Holland beats Mexico 2-1, scrapes through to quarterfinals

Holland joins Brazil and Colombia is the quarterfinal.


The Netherlands are through to the quarterfinals of the FIFA 2014 World Cup in Brazil after securing a late victory in their game against Mexico.

Late goals from Wesley Sneijder and Klaas Jan Huntelaar ensured that the Dutch, who trailed the Mexicans for the better part of the game, join Brazil and Colombia in the quarterfinal stage.

The Dutch who had recorded a 100% record in the group phase were made to sweat for the quarter final ticket as the Mexicans proved to be a hard nut to crack.

Giovanni Dos Santos had put the Mexicans ahead in the 48th minute. An attempt for Netherlands to come back was staunchly denied by goalkeeper Ochoa who made daring saves.
