The best match of the World Cup so far as Australia were able for about an hour to outplay the Netherlands until they ran out of gas. Eventually, the Dutch managed to come through with a dramatic 3-2 victory that keeps them on top of Group B and pretty much secures their place in the round of 16 unless something completely unexpected happens as the trio of Arjen Robben, Robin van Persie and Memphis Depay scored for the Oranje.
