However, Netherlands finaly takes the lead on the 77th – minute mark as Leroy Fer of Norwich City lands a goal just right after replacing Wesley Sneijder.

Memphis Depay secures victory for the Dutch just right before the match comes to a halt, as he nets a close-range right-footed strike through a fast break delivered by Arjen Robben on the 90th – minute mark, scoring  2 – 0 for the Netherlands.

The Dutch currently has the top score in Group B with 9 points, while Chile follows with 6 points. Both teams advance to the second round of the tournament, eliminating Australia and Spain.

“It was a very good game to watch,” Robben said in a television interview following the game, as mentioned in CNN.He also adds: “There was a lot of passion on the pitch, we defended really well, I am proud of the way the team defended.”

“I think we did a great job and this is not where we want to stop. It is a fantastic result and a fantastic performance and we don’t want it to end here.”

Chile coach Jorge Sampaoli comments in BBC Sports: “I think that this was a match that we expected, with the Netherlands trying to use lots of people on the counter attack.”

“We looked for victory, we wanted to win and we couldn’t find a solution to a team that only defended and only aspired to long-range shots, not even counterattacks.”

Netherlands will soon face Mexico at Estadio Castelao in Fortaleza on June 29, Sunday.
