RIO DE JANEIRO — The Netherlands coach Louis van Gaal is proving
to be the master of well-planned substitutions at this World Cup.
Dutch have recovered from 1-0 down to win three times, and four of
the seven goals the Oranje have scored over the past three games have
come from Van Gaal's second-half substitutes.
Winger Arjen Robben
said "our strength this World Cup is that we have shown that everyone
from the bench can have a big impact on the game."
Huntelaar illustrated that depth in the round-of-16 game against Mexico.
In his 21-minute cameo appearance, he set up Wesley Sneijder's
equalizing goal in the 88th minute and then scored the winning goal from
the penalty spot.
