Netherlands come back, beat Mexico

29 Jun, 2014

Klaas-Jan Huntelaar scores an injury-time penalty to give the Netherlands a 2-1 win over Mexico and a spot in the World Cup quarterfinals. It is awarded after Rafael Marquez brings down Arjen Robben in the area. Giovani Dos Santos gives the Mexicans the lead in the 48th minute, but Wesley Sneijder equalizes for the Dutch in the 88th minute. Says Huntelaar, who makes his first appearance at this year’s World Cup:

You don’t know when your chance will come, but it was today, and so you grab it with both hands. And it was fantastic.
