Dutch rewrite the history books!

5 points to remember!

1. The Dutch won their first SWC match that went to penalties!

2. Their record is now 1/5 in extra time SWC matches!

3. Navas made over 10 saves in the match!

4. The last 9 sides to go first in the penalties have won, not this time.

5. Tim Krul was subbed onto the park with 10 seconds remaining, he saved two penalties to seal the Dutch's passage into the semi finals.

Tim Krul has only saved 2/20 in the EPL.

Why sub him on?

06 Jul 00:38

I feel for Jasper Cillessen.

Subbed off and won't be the hero of this shooutout!

06 Jul 00:35

113' Lens is offside again!

But NAVAS saves the shot anyway! 


06 Jul 00:25

111' Navas taken out by Huntelaar in the air.

Only 10 minutes to go until penalties.

06 Jul 00:22

108' Huntelaar's attempt from Robben's cross goes well over.

06 Jul 00:21

107' Just 13 minutes to go.

Panic in the final third now!

Netherlands in all out attack mode!

06 Jul 00:11

101' Robben wins the free kick. 

This time for a handball by Diaz.

Bad call...
