Quarterfinals: Netherlands beat Brazil with Wesley Sneijder's double

Share |

The Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth was the scenario for one of the most expected games in the last ten years. Superfavorite Brazil needed to beat a really talented Netherlands to reach the semifinals, but just like in Germany, it was not possible for the "verde-amarela"to reach that stage. The orange playmaker Wesley Sneijder scored twice and lead his country one step closer to the glory.

Brazil was a solid team with a furious attack in the first minutes, and the effort lead them to score first. Robinho finished a brilliant move and netted the opener, but Netherlands were patient enough to recover the ball and control the game. And the second part was completely different: the orange side became stronger and ended winning the match.

A millionaire team with players like Kaka, Robinho, Luis Fabiano or Dani Alves, to name a few, is now out of South Africa, but they can have their revenge in 2014: The World Cup will be played in Brazil.
