Holland [Netherlands] strong second half and two goals by man of the match, Wesley Sneijder, were enough for victory over world number one ranked Brazil [Brasil].
Holland really came alive in the final 45 minutes and played with passion while favored Brazil could not keep up after a terrific first fifteen minutes of the best match by far of this 2010 World Cup.
Just a brilliant match that will be talked about for a long time. Robinho’s first fifteen minutes. The Melo OG – own goal, off the kick by Sneijder.
The amazing designed corner kick :Robben- Kuyt – Sneijder. Maarten Stekelenburg’s save of a high / right , would be equalizer by Kaka.
With their fifth win in World Cup 2010 the Netherlands extend its team-record unbeaten streak to 24 games. The Dutch as a team haven’t lost since September 2008.
They advance to the semi-finals, most likely against Uruguay. This bodes well for Germany in their much anticipated quarterfinal with Argentina.
What a Game. It was a shame one team had to lose. The Oranje are very deserving winners and world #1 Brasil have been knocked out of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. Brazil will be the team to beat on home soil at the 2014 World Cup.
