Oribe Peralta, Hello and welcome to today's full match replay, one of

:00:28.:00:35.

the last 16 games for you. This is Holland against Mexico in the

:00:36.:00:43.

boiling hot sun with Steve Bower. The Netherlands have increased the

:00:44.:00:46.

level of expectation that was in place before the tournament have

:00:47.:00:51.

begun, now they have to manage it as they face a Mexico side dreaming of

:00:52.:00:55.

finally reaching the last eight again, having fallen at this hurdle

:00:56.:00:58.

in each of their last five World Cup appearances. Louis Van Gaal is able

:00:59.:01:03.

to recall Robin Van Persie after suspension. He and Arjen Robben have

:01:04.:01:05.

three goals each already. Mexico are Jose Vazquez, who is suss

:01:06.:01:37.

peppeded. -- US pended. Salcido -- who is suspended. Salcido comes in.

:01:38.:02:05.

It is Mexico that get just the second ever World Cup meeting

:02:06.:02:15.

between these two nations under way in the searing heat in north-east

:02:16.:02:21.

Brazil. The last one back in France 1998 ended as a draw. We must have a

:02:22.:02:30.

winner today, one way or another. Mexico with the joint best defence

:02:31.:02:35.

in the group stages against the Netherlands, the top scorers in the

:02:36.:02:37.

group stages. Dirk Kuyt, who is earning his 100th

:02:38.:02:52.

cap, continuing in the left-wing back position for the Netherlands

:02:53.:02:53.

today. It will be fascinating to see how

:02:54.:03:07.

the Dutch can perform in these conditions. 30 degrees pitchside.

:03:08.:03:14.

68% humidity. No problems for the Mexicans. A couple of their players

:03:15.:03:21.

were in the warm up in long sleeves. Keeping the ball, you sense, will be

:03:22.:03:22.

so important in this one. Verhaegh, what a day for him, 30

:03:23.:03:36.

years of age, his third international cap at right-wing

:03:37.:03:40.

back. Kuyt couldn't keep that one in.

:03:41.:04:08.

Layun had the Dods have a try. -- had the confidence to have a try.

:04:09.:04:21.

He's scored two international goals. Fantastic atmosphere inside this

:04:22.:04:33.

stadium. I have to tell you it's more or less

:04:34.:04:38.

like a Mexico home gamement That was -- home game.

:04:39.:05:04.

De Guzman not fit enough to return to the centre of the midfield.

:05:05.:05:13.

The cross was too strong for Van Persie.

:05:14.:05:22.

Louis Van Gaal was talking at length yesterday about these conditions. He

:05:23.:05:30.

said that his players will lose four litres of fluid, that equates to

:05:31.:05:40.

four kilograms in 90 minutes. His team selection and his

:05:41.:05:45.

substitutes will bear that in mind. 1pm kickoff local timement

:05:46.:05:48.

-- time. Herrera has impressed many at this

:05:49.:06:14.

tournament so far. He's still going. The Porto midfielder. He's picked

:06:15.:06:19.

out Layun. He's trying his luck again. Willing

:06:20.:06:29.

to put it on his right foot. His previous effort unable to find the

:06:30.:06:33.

target, but Hector Herrera, who's had one season at Porto, much talked

:06:34.:06:38.

about, was at the beginning of all that.

:06:39.:07:28.

Van Persie challenged by Moreno and unfairly. Netherlands free kick.

:07:29.:07:36.

The referee is from Portugal and vastly experienced. # he refereed

:07:37.:07:44.

the last final of a major tournament in Euro 2012. Of course, the Dutch

:07:45.:07:52.

failed to win a game. It's been a good turn around so far in that

:07:53.:07:55.

two-year span for Louis Van Gaal. How is he going to end his period in

:07:56.:08:00.

charge, his second period in charge of the national team before he heads

:08:01.:08:02.

to Manchester United? Difficult for Kuyt to bring under

:08:03.:08:24.

control. Mexico have been so well organised defensively.

:08:25.:08:31.

Can they contain the top scorers in the group stages?

:08:32.:08:56.

He didn't make the best of contact, but he got away with it. The

:08:57.:09:04.

25-year-old goalkeeper had read the situation and just about got enough

:09:05.:09:10.

on it. Frustration for Aguilar as he's penalised. A free kick to the

:09:11.:09:12.

Netherlands. That's another Netherlands free

:09:13.:09:46.

kick. He will be the one man that Mexico are most concerned with given

:09:47.:09:49.

his performances in Brazil so far. Plenty of options for the

:09:50.:10:29.

Netherlands. It's delivered by Wesley Sneijder. Headed away by

:10:30.:10:31.

Moreno. There's an early blow for the

:10:32.:10:59.

Netherlands. Nigel De Jong is forced off through injury. That's inside

:11:00.:11:04.

nine minutes. The AC Milan and former Manchester City midfielder,

:11:05.:11:07.

such an important cog in the Dutch wheel. He's replaced by Bruno

:11:08.:11:13.

Martins Indi, who is back himself having suffered concussion in their

:11:14.:11:18.

second match against Australia. A slight reorganisation there for the

:11:19.:11:19.

Dutch now. Daley Blind will go into a holding

:11:20.:11:28.

midfield role and Martins Indi on the left side of the back three.

:11:29.:11:33.

midfield role and Martins Indi on Mexico currently waiting to get

:11:34.:11:35.

Guardado back into the game. They're temporarily back to ten. They're

:11:36.:11:39.

frustrated that the officials aren't allowing him back on the pitch.

:11:40.:11:45.

Blind is now playing in his third position of the tournament.

:11:46.:11:53.

That misplaced pass will allow Guardado to come back on.

:11:54.:13:38.

Six of the ten the Dutch scored in their route

:13:39.:14:13.

Baking hot day in north-east resilience. As you can see, very

:14:14.:14:27.

little shade inside the stadium. Very difficult to catch your breath

:14:28.:14:34.

down there. As much as a challenge for the Dutch to date facing this

:14:35.:14:42.

confident Mexican team. Dos Santos waiting in the centre. It will not

:14:43.:14:43.

reach him. Teasing cross. Dos Santos was the

:14:44.:15:22.

closest to it. Really positive play from Layun. Dos Santos could not get

:15:23.:15:33.

close enough to it. What an invitation that was that somebody in

:15:34.:15:38.

the Mexico team. The Netherlands survive. Dos Santos again. Cleared

:15:39.:15:47.

by Kite. Mexico, who have only ever been to the quarterfinals twice.

:15:48.:15:54.

Both of them were in Mexico in 1970 and in 1986. But they are beginning

:15:55.:16:00.

to believe 2014 could be their year. Schneider has not been able to get

:16:01.:16:58.

on the ball so far. -- Wesley Schneider. Might be a Mexico brake

:16:59.:17:42.

on. Terrific defending from Marquez. Dutch throat. Thoreau.

:17:43.:18:44.

Found Dos Santos. Morale that... Herrera. You sense it was a let off

:18:45.:19:00.

for the Netherlands. It was a move of so much promise from Mexico. It

:19:01.:19:09.

looked as though Oribe Peralta was And very confident start from

:19:10.:19:45.

Mexico. No foul on parole tough. The referee has allowed play to

:19:46.:19:53.

continue. -- Oribe Peralta. Challenged by Rodriguez. Mexico have

:19:54.:20:05.

already played in this stadium. It was the day they kept a clean sheet

:20:06.:20:14.

and capped Brazil at bay. They know the surroundings and the conditions.

:20:15.:20:23.

Kite, assessing the options. Committed the foul, the Dutch

:20:24.:20:54.

captain. Pulled Marquez to the ground. More promising from the

:20:55.:21:05.

Netherlands. First time they have got in behind Mexico.

:21:06.:21:22.

Fabulous atmosphere inside this stadium. Inundated with Mexicans,

:21:23.:21:31.

what a brilliant piece of skill. Mexico feel there was an

:21:32.:21:36.

infringement. The Portuguese referee doesn't. It was the Herrera again.

:21:37.:21:48.

-- Hector Herrera. Got away from Vlaar. Can only expect a corner.

:21:49.:21:57.

Brilliant piece of skill prior to that. First corner of the game and

:21:58.:22:02.

will be taken by Giovanni Dos Santos for Mexico. Well defended from the

:22:03.:22:07.

Netherlands. Great first touch from her rarer.

:22:08.:22:30.

Vlaar was struggling. That is where the Aston Villa defender got to the

:22:31.:22:43.

ball first. He was at full stretch and had to get there. Unable to get

:22:44.:23:03.

any kind of angle on the header. Salcido. Played for four years in

:23:04.:23:25.

the Netherlands himself with VS Eindhoven.

:23:26.:24:01.

Looked as though the referee was going to blow. It is beginning to

:24:02.:24:08.

open up, this game. Herrera for Mexico. Dispossessed by Kuyt.

:24:09.:24:37.

Mexico who have lost three and drawn one of their last meetings with the

:24:38.:24:48.

Netherlands. Certainly showing they are not afraid of them.

:24:49.:24:59.

Been allowed to continue. Moreno has seen the gap again.

:25:00.:25:26.

Decent possession again from Mexico. Salcido, from a long way out. Almost

:25:27.:25:42.

caught Cillessen by surprise. He had to make sure with two hands. Corner

:25:43.:25:49.

to Mexico. Before Herrera takes this, the

:25:50.:26:14.

reparation's official is concerned about a head wound or something in

:26:15.:26:29.

his eye. Finally Herrera can deliver the corner.

:26:30.:26:45.

Might have even clipped off the head of Kuyt. In fact, it did.

:26:46.:27:11.

They have already lost Nigel De Jong. I hope he is OK to continue.

:27:12.:27:35.

Rafael Marquez, what a career he has had. Sneijder coming deeper. The

:27:36.:28:33.

Dutch will want to see him on the ball a little bit more often. The

:28:34.:28:43.

Galatasaray player is playing his 15th game for the Netherlands.

:28:44.:28:50.

Brilliant first touch. Second one off target. That is why you cannot

:28:51.:28:58.

relaxed when he is around. The angle was always against him and he was

:28:59.:29:02.

off balance. Did Lillian Lee to get it under control. -- did

:29:03.:29:08.

brilliantly. Peralta is still going. Then Dos

:29:09.:30:04.

Santos. Comfortable for Cillessen. A comfortable save for Jasper

:30:05.:30:22.

Cillessen in the Netherlands goal. Despite getting the Netherlands out

:30:23.:30:42.

of the group in spectacular style, Louis Van Gaal still has his critics

:30:43.:30:46.

back home. He's been box office, Miguel

:30:47.:31:04.

Herrera, talk about wearing your heart on your sleeve. This is his

:31:05.:31:09.

very first experience of a World Cup. Is it going to extend beyond

:31:10.:31:10.

this game? In these conditions you do not want

:31:11.:32:17.

to be giving away possession cheaply.

:32:18.:32:51.

It wasn't the ball that Kuyt wanted. He retrieved the situation, though.

:32:52.:32:58.

It's the longest period of possession in a while for the

:32:59.:33:00.

Netherlands. It's now Mexico who can't clear

:33:01.:33:24.

their lines. There was an infringement. Because of the heat

:33:25.:33:35.

which has risen has indicated a drinks cooling break. Which I'm sure

:33:36.:33:44.

all those players out there will be hugely greatful for. We thought it

:33:45.:33:46.

might be more of a regular occurrence in this tournament,

:33:47.:33:51.

certainly on this north-east coast, in the afternoon heat, it's one that

:33:52.:33:57.

is a sensible option. It's certainly one that's required. As I say, Louis

:33:58.:34:03.

Van Gaal saying yesterday that they estimate four litres of fluid will

:34:04.:34:08.

be lost in 90 minutes, which equates to four kilos. It gives them the

:34:09.:34:13.

opportunity to speak to the players as well.

:34:14.:34:32.

Every method possible being used to rehydrate those players at the

:34:33.:34:52.

moment. And supporters, alike. Nothing to choose between these two

:34:53.:35:40.

nations so far in the opening 33 minutes. The Dutch have had more

:35:41.:35:49.

possession. The Mexicans are out in force here. It's a wash of green

:35:50.:35:53.

around this stadium. Little pockets of orange. The Mexicans hoping that

:35:54.:36:03.

this will be the day that they can finally reach the last eight once

:36:04.:36:05.

again. The World Cup cooling break is

:36:06.:36:18.

complete. And the first half is ready for

:36:19.:36:32.

resumption. Not a cloud in the sky. No question

:36:33.:36:51.

the conditions are a big factor in the outcome of this match, certainly

:36:52.:36:52.

in terms of the European nation. He made his debut a year ago, began

:36:53.:37:59.

his season as second choice for Ajax, let alone number one for the

:38:00.:38:05.

Netherlands. Miguel Herrera will be pleased with

:38:06.:38:11.

his team's performance so far. He's already reached the target set by

:38:12.:38:14.

his employers before a ball was kicked.

:38:15.:38:18.

You just get the feel there might be an outlet for Mexico down the left

:38:19.:39:05.

side. Verhaegh is inexperienced at international level.

:39:06.:40:08.

Better possession from the Netherlands.

:40:09.:40:20.

They certainly have players capable of a moment, a flash of individual

:40:21.:40:26.

brilliance. You can see in the stadium,

:40:27.:40:53.

spectators are leaving the seats in the sun and moving backwards to the

:40:54.:40:58.

ones in the shade, such is the searing heat inside this stadium.

:40:59.:41:02.

People are struggling to watch it, let alone play in it.

:41:03.:41:12.

Dirk Kuyt did enough. Goal kick to the Netherlands.

:41:13.:41:20.

Just looked for a moment he had a yard on Kuyt.

:41:21.:41:56.

The Dutch moving into the pockets of space where they can potentially

:41:57.:42:03.

hurt Mexico. Robben, they've marshalled him well

:42:04.:42:05.

enough so far. The Dutch have had to tailor their

:42:06.:42:29.

game. It will have to be a more measured

:42:30.:42:43.

approach today. There's the deepest of deep

:42:44.:42:50.

thinkers. After almost 41 minutes of this

:42:51.:43:00.

game, the Netherlands have their first corner.

:43:01.:43:57.

Dos Santos... Doubt by Cillessen. Said you would expect him to make,

:43:58.:44:09.

which he did with his leg. Van Percie at the other end. Only Robben

:44:10.:44:17.

up with him. Still van Percie. He talked on one too many. -- tug on.

:44:18.:44:34.

Dos Santos. He was fouled and did not like it. He reacted, Giovani dos

:44:35.:44:48.

Santos. The Portuguese referee arrived quickly to defuse the

:44:49.:45:04.

situation. Here is the challenge. This is the opportunity. It was a

:45:05.:45:09.

tight angle. Cillessen stood up at his near post to keep him out.

:45:10.:45:47.

De Vrij for the Netherlands. Kuyt is off and running.

:45:48.:46:13.

The Dutch supporters that have been able to get here today, little

:46:14.:46:21.

pockets of orange around the stadium are not seeing the same

:46:22.:46:29.

swashbuckling football in these conditions. So much at stake now.

:46:30.:46:42.

Finalists of four years ago. Three times World Cup finalists. How long

:46:43.:46:50.

will this year's adventure go? Lovely little touch from Peralta.

:46:51.:46:56.

Inadvertently it came to Dos Santos. Decent try.

:46:57.:47:08.

With the injuries and the cooling break there will be four minutes to

:47:09.:47:17.

add on at the end of this first half. Some enjoying the 30 degrees

:47:18.:47:31.

heat more than others. Marquez didn't get there. Van Percie

:47:32.:48:41.

is onto it. Can Robben get there. What a recovery from Marquez. Robben

:48:42.:48:48.

appealing but that was a fabulous challenge by Rafael Marquez. How it

:48:49.:49:03.

needed to be. That was nearly a costly mistake punished. It was up

:49:04.:49:13.

football from Rodriguez. Marquez was never getting there. Watch Marquez

:49:14.:49:23.

now. Did not dive in. Moreno made the challenge. From that angle it

:49:24.:49:38.

looked as though Moreno's trailing leg caught Robben. Rodriguez, the

:49:39.:49:50.

first challenge and then the second one. He didn't get the ball. Robben

:49:51.:50:03.

appeals for everything, but on that occasion, you can understand it. I

:50:04.:50:14.

hope Moreno is OK to continue. An important part of the back three.

:50:15.:50:28.

hope Moreno is OK to continue. An Robben still discussing the

:50:29.:50:39.

incident. It looks as though Moreno's day is over. He made the

:50:40.:50:54.

challenge and is in discomfort. A player that Louis van Gaal knows

:50:55.:50:58.

extremely well. He won the Dutch title under him, Moreno. It looks

:50:59.:51:05.

like Mexico, like the Netherlands in this first half will be forced into

:51:06.:51:07.

a change. That is the last action of a

:51:08.:51:44.

goalless first half in this searing heat. Arjen Robben involved at the

:51:45.:51:52.

end of it with that incident in the penalty area. He appealed for a

:51:53.:51:56.

penalty and the referee said no. Mexico breathed a huge sigh of

:51:57.:51:58.

relief. Hector Moreno unable to play any

:51:59.:52:21.

further part for Mexico. Half-time substitution sees Diego Reyes

:52:22.:52:40.

young-macro. -- Reyes. It will be the three times World Cup

:52:41.:52:44.

finalists, the Netherlands to get is underway in the second half. Having

:52:45.:52:49.

to overcome the heat and Mexico in the second 45 minutes. No changes

:52:50.:52:56.

from them at half-time after having to make one enforced change with the

:52:57.:53:01.

loss of de Jong in the first half. Some of the stadium is in the shade

:53:02.:53:41.

and now. The only time they have met at World Cup level was in 98 and the

:53:42.:54:07.

Mexicans were 2-0 down in the group stage and came back to draw 2-2.

:54:08.:54:11.

Foul on Peralta. Diego Reyes of Porto. Peralta just

:54:12.:54:39.

couldn't get it under control. Blind got the effort in. Dos Santos,

:54:40.:55:34.

less than three minutes into the second half, breaks the deadlock.

:55:35.:55:41.

His first goal of the tournament. Has given Mexico the lead. To

:55:42.:55:48.

increase the level of noise in this stadium. The former Tottenham

:55:49.:56:02.

player, with the sweet strike to beat Cillessen. It came out of the

:56:03.:56:14.

air. The first touch off his chest and the second one was inch perfect.

:56:15.:56:21.

Blind tried to stop it. He couldn't. Cillessen and couldn't. Dos Santos

:56:22.:56:36.

has his 16th international goal. Miguel Herrera jumping for joy

:56:37.:56:39.

again. It means absolutely everything to him. This nation who

:56:40.:56:48.

were in disarray in qualifying have found their feet in Brazil and now

:56:49.:56:52.

they lead the Netherlands in the knockout stages 1-0. The group stage

:56:53.:57:06.

top scorers need a goal. Really good hit from Dos Santos. Cillessen died

:57:07.:57:12.

to his left ankle not get anywhere near it. It just nestle sweetly into

:57:13.:57:22.

the bottom corner. -- and could not. He has a World Cup goal for the

:57:23.:57:31.

first time in his career. Two disallowed in the opening group game

:57:32.:57:36.

against Cameroon. He might just have scored when it really matters.

:57:37.:57:48.

Mexico have the free kick. And the thousands and thousands of Mexican

:57:49.:57:51.

supporters in this stadium are up on their feet as Herrera delivers

:57:52.:57:55.

this. It was Marquez, the captain, with the header. Could not guide it

:57:56.:58:11.

under the crossbar. Even aided the attentions of Blind. Will not tire

:58:12.:58:21.

of seeing that again. What is the reaction of the finalists of four

:58:22.:58:22.

years ago? An immediate response from the

:58:23.:00:14.

Dutch. The wall did its job to deny Sneijder.

:00:15.:00:55.

Netherlands corner. First appearance at the World Cup,

:00:56.:01:03.

on at halftime. Dos Santos with the goal. It meensz

:01:04.:02:10.

the Dutch have to score -- means the Dutch have to score.

:02:11.:02:24.

Louis Van Gaal is preparing a change for the Netherlands.

:02:25.:02:32.

It is the youngster Depay, who's had such an effect. This is Peralta!

:02:33.:02:39.

Good effort. Kept out by Cillessen. It's a free kick to Mexico. That is

:02:40.:03:04.

the cue for the Dutch change. Louis Van Gaal must turn to be 20-year-old

:03:05.:03:10.

Memphis Depay once again. Twice off the bench in this World Cup and

:03:11.:03:14.

twice with a goal. No player has done that three times

:03:15.:03:20.

at any World Cup Finals. The Dutch would love him to do that now. Paul

:03:21.:03:27.

Verhaegh is the one sacrificed. He's had some impact, the 20-year-old

:03:28.:03:33.

from PSV Eindhoven. Against Australia and also against Chile.

:03:34.:03:38.

Can he have an impact against Mexico?

:03:39.:04:04.

The cross wasn't what they were looking for but it still needed

:04:05.:04:09.

dealing with by Reyes. Nedge land corner.

:04:10.:04:14.

-- Netherlands corner. Robben keen to take it quickly. Oh,

:04:15.:04:23.

an inviting one! How did that not go in? That was astonishing.

:04:24.:04:34.

Good response from the Dutch to going behind. It's a Mexico throw,

:04:35.:05:18.

though. Just watch this. De Vrij came in and

:05:19.:05:30.

April April somehow with the reflexes -- April April -- Achoa,

:05:31.:05:39.

somehow with the reflexes and to deny the Dutch an equaliser.

:05:40.:06:41.

Astonish Astonishing stop from Achoa. It's onto the post and it

:06:42.:06:56.

didn't cross the line. Completely different tempo about

:06:57.:07:27.

this side now. Robben tried to set up Wesley

:07:28.:07:45.

Sneijder. Deflected. Netherlands corner.

:07:46.:08:12.

Dos Santos, the goal scorer is coming off. And Aquino is going to

:08:13.:08:21.

replace him. He wouldn't have been in the squad at all, but for

:08:22.:08:31.

LuisMontez breaking his leg in a warm-up gamement -- game. Fresh legs

:08:32.:08:37.

for Mexico. Here comes the Dutch corner.

:08:38.:08:39.

Off the head of Rodriguez. They've been fabulously supported

:08:40.:09:18.

throughout this tournament, Mexico. They have a huge national obsession

:09:19.:09:22.

with the so-called fifth game in the World Cup Finals. It's this hurdle,

:09:23.:09:27.

the fifth one. They can't get to it. Each of the last five tournaments,

:09:28.:09:33.

the last 16 has proved a hurdle too far.

:09:34.:09:39.

Could this be the year to change all that? It's been dominating the

:09:40.:09:45.

Mexican headlines before this game. They seem to have stunned the Dutch

:09:46.:09:47.

into action here. Sneijder, the team that scored ten

:09:48.:09:52.

goals in the group stages. Such a proud footballing nation.

:09:53.:10:27.

Their 15th World Cup. Is this one going to carry on?

:10:28.:10:37.

That was almost the ball that Sneijder was looking for.

:10:38.:10:46.

He timed his run, got away from his man. He couldn't get there on the

:10:47.:10:50.

stretch, Wesley Sneijder. Fabulous vision from Robben.

:10:51.:10:55.

He knew Sneijder was running into it and there's the little look.

:10:56.:11:31.

Another super block by Marquez: Another Netherlands corner.

:11:32.:12:02.

Achoa has only conceded one goal at this tournament so far.

:12:03.:12:08.

Louis Van Gaal knows it needs to change.

:12:09.:12:16.

That was a consolation goal by Croatia in the last group game.

:12:17.:12:35.

Netherlands free kick. The Mexicans skippered being chased

:12:36.:13:14.

by van Percie. Peralta was offside. He was close.

:13:15.:13:46.

Early flag and whistle. Lovely little run from Javier Aquino, the

:13:47.:14:00.

substitute. The Dutch are searching for their equaliser once more.

:14:01.:14:30.

Depay beaten to it. Robben. He went down. The referee is only ten years

:14:31.:14:52.

ago -- ten yards away and had a good look at that. Goalkick. Taking on

:14:53.:15:10.

two defenders. He wasn't going to get a penalty for that. Layun on the

:15:11.:15:19.

floor. A little desperate from Arjen Robben.

:15:20.:15:31.

Out of play by Depay. Scored against Spain. Denied in this game by Ochoa

:15:32.:15:40.

and then the post. Peralta's touch. Sneijder. That was

:15:41.:16:07.

late on to play by Aguilar. The first yellow card of the game.

:16:08.:16:18.

Aguilar has already had one in the tournament. It is a costly one if

:16:19.:16:24.

they do go through. He will not play in the quarterfinal. Sent off in the

:16:25.:16:30.

play-off to get here against New Zealand. He will now face a

:16:31.:16:33.

suspension if they do carry on this adventure.

:16:34.:16:43.

Sneijder with the delivery. Comfortably headed away by Herrera.

:16:44.:17:15.

Kuyt delivered that. Headed behind by Reyes. The Netherlands's sixth

:17:16.:17:34.

corner in this half alone. Ochoa got something on it.

:17:35.:17:45.

Inside the last 20 minutes. The Dutch are rampant. So impressive in

:17:46.:18:00.

the group stages. Needing a goal but will have to maintain concentration

:18:01.:18:01.

at the other end as well. No flag. Herrera is still full of

:18:02.:18:35.

running. Once again, it was a teasing cross. Nowhere near Peralta

:18:36.:18:39.

in the end. Good enough from Ochoa. De Vrij.

:18:40.:19:18.

Kuyt's 100 will not be a memorable one as it stands. More frustration

:19:19.:19:31.

for the Netherlands. Only got five goals four years ago. Unable to open

:19:32.:19:42.

his account in this tournament as yet.

:19:43.:19:55.

Mexico are about to introduce the inevitable substitution. Manchester

:19:56.:20:04.

United's have ear Hernandez. Forward from Rodriguez. Away by de

:20:05.:20:43.

Vrij. Aguilar. Given away by Herrera. Long and hopeful from Kuyt.

:20:44.:20:56.

Too long for Robben. Peralta. This is Robben. He is round

:20:57.:21:21.

Marquez. Arjen Robben denied by Ochoa. Corner to the Netherlands.

:21:22.:21:37.

Turning up the temperature. Here comes the inevitable introduction.

:21:38.:21:44.

Just watch Robben skip past Marquez as if he wasn't there. Tight angle

:21:45.:21:53.

and Ochoa wasn't going to be beaten. Here comes the inevitable

:21:54.:21:58.

substitution of Hernandez to replace Peralta. The touch of irony is, he

:21:59.:22:08.

could be about to help his new club manager start work earlier than he

:22:09.:22:18.

wants to. Hernandez, a goal-scorer against Croatia last time out, on to

:22:19.:22:23.

defend this corner which is headed over by Vlaar. The Aston Villa

:22:24.:22:29.

player could not get over that. He only ever scored once for his

:22:30.:22:37.

country. Fabulous skill from Robben. The Dutch will need more of this in

:22:38.:22:49.

the last quarter of an hour. Denied by Ochoa. Robin van Persie off.

:22:50.:23:05.

Klaas-Jan Huntelaar is on. Huntelaar's first appearance in this

:23:06.:23:12.

tournament but his second World Cup. Scored against Cameroon four

:23:13.:23:16.

years ago and with 15 minutes to go we will have our second cooling

:23:17.:23:22.

break of the game. In front of a crowd of almost 60,000. Robben, now

:23:23.:23:31.

the Dutch captain. It is now or never for the Netherlands.

:23:32.:23:40.

Magnificent atmosphere. This stadium is preparing to host

:23:41.:23:47.

Magnificent atmosphere. This stadium Colombia in the quarterfinals. --

:23:48.:23:52.

Brazil. One more message to be introduced by Louis van Gaal. Will

:23:53.:23:56.

he be heading to Manchester earlier than he wanted to? That is the man

:23:57.:24:06.

they have got to beat. Only one player has managed it in the

:24:07.:24:15.

tournament so far. Mexico on the verge of a huge World Cup moment.

:24:16.:24:28.

What a save that was from Ochoa. That could be a defining moment.

:24:29.:24:40.

There was no way he was prepared to be beaten thereby Robben, either. --

:24:41.:24:53.

there by. What a story this could be.

:24:54.:25:29.

Refuelled and ready to go. It is a colourful occasion. It will be a

:25:30.:25:34.

memorable occasion if it stays this way.

:25:35.:26:06.

Still so don't try to dance his way through. The effort in the end did

:26:07.:26:32.

not match the run. -- Sal Sydow. It looks as though he has never been

:26:33.:26:38.

away from international foot ball. He got right underneath that one.

:26:39.:26:53.

The 34-year-old. -- Carlos Salcido. Kino, trying to use his pace again.

:26:54.:27:06.

Taken out by Bruno Martins Indi. It wasn't subtle. He wanted further

:27:07.:27:13.

punishment. Kino did well to keep that in. --

:27:14.:27:27.

Javier Aquino. Dos Santos has got the goal. He can

:27:28.:28:03.

only look on to see if it is enough. Miguel Herrera has been told to calm

:28:04.:28:15.

down either Portuguese referee. Final warning, otherwise he will

:28:16.:28:23.

have to leave the technical area. Every football fan loves to see his

:28:24.:28:29.

enthusiasm. If they score again, he might just run out of the stadium.

:28:30.:28:55.

The Dutch going a little more direct.

:28:56.:30:20.

Can the free-scoring Dutch break this team town, who have been so

:30:21.:30:28.

solid defensively in this tournament.

:30:29.:31:05.

The Netherlands in need of a hero to step up to the plate.

:31:06.:31:21.

We're into double figures for the corner count in this second half for

:31:22.:31:35.

the Netherlands. Can they find a goal?

:31:36.:31:49.

Huntelaar - he was offside. It wouldn't have counted any way.

:31:50.:31:59.

The flag was up early from the assistant.

:32:00.:32:08.

When Kuyt touches this, there's two of them off. One of them was

:32:09.:32:13.

Huntelaar. Ochoa didn't know that. It was a terrific save from the

:32:14.:32:20.

Mexican goalkeeper any way. You just wonder if the Netherlands

:32:21.:32:26.

are going to beat that man at all. Then they will start one huge party.

:32:27.:33:25.

Is this team going to stop the free-scoring Dutch? It would be a

:33:26.:33:30.

surprise inclusion in the last eight.

:33:31.:33:35.

The so-called fifth game of a World Cup Finals, which has become a

:33:36.:33:40.

national obsession in Mexican football. Each time they've got

:33:41.:33:45.

close, each time they've failed to get there. They're really close to

:33:46.:33:47.

getting there now. Those in orange seeking inspiration.

:33:48.:34:02.

And intervention. Time is ticking away from the Netherlands.

:34:03.:34:30.

Another corner for the Netherlands. Soon er or later they have to make

:34:31.:34:35.

one count. Can they beat that man, Ochoa. He

:34:36.:34:43.

back pedestrian ad that time. Sneijder! They can. Wesley Sneijder,

:34:44.:34:52.

less than three minutes from Sneijder! They can. Wesley Sneijder,

:34:53.:35:00.

of the 90. He has rescued it for the Netherlands. The man who got five

:35:01.:35:06.

goals on their way to the final four years ago scores his first goal in

:35:07.:35:18.

Brazil to finally beat Ochoa. It sat up invitingly and he struck it

:35:19.:35:22.

perfectly. No chance for Ochoa that time. Wesley Sneijder, on his record

:35:23.:35:29.

15th appearance in a World Cup match, marks it with the equalising

:35:30.:35:32.

goal. Netherlands 1, Mexico 1. Their 11th goal of the tournament

:35:33.:35:43.

has kept their tournament alive. That's why special players are kept

:35:44.:36:25.

on the pitch. He's hardly been involved today Wesley Sneijder, but

:36:26.:36:28.

when it mattered he stepped up to the plate.

:36:29.:36:39.

Cap 103, which might just go another half an hour now.

:36:40.:36:52.

Depay taken out by Aguilar. Now it's a test for Mexico. They were so

:36:53.:36:58.

close, they could touch the quarter finals. But it's back at all square.

:36:59.:37:09.

The next figure is that of stoppage time, given injuries and another

:37:10.:37:14.

cooling break. How long is going to be added? It is

:37:15.:37:43.

going to be six more minutes. Are we in for late drama?

:37:44.:37:51.

Depay went for goal. He was blocked by Aguilar.

:37:52.:37:58.

Tremendous hit from Sneijder. Really sweet connection. Goalkeeper

:37:59.:38:06.

didn't move. What a big goal that is for the

:38:07.:38:07.

Dutch. We will turn the page shortly, what

:38:08.:38:15.

is in the next chapter of this game? Still plenty of time to come up with

:38:16.:38:58.

an opening. Again Robben goes down. This time the referee give it's!

:38:59.:39:06.

Penalty to the penalty. Yellow card to Marquez. He can't believe it.

:39:07.:39:18.

It's his second of the tournament. By Arjen Robben toyed with him,

:39:19.:39:22.

It's his second of the tournament. teased him, he was caught. There was

:39:23.:39:29.

contact, how much? Robben made the most of it. Marquez was nowhere near

:39:30.:39:37.

the ball. The Portuguese referee pointed straight to the spot.

:39:38.:39:51.

Guillermo Ochoa has been a hero throughout for Mexico. Can he be a

:39:52.:39:59.

hero for them again? What drama. It is going to be

:40:00.:40:15.

Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, the substitute, on for his first action of this

:40:16.:40:18.

World Cup, who assumes the responsibility. He's had a long,

:40:19.:40:22.

long wait for this penalty kick. A yellow card for Guardado in that

:40:23.:40:35.

as well for his protests. It means the wait is a touch longer. All

:40:36.:40:42.

Mexico can do now is pray that hunt doesn't score. We're in the 93rd

:40:43.:40:47.

minute. What a huge moment for Netherlands

:40:48.:40:54.

and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar. Here he comes. And scores! From one down,

:40:55.:41:02.

the Netherlands with just three minutes of stoppage time remaining

:41:03.:41:09.

lead 2-16789 Is the adventure of the losing finalists of four years ago

:41:10.:41:15.

going to continue in the quarter finals? Five minutes ago that looked

:41:16.:41:21.

an unlikely scenario, but Huntelaar kept his cool. He swept the penalty

:41:22.:41:26.

into the bottom corner. Ochoa the wrong way. You have to feel for

:41:27.:41:34.

Mexico. But the Netherlands have turned this round from one down to

:41:35.:41:37.

lead by 2-1. For the sixth successive tournament,

:41:38.:41:54.

are Mexico going to fall at this hurdle?

:41:55.:42:01.

Two goals in six incredible minutes have turned this game completely

:42:02.:42:04.

around. A little over a minute to try and

:42:05.:42:11.

rescue it for Mexico. They were reaching out and touching

:42:12.:42:27.

those quarter finals. Now they're going to be denied a place in them

:42:28.:42:30.

unless they can conjure something up in the one minute of stoppage time

:42:31.:42:32.

remaining. The Mexicans inside this stadium

:42:33.:42:55.

will be struggling to take this in. That was a defender's pass. That

:42:56.:43:37.

might just be that. There it is, the Netherlands three

:43:38.:44:12.

times World Cup finalists are into the last eight for the sixth time.

:44:13.:44:19.

It was six incredible minutes that got them there. 88 minutes gone,

:44:20.:44:25.

they were trailing by 1-0. Sneijder with the equaliser. The foul on

:44:26.:44:30.

Robben gave the penalty and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar is the hero.

:44:31.:44:37.

They've broken Mexican hearts, who were touching and reaching the last

:44:38.:44:41.

eight, but for their sixth successive World Cup Finals fall at

:44:42.:44:46.

this hurdle. Louis Van Gaal isn't travelling to Manchester just yet

:44:47.:44:49.

because the Netherlands are into the quarter finals. ( It's finished

:44:50.:44:58.

here, Netherlands 2, Mexico 1. So the Dutch left it late, but they

:44:59.:45:04.

go through and they'll play Costa Rica in the quarter finals another

:45:05.:45:07.

replay later on tonight, goodbye. But sometimes, something can happen

:45:08.:45:16.

that leaves you no choice
