Holland down Chile 2-0: both advance

Sao Paulo: Super-subs Leroy Fer with his first international goal and Memphis Depay sank Chile as the Netherlands won 2-0 to top the group. With Robin van Persie suspended, Jeremain Lens made his Cup debut, only to be substituted by Depay of Ghanian descent. Depay made a sliding injury time finish from a raking cross by Man of the Match, Arjen Robben. Striker Alexis Sanchez tormented the Dutch defence. van Persie’s absence also meant that for the first time in 18 years, the Netherlands started without a single played named ‘van’ on the field. The last time this happened was in a 1996 Euro Championships warm-up friendly against China. 62,996 fans thronged Arena de Sao Paulo.
