As part of their Euro 2012 preparations, the Dutch national team opened the Orange Cruyff Court in the sleepy Polish town of Bronowice on Tuesday.

The Krakow Court was funded “out of the players’ own pockets,” according to the Dutch press statement, as the Oranje squad “wished to leave a tangible legacy to the local community and offer children a safe spot close to home where they can play football.”

The highlight of the event was a football match involving local kids and members of the Dutch national side, and the standout moment was a comedy foul by Nigel de Jong against a small, speedy youngster.
