CRAZY call by Van Gaal to bring Huntelaar on - he didn't even take a penalty!

Krul definitely would've at least got a hand to some of the Argentine penalties.

10 Jul 00:49

Dutch coach Louis van Gaal's luck runs out as 'keeper Jasper Cillessen is still to save a penalty in his career!

10 Jul 00:45

10 Jul 00:38

Ok, here we go

Hopefully you're able to follow this and I'll promise to keep you posted as quick as possible...

10 Jul 00:36

DID YOU KNOW?

Only one team has won two penalty shootouts in a single Soccer World Cup (Argentina in 1990)

10 Jul 00:35

I wonder how much Louis van Gaal must be wishing right now he had Tim Krul available to reproduce his penalty heroics against Costa Rica

Suddenly Jasper Cillessen must be wishing he'd had the practice earlier in the tournament

10 Jul 00:33

PENALTY TIME IN SAO PAULO

0-0 after extra-time

Who'll be a hero tonight? Jasper Cillessen for the Netherlands or Argentina's Sergio Romero?

10 Jul 00:31

130' - We're seconds away from penalties...

10 Jul 00:29
WHAT A MISS!
10 Jul 00:28

INTERESTING FACT

There hasn't been a penalty shootout in a Soccer World Cup semi-final since the Netherlands lost to Brazil in 1998

10 Jul 00:28

125' - THE BEST CHANCE OF THE MATCH!

Rodrigo Palacio fails to score as he heads the ball straight at Dutch 'keeper Cillessen

10 Jul 00:23

120' - Long-range effort from De Vrij goes wide of the Argentine goal

Both teams look to be happy to settle for the lottery of a penalty shootout

#valueformoney

10 Jul 00:20

117' - Pablo Zabaleta goes down under a heavy tackle from Dirk Kuyt

That actually looked sore...

10 Jul 00:19

116' - Holland haven't scored of conceded since Klaas-Jan Huntelaar's late penalty against Mexico in their group match

Seems like an age ago...

10 Jul 00:18
THE SECOND PERIOD OF EXTRA-TIME BEGINS!
10 Jul 00:15

FIRST PERIOD OF EXTRA-TIME ENDS

Still tied at 0-0

15 minutes away from penalties...

10 Jul 00:14

115'+ - One minute of extra-time after the first period of extra-time

You know what I mean...

10 Jul 00:13

115' - YELLOW card for Klaas-Jan Huntelaar

Not ideal...

10 Jul 00:10

113' - First period of extra-time passing by in a flash

10 Jul 00:08

100' - Argentina now make their third and final change

Ezequiel Lavezzi OFF, replaced by Maxi Rodriguez

10 Jul 00:08
99' - Robben lets rip from distance, but easily saved by 'keeper Sergio Romero
