Netherlands A Game Away From World Cup

April 24, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

As predicted two days ago, Netherlands emerged victorious in the first semifinal match of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. The Dutch defeated an undermanned but fighting Uruguay squad, 3-2.

Uruguay played without feared striker Luis Suarez who was suspended for a deliberate handball that denied Ghana a quarterfinals victory.

The Dutch held off a tough Uruguay team that was almost written off with the suspension of Suarez. By halftime the score was even, 1-1, and it seemed that the Dutch could not penetrate the Uruguay defense in the second half. Wesley Sneijder and Arjen Robben scored back-to-back goals just three minutes apart, the last goal scored by Robben in the 72nd minute. At that point, the Dutch have pretty much secured their spot in the World Cup final match.

Now that Netherlands has booked the first ticket to the World Cup finals, they have set up an all-European finals match on June 11.
