Holland does a Houdini act in last-gasp 2-1 win over Mexico

Fortaleza: Holland netted twice in the dying minutes through Wesley Sneijder and substitute Klaas-Jan Huntelaar’s penalty to enter World Cup quarters with a 2-1 win over Mexico, who exit at the last 16 stage in a 6th consecutive WC. In an Estadio Castelao match played in baking heat needing 3 cooling breaks, Giovani dos Santos opened the scoring, only for Sneijder to level 2 minutes from time before Huntelaar converted in stoppage time after Rafael Marquez had upended Arjen Robben. Man of the Match Guillermo Ochoa showed superb reflexes to repel Stefan De Vrij’s point-blank strike. An early injury to Nigel de Jong brought in Bruno Martins Indi. Att: 58,817
