Netherlands nudge past Australia

The Netherlands beat Australia, 3-2, in a see-sawing game of fluctuating fortunes that gave the Dutch a cushion of certainty of entering the knockout stages, and all but assured that barring a miracle Australia would exit the World Cup after this round. In Estadio Beira-Rio, Man of the Match Arjen Robben struck first. The Socceroos responded in a trice with a superb Tim Cahill volley, scoring again in his 3rd World Cup. Australia led through Mile Jedinak’s penalty following a hand ball. Holland equalised with Robin van Persie firing into the roof of the net. The winner came through the 20-year-old rising star Memphis Depay, whose shot beat the Oz keeper Ryan. Attendance: 42,877
