NETHERLANDS 2-1 MEXICO

The Dutch produced a late come back to rescue their World Cup dreams and eventually deny Mexico a spot in the final eight with a late penalty.

The Mexicans could not believe what happened as they were ‘robbed’ of their victory by Robben in the dying minutes of the game as far as they were concerned.

Dos Santos 22 yard strike goal early in the second half would have been enough to see the Mexicans through, until the Dutch equalized courtesy of a stunning strike from Wesley Sneijder in the 88th minute.

Deep into stoppage time, Robben was awarded a controversial penalty that substitute Klaas Jan Huntelaar converted to make it 2-1.
