HALF TIME HOLLAND 0-0 CHILE: It's half time in Sao Paulo with Chile enjoying the better of the first 45 minutes, although Holland had a few chances on the break. It's still in the balance.

The action is up and running in Sao Paulo between two sides who have lit up this World Cup in Brazil so far. The Dutch are also out wearing their full orange strip for the first time with Chile all in white.
This game sees the two already qualified teams from Group B battle it out to finish top which will likely bring the added bonus of not having to face anticipated Group A winners and hosts Brazil in the last-16. Holland will fancy their chances as they have not lost a group game at a World Cup since 1994 and have only lost two of 11 outings against South American teams at World Cups and that was to Argentina in the 1978 final and Brazil in the 1994 quarter-finals. But Chile have performed well so far, particularly against Spain and have now won four of their last six World Cup matches and should not be underestimated.
Chile starting XI: Bravo, Mena, Isla, Silva, Sanchez, Vargas, Gutierrez, Medel, Jara, Aranguiz, Diaz.
