Netherlands vs Chile 2014 World Cup Highlights Goals GIFs Photos
Dutch midfielder Leroy Fer scored his first international goal as Netherlands strolled past Chile in their last group stage game to finish their Group Stage campaign with 3 wins in 3 games. Chile fought hard but in the end the Dutch were just too good for them. The Dutch will now face either Mexico or Croatia in their Round of 16 match.
Robin van Persie started on the bench for the 2010 runners up in what was a highly anticipated match of the Group Stage. The match however failed to live up to its expectations, until the second half where late heroics from Leroy Fer and Memphis Depay ensured 3 points for the Dutch.
van Persie’s absense meant Arjen Robben was the commander-in-chief of the attack and he demonstrated his quality by producing some brilliant individual runs in the first half. He was, however unsuccessful in all his endeavours as the Chile defense remained solid throughout the first half, denying Loius van Gaal’s men a goal.
Netherlands however took the lead in the 77th minute through a bullet header by Leroy Fer as he met a cross by Daryl Janmaat and scored his first international goal for Netherlands.
Netherlands then doubled their lead in injury time to put the game beyond Chile’s reach. Arjen Robben made a run on the left and squared superbly for Memphis to tap home in injury-time. This was Memphis Depay’s second goal of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
Chile’s defeat to Netherlands means they finish second in Group B ahead of Spain and Australia and will face Brazil in the Round of 16 match. Netherlands will face the runners up of Group A that will be decided by the game late night between Croatia and Mexico.
