Slovakia’s unbelievable run reached the end of the line today when the Netherlands beat them 2-1. The sole goal was scored in added time from the spot.

The Netherlands controlled play for basically the entirety of the game and move on to face the winner of Brazil v. Chile. Arjen Robben wasted no time when his sharp cut from the right to his left to the top of the box was followed up by a precision strike that was difficult for anyone to deal with. His goal came after only 18 minutes and quickly Slovakia was behind. Slovakia did create their share of chances with the best of these coming in the 68th minute from their magic man Robert Vittek, but his shot was to close to the keeper making it more or less an easy save. The Dutch then layed the knockout blow in the 84th when they netted their second goal fed by Kuyt into the path of Sneijder who neatly tucked it away.

The game was as many predicted, on sided and an easy win for the Netherlands. But the Dutch’s path will get rockier as the games drag on and their opponents get tougher, hopefully they’re up to the task.
