World Cup: Netherlands leaves it late to beat Mexico

World Cup: Netherlands leaves it late to beat Mexico | FIFA World Cup - Brazil 2014 | Scoop.it
Better late than never.
Cristóbal Correa Ávila's insight:

Netherlands, the team who played the best football at the first stage, almost went home in this WC.  Mexico made a great match and if it wasn't for Robben, they could have been the rival of Costa Rica at Saturday.  2 minutes before to the match end, Sneijder capture a loose ball and scored a nice goal to put the 1-1. And at 93, after a great play by Robben, it was Huntelaar who changed the penalty for goal, and gave Netherlands the ticket to QF.
